Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I am working on an hp computer with vista installed on it. i have tried 3 different brands of flash drives and it won't recognize any of them. i get the icon in the task bar that i can safely remove hardware but it doesn't show up in my computer. i had read on the internet that i need to delete a file (which i can't find the name of this file right now) so i tried and it wouldn't let me delete it. i went into safe mode to delete it and it tells me i don't have administrator rights even though i am the administrator of the computer. it asks for a password too. if someone has set a password for the admin that is built into the os, can it be removed? is there another way to get around this? i haven't really worked with vista that much...i don't really care to either but would like to help my friend out. is there another solution to getting these flash drives to work? thanks in advance
Did you format the flash drive?. Try it in another machine and just right click on format. I had a similar problem and that worked for me. If you have an xp machine available, use that one. Also you can create another account and establish the admin rights, then delete the current one if you don't want to have to click on which acct to use on startup, the password should be removable in safe mode, from the conrtol panel, under user accts.
