Re: password help

Please elaborate on main password, do you mean windows password? if so: 1) download a password reset disk (I can create one for you and email it) for a small fee. 2) boot laptop, when you see acer power on logo, look on screen for recovery or setup. Most likely F2, F6, F10, or F12 key. That will bring you to an Acer recovery menu. You can restore the laptop to factory, however you will lost all your personal data, and will haver the factory loaded software .

I have a accer laptop and have forgot the pass word its running vista

try a program called ophcrack available on the net. You make a boot disc with it and when you boot it loads and searches for users and their passwords.
You may get away with hitting f5 as the system starts, selecting safe mode, logging on as administrator (which most people haven't set a password for) and then using control panel >users> to change your password

If this is an operating system password, enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8, log in as administrator, from here you can clear user passwords. If it's a bios password, then you will need to contact Acer support.

Forgot my password

Why do you need a password?.
Can't you just put the Windows CD in the drive and boot from that.
It will format the drive before it installs Windows.

Reset password

if you mean your windows log on password, you need to boot up (F8)in safe mode and log onto windows as administartor and then go to control panel>users and change your account password or delete it. If you mean system/bios password you have to locate the cmos CR2032 battery on the motherboard and remove it for 10 mins or so and replace to clear the bios memory. If it's the standard Acer bios password it's normally 0000

Reset a password

if you mean the bios password you need to remove the bios battery for about 10 minutes, if you mean the windows log on password, then you will have to get into windows in safe mode (press F8 on boot up) and get in as administrator and delete or change the password on your user account.
