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.

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)

    Once your get it, unrar it ( if unable to open it and not having winrar, get it free from 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.


  • Deboo Geek Feb 17, 2009

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

When i open my laptop, then boot, it goes to this windows 98 startup menu which has following options: reboot to windows xp, recover windows xp w/ full hd, recover xp w/ 2 partitions, and recover xp w/ 1...

first, recover your files. You will need to use something like this data recovery program.

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

Need to factor reset,|NOT REBOOT, for acer aspire 3630 windows xp

Hi and welcome to Fixya..

Reinstalling Windows XP on an Acer Aspire 3000 is fairly straightforward. You may need to reinstall Windows XP due to hardware failure, a virus infection, major hardware changes or a hard drive upgrade. Whatever the reason, you can do the reinstall yourself at home. The reinstall will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of your hard drive. Be aware that reinstalling Windows XP will format your hard drive, getting rid of all data on, so you'll want to back it all up on a media device.
  • Step 1
Back up all data on your computer before reinstalling.
  • Step 2 Insert the Windows XP disk and restart your computer.
  • Step 3 Press any key when prompted to begin running the disk.
  • Step 4 Press F8 to agree to the terms of service.
  • Step 5 Choose the partition you want to reinstall Windows XP on. This is usually "C:" for most users.
  • Step 6 Choose the type of format. You can choose either "Quick" or "Full" for NTFS systems. A quick format only takes a few minutes less than the full format.
  • Step 7 Wait for the format to complete. The Windows XP installation wizard will begin. You will be asked to choose your time zone, computer name, and to input any network information. Otherwise, the reinstall will run by itself.

  • I hope this helps

    Windows xp will not load

    When it asks for administrator password, and you didn't have one set, just push enter and you'll be able to continue.

    If you don't need any information from the computer, use a program to writes zeros to the drive and then you'll be able to install windows. HDD manufacturers provide a program to zero the drive

    2. Run updater, press and hold play button until its been detected fully by the updater.

    3. Check the format box(My friend's unit firmware ver is to something when updated).

    4. Hit the update button or something like that. do not detached the unit until its done. Unmount the unit using unmount method "Safely remove hardware".

    5. Turn on the unit it should pass the 20 percent mark. When its good it has no file yet coz of format option. Just load your song.

    I think it happens when too much file is upload in the unit. 60 percent of its capacity may be enough.

    HDD Reformatting

    why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.

    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

    Have you ever tried reinstalling windows xp before? if not then revert back to me. I'll teach you how to check if the system still has PC restore. If you ever have tried reinstalling windows or your hdd has been replaced, then you may need to reinstall windows manually by using the discs.

    Hope this helps.
