SOURCE: Hard Drive Password Lock out

If you are able to locate either the jumper (JBAT1) terminal from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2; or the cmos battery(remove for about 10 minutes) which will be on the motherboard although where is anyones guess, unless somebody does know, but i'm sorry i don't. Athough this may not open up the hardrive as sometimes there is a hidden file on some manufacturers hardrives that sometimes prevent formating.

SOURCE: it says missing operating system

You have a crash on your hands. Try removing the hdd and ram - cleaning the ends or terminals on the pieces you CAREFULLY remove and then place them back into the PC. First remove and clean the HDD - then remove the RAM - - if you have more than on 'stick' of ram - pull them both - clean them both then STOP. Put just ONE stick of ram in the machine and try to start it - if it doesn't start remove that stick of ram and try the other. If the Laptop comes on then try the other stick. Pay attention because if one is bad it will stop the pc from working. Sadly it sounds like you will need to either repair or reinstall the Operating system. However there are things you can do to find out what you must do. Try these things and let me know how it works out.

SOURCE: eee pc 1005ha bios setup won't start, it just hangs while entering, just after detecting the hard drive.

Maybe you are not giving it enough time to get into the setup.

Let it sit for a while and see what happens.

Don't restore the system to a hard disk of different size. You may fix the old disk again and use it while using the new (probably larger) disk as an external disk (by fixing a driver bay).
If you want to use the new disk you will have to install the operating system and software from scratch.

Cant remember recovery password for recovery of my acer aspire 3050


I don't think there is a recovery password..It may be the BIOS one ..and asks you that cause it needs to boot from the recovery partition ..try it ..If it is not working ..and you do not remember setting a password for it ..try on the support site ..maybe there is a factory one .....(also try the manual in this case it may be mentioned..)
If you know for sure you inserted a password for it ..and now you can not remember it ..im not sure you will be able to use it ..unless you find a way to eliminate it ..Or ..try to use a recovery disk from now on ..or a boot-able disk with the operation system and install it normally and not from the partition ..
If it is the same with the bios password ..I understood there are ways to remove it ..using either a password generator ..or a master one from the manufacturer support site ..or removing its battery ..(BIOS battery )
