Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop
I installed windows 7 from the previous vista version,but cannot startup-because it does not recognise my previous password or finger recogntion on the finger swipe used on the older vista os
Safe Mode and System Restore can fix startup issues in an
Acer Aspire One, but if the computer won't even load the boot screen, the
problem could be related to the basic input/output system (BIOS).
The Acer Aspire One 110 and 150 are two models that can have BIOS-related problems that prevent the computer from booting.
You can upgrade the BIOS through a USB flash drive to repair this issue.
If you are able boot past the startup screen, but can't sign in to Windows, you can use Windows Advanced Boot Options to bypass startup problems.
Go to the Acer website (see Below).
Click "Support," then select "Download" from the menu on the left.
Select "Netbook" as the product family.
Click "Aspire One" as the product line. Select "AOA110" or "AOA150" as the product model.
Click the "BIOS" tab.
Click the download button and save the file to the desktop.
Go to the desktop when the download completes.
Double-click the file to open it.
Drag-and-drop the folder to the desktop.
Double-click the folder to open its contents in Windows Explorer.
Double-click the "BIOS_Acer_3310_A_AOA110 & AOA150" folder.
Double-click the "Dos_Flash" folder.
Insert a blank USB flash drive into a USB slot.
Drag-and-drop the "3310.fd" and "Flashit.exe" files to the flash drive.
Right-click the "3310.fd" file. Click "Rename."
Change the file name to "zg5ia32.fd" and press "Enter."
Connect the AC adapter to the power jack.
Hold down "Fn" and "Esc" with one hand, then press the power button with the other.
Release the "Fn" and "Esc" keys when the power indicator light comes on.
Wait at least seven minutes for the system to fix the BIOS and repair the Acer Aspire One startup issues.
The computer will restart automatically when the process is complete.
Turn on the computer.
Press "F8" before the Windows logo appears to access the Windows Advanced Boot Options menu.
Scroll to Last-Known Good Configuration.
Press "Enter" to load Windows.
If the OS fails to start up, hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the computer.
Press the power button to turn the Acer Aspire One back on. Press "F8," then select "Safe Mode" from the options.
Log in to Safe Mode. Click "Start," "All Programs," "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Click "Next."
Select the last working restore point from the options. Click "Next."
Click "Finish" to run System Restore and recover the Acer Aspire One to a previous state.

There is always a password associated with the "finger swipe"
If he somehow managed to setup without a password you would be able to hit the enter key with the password bar blank and get in.
If you get an incorrect password error that means there is a password.
If you could get him to let you in once you could change the password. The only other way is to remove the cmos battery and reset the bios, you would need to disassemble the laptop to do that.
If I was a CSI I would be able to tell you how to lift his print off of a glass of water and make a mold of it(just kidding, I don't think that works)
Sorry I couldn't be of more help but let me know if I can help with removal of the cmos battery.
Please rate this solution.

The problem might be with your OS because many a time a the driver of your sound card is not matched with the OS as your OS is 64-bit any it might be possible that your sound driver is build for 32-bit.
So I request that you can contact your laptop vendor for assistance or can make a call to any professional laptop repairing center. Bye

There might be a hardware compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the microphone driver. The following two web sites might offer information that can better help to find a possible solution.
1). The Microsoft Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility List. It can only be viewed with Internet Explorer.
2). The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer Aspire 5315 is NOT in this list !):
