Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook Boots to Windows, but nothing works. No keyboard, no mouse, no usb or CD, no external monitor. I have an Aspire 5100 Acer Laptop that has no keyboard or mouse function period...


Try booting your computer from CD ROM with the OS CD/DVD already inserted and when prompted just try repair. If that does not work re-install the same on the same 'partition' assuming it to be C by deleting the the windows system files only. While doing so keep the internet on and immediately after the basic version of the OS is installed and the m/c boots-up for the first time, go to the official website and download the latest drivers for every component like toch-pad, keypad, display, audio, etc.(i.e. almost all the drivers)

Having problems restoring my acer 5100 notebook.need help please!


Hi there.
Log into Windows and press Acer Empowering Key to launch, you can use that utility to restore the system.
If you have a pqservice partition but alt f10 does not work there is a file called mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin which is needed to install the acer missing magic code all you have to do is type the following on a dos prompt. mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin it adds the file to a slot
Once you have done that reboot the computer and wait it takes a while to restart, it then it seems to find new hardware (dont know what it finds) then do a reboot and then you can alt f10 to your hearts content.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Keyboard not working


is this a windows login password or a boot password

you should have Fn key on keyboard
and another coloured key to correspond for turning on keyboard press Fn and the other key simultaneously
Could be fn f3 keys
if you just bought you may find it in your manual
please let me know if you still need help
if you have a switch above scroll pad you may have shut that off but all models don't come with that option

Acer Aspire 5100 wont boot, and I'mnow on this "EDIT BOOT OPTIONS" screen... It's seems that if I knew what to type in I could Undo whatever the issue is. Can someone please help me figure out what I do...


edit boot options is the order in which your computer will reboot... select hard drive... if it does not successfully boot up... reboot and tap the F8 key.... boot to last known good configuration... if that doesn't work... reboot... F8 the safe mode... if it will boot to safe mode reboot normally... should be fine

No password to enter computer


When the login screen comes up and asks for the username and password.
Username - Administraion
there should be no password for that account.
Once into the system go to the control panel and then to user accounts and change what you desire.

XP home hold F8 untill you get to the boot mode and choose Safe Mode once in to the system go to control panel and user accounts and do the same as above.
If this doesnt work please respond with OS.
