    well you can pull the hard drive out and set it up as a slave drive in another computer and format it that way, or use an external sata or ide connector to usb whichever technology you have, the config password i believe can be reset by pulling out the cmos battery from the systemboard (looks like a small watch battery), if you dont have a battery then there is a jumper that will clear the cmos but that requires finding the manual for the systemboard, there are always options but you start with the easiest one first

Step 1:
Which model of acer laptop ? there are many

The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is designed to check the integrity of the computer hardware and launch the operating system. The BIOS also has basic security features that prevent unauthorized access to the computer by locking the hard drive with a password. The password is required in order to launch the operating system. That option can be disable without an changes to the operating system.

Turn your computer on. Press "Esc," "Del," "F2" or "F8" to access the BIOS. Use the arrow keys to go to the "Security" tab. Press "Enter." Highlight "HDD Lock," Boot Password" or "Hard Drive password" using the arrow keys. Press "+" until "Disable" appears. Go to the "Exit" tab, highlight "Save and Exit" and press "Enter." Press "Y" when prompted to reboot your computer without the hard drive password.

Dear Sir I have a problem with ACER EXTENSA-5210 Laptop , I cant format my hard disk and windows instolation plz what can i format my laptop


of course you can format your laptop's hard disk. but you cannot do it while you are running windows. to format your hard disk and install a fresh copy of windows, you need to have 1) Windows XP CD Installer and 2) a valid cd key to complete your installation

How?

Load the CD Installer to your CD/dvd drive and restart your windows. When booting, your laptop recognize a bootable CD so it boots from there and not from your hard disk. Just follow the on-screen instructions to proceed.

Installing windows on acer notebook help


you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.

View fies in my hardisk when windows does not load


Well it sounds like you are booting with the cd however it's your harddrive that's having a issue.
Go into the bios and check to see if your computer see's a hard drive.
If you can't do that put the laptop against your ear and listen to see if you hear the harddrive spin up.
Either way you do not have access to c:\
The harddrive either died or someone might have dropped it or jarred it and somehow it came unplugged depending on the laptop or notebook you have.

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
