SOURCE: Can i system reset an

First, we need to know what password it is. If it is a BIOS password which displays during start up even before windows logo is displayed, then you are out of luck. This BIOS Admin Passwords are integrated into the computer's hardware and can only removed by replacing the chip of clearing the CMOS Chip.

Now if it is a windows password you can try one of the following:

Windows XP:
When the system is booting, before the windows logo shows, press F8 repeatedly(don't worry if the computer start beeping when you press the key, its normal) once you do that you'll see a screen with a bunch of options, choose 'Safe Mode'. Your computer will scroll up the screen with all the files it is loading to start in safe mode. Now you should see your list of users at the login screen, plus one additional one Called "Administrator" select that. After Everything is loaded, it will ask you a yes or no message, click 'yes' and then goto your control panel, located in your 'Start' Menu. Once in there Open User Accounts. Then Choose 'Change an Account'. Locate the user you wish to change the password on, double click it and then select 'Remove Password' and then select 'Remove Password' Button again.

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Hope this Helps.

Need to know how to restore to factory settings. The acer recovery system does NOT work. Windows does not boot up. Tried everything to get it working.

Not booting up? Does it show blue screen then resets every time you boot? Can you atleast go to safe mode, by pressing F8 at initial boot?

Do I risk damaging my Acer Aspire 5742 by connecting it to my HDTV and watching for an extended period of time, i.e. 5 hours?

No you shouldn't be. If you're really worried about it though you could always get yourself a laptop cooler.

On this page go down to the bottom of the paragraph, and left-click right on - Acer Aspire 5742 Service Manual.

It works, I'm looking at the Service Manual right now.

[ The above is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name ( Acer Aspire 5743 Service Manual), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up ]

Not what you had in mind?
