Do what teddux said:
reboot and get in dos prompt by pressing f8 at start.
in the command prompt and type:

control userpasswords2

Then you can do password checking/modifications from there.

    Only one way to find out, try it from windows.
    If you want to boot with drive A:, then there is a 48Hr. wait.


  • ted dux Feb 17, 2009

    Try the easy way and see if it works without admin privileges:
    Google rockXP4.


  • ted dux Feb 17, 2009

    Also, reboot and get in by pressing f8 - start
    the command prompt and type:
    control userpasswords2

  • ted dux Feb 18, 2009

    If you want to format/partition, you will HAVE to change options in bios.

Download this 3 MB zip file. Then extract it. It will be an ISO image file that you will need to burn directly (not normal copy) on to a blank CD. If you are usng Nero, there's an option to "burn image to disk" option, use that.

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080802.zip

Boot the computer  using the CD and follow the instructions to change the admin password.

    Alright, a little bit big download but it will save you some hassles. Get this file (about 178 MB)
    http://rapidshare.com/files/197688221/Hi...

    Once your get it, unrar it ( if unable to open it and not having winrar, get it free fromhttp://www.rarlabs.com) and you will get the iso file. Burn the iso image on to a CD and boot the laptop from the CD. It contains tons of tools both for cmos and admin password recovery.

    Only thing is it has a DOS interface but it is menu driven so should not be a problem. The only keys you need to use are Esc (to exit to previous), Enter, and the arrow keys to navigate.

    Post back if any problem.

    HTH,
    Regards,
    Deboo

    You need not change the boot sequence, don't worry.

Format acer n214


Format? Format is for a hard drive, so what is it that you want to do? Are you trying to Format your hard drive so nothing is on it. Formatting a drive wipes out everything, the drive is completely empty until you put something on it.

Maybe you are talking about doing a System Restore which will set you computer back to a particular date and time before you started having problems. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was install after the restore point date and time you selected). To get to System Restore Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a restore point (date and time before you started having problems).

Maybe you are talking about System Recovery. System Recovery sets your system back to when you first purchased it from the store. It deletes everything. All your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and any program you installed after you purchased it will be gone. Normally to get to System Recovery you will have to hit one of the F1 thru F12 keys repeatedly when you press the power button. Your manual will tell you the exact key to hit. Sometimes the Recovery will be listed on the program list. Click Start/Programs/ and look for System Recovery, it might be inside of one of the Acer Folders in the program list. Hopefully there is a Recovery Partition on your hard drive called Recovery. Click Start/My Computer and look to see if you see a Recovery drive listed. Sometimes the drive is hidden so you can't see it. If the drive is not present you will need a set of Recovery Disks you created or the manufacturer gave you.

Maybe you are talking about Reinstalling Windows. If you do a Clean or Complete Install it will format the drive and delete everything before installing windows. There are ways to do a Repair Install that will save all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. You will need an Operating System Disk to perform a windows installation. It has to be the exact operating system as that which is on your Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker on the computer somewhere. If it says Windows XP Professional you cannot use a Windows XP Home disk to do the install and vice versa.

How to format C & D drive on a PC with OS Windows XP


Hello
You can't for c:... at least not while you're running Windows. You'll have to reboot from the Windows XP installation CD, because you can't format the drive on which Windows is running. But first you'll probably want to back up your hard drive, or at least part of it. For help with that, see Backing Up Your Files and explore the various options for backing up your personal files. Okay, back to reformatting... when the install disk boots up, press ENTER at the "Welcome to Setup" screen. If prompted to do so, press F8 to agree to the license. Next, you'll see a message asking if you want to repair your existing installtion. You don't, so press ESC to bypass the repair option. Now select the partition where Windows is installed, then press D to delete it. Press L to confirm the delete. Okay, it's time to create and format a new partition. Select the unpartitioned space and press C to create a new partition. Allot the maximum amount of space available, then press Enter. Now select the partition you've just created, and format it. Choose the NTFS option, go for the "quick format" then sit and wait. When the new partition is formatted, you're ready to (re)install Windows. Depending on your hardware, you may also need to re-install some software drivers to support a modem, router, printer or other devices. Make sure that you have the driver CDs handy in advance. Don't forget to reinstall your anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and be sure to visit Windows Update as soon as possible to ensure that you have all the latest security fixes.
Hope this helps if so do rate the solution

My comp crashed recently, i've changed the hard drive and now can't load an OS onto it. we've tried 3 different versions of xp and vista and four different discs, any suggestions?


A memory dump or the blue screen on start-up with the memory address as you mentioned is telling you that there is a problem with hardware - it could be you new hard drive - try making 2 partitions on it and remember to do a full format and not a quick format, I would also be looking at your ram and making sure it is ok. I have come across many times where a computer has been working ok with the old ram but after formatting and reinstalling it would crash at about 36%.

I have a virus and I need to format my pc I think I hit ctrl alt f11 but not sure can someone help


Hi bethybaby90, I would like to inform you that Formatting a PC is to delete all the data that currently is on your Computer and upgrade it to a newer version of an operating system or install the same operating system once again on the same computer.
The process of formatting is as follows:
1. Insert the WINDOWS XP bootable disk in the CD drive.
2. Restart your PC (if it was already running).
3. Press enter when the monitor reads PRESS ANY KEY.
4. Now comes the time to partition your drives.
5. If you want to delete any partition, press D or L(whichever is displayed on the screen).
6. Afterwards format the drive you want to install the operating system (XP) in.
7. Press ENTER.
8. The formatting will start.
9. Follow the procedures.
10.It should take around 40 minutes for the installation to finish.
11.Use windows(HAVE A GOOD TIME).

I hope this resolves your issue.
Your feedback is appreciated.

Invalid partition


im sorry you are having this problem, i too have done the same thing once on my hard drive, here is what you have to do, now that you have xp installed on the hard drive you now have to reinstall vista to a new folder and once its installed it will then allow you to dual boot vista/xp, this is exactly what i did so im on xp right now with a clean install of vista just hangin around

Invalid Partition


Is this a physically separate drive that you are talking about, or just a partition of the same drive?

If this is all one physical drive, you may have already formatted it with the installation. Partitioning can be done to where you install the operating system in another location than your already stored data or another operating system, but that is dependent upon which options you selected when you installed the operating systems each time.

Try this, right click on Computer or My Computer, and select manage. Select disk management under storage. Find your partition or drive and right click and see if you can select - mark partition as active - or something of that sort. Then see if you can explore it.

Hope that helps

Vista recovery/hard drive


hi your hard drive is a 250gig when your reinstalling vista it will think that your pc needs to split the hard drives for recovery this is why its done that and because of that it will use a small part of the hard drive for its own mem use so you will lose the total size of the hard drive im running 1000gig and only getting 800 gig for my self this you cannot do anything about .
the only thing you can do is reinstall your vista program and when on the screen for formatting the hard drive it will say do you want to format the partitions in the box there will be a delet this partition you must delet all the partitions so there is only one left then you must reinstall vista on that one only this will get rid of all the other ones so you sould be left with just 1 hard drive when you start up vista this should put you back on to close to 235gig
hope this works for you
all the best thanks
