Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I NEED STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO CHANGE PASSWORD.
IT IS THE PASSWORD THAT IS ASKED FOR AFTER THE COMPUTER COMES UP.
I've never had an acer ... but if you forgot the windows password, you're frozen. you need to run the computer in safe mode, some computers then don't requier a password. and in safe mode you can also access it via administator account, often without password, if with, someone has it, probably the person that installed the os for you. the administrator account let's you play with the passwords a lot more that your own account does.
to run in safe mode, you need restart and watch for any messages on black screen like "press F1 for bios", gist watch for something about selecting the startup mode and press the button listed. if you have quiet boot - a picture instead of most of the black screens and writings, pres escape during it to remove it. you should have the key instructions somewhere.
everything goes pretty quickly, so you might need to repeat things a bit to gett everything done fast enough.
when in safe mode, reset the vista password like usually - by the accounts manager or whatever vista has (I'm sticking to XP).
