    I am using vista. and there is one other account with no password



  • maggie30701 Apr 13, 2009

    what happens if i try to delete or rename the administrative account? will it even let me? You see i have a guest account and i have a another standard user account the one with my actual name (which is the one i cant remember the password for is the administrative account.

    Ok..so here is what I did..( I wonder if you know how brilliant you really are? lol) Upon doing what you suggested to begin with -delete the account- a pop up informed me that i should 1. set up another account and make it an administrative account WITH NO PASSWORD LOL . 2. come back and make this account a standard account and then i would be able to delete it. (since i didnt have a password for it anyway. 3. When I deleted the initial account it asked if I wanted to save my files on the desktop of the new administrative account and OFCOURSE i said yes. So now I have on administrative account with no password , one standard guest account with no password and a standard account for myself that i may use a password for...I dont know since now I have password phobia lol . Just want you to know that you were the only one able to steer me in the right direction and I have been trying for days via internet, phone and even went to an IT guy and emailed the manufacturers (THEY ARE HORRIBLE AND i WILL NEVER BUY FROM THEM AGAIN) They wanted to charge me $100.00 just to see the laptop. Anyway..I will never stop praying for your health, wealth and well being. Thank you Thank you Thank you

Try this, open the other account. Go into control panel, User Accounts, then you should see all of the accounts. You can't change or delete the password on the account you are talking about because you have to know the other password to do it..you'll have to delete the account or rename it if possible. If none of that can be done then I'll give you a website that you can download a windows password recovery program.

    Well see what's suppose to happen in a perfect world is, when you first get your computer is you rename your administrative account and then use the new account for everyday things. Then if you forget your password or need other administrative task you still have the administrator account to fall back on since it sits idle. The administator account is in default in Vista, so although you are part of the administators group you're not using the real administrators account. So yes, you should be able to rename unless the admin account was enabled and password protected.

I have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

Acer Aspire 5315 Keyboard Laptop Notebook replacement $15

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.
