Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

1 Answer

It won't recognize me as Admin.

I'm the only account, I don't get it. What do I have to do to install my software? I tried right clicking but it won't work either. I had to explore the disk to even get that as an option...

    I even just made a SECOND account as another Admin. To no avail...

    If you click Start, Settings, User Accounts are you sure Administrator isnt listed there as well? You should also be able to check your own account from here and see is it part of the Administrators group.

You do not have Admin rights. You are a Guest


To make and add a local admin! Save as batch file in startup group. Copy and paste systex code into Notepad. Save as Admin.bat. Go to Start > All Programs > Startup. Right click and save in Startup folder. Reboot. You now have an Administrator account. Login as Nadmin. No password required.

@echo off
net user Nadmin /add /expires:never /passwordreq:no
net localgroup "Administrators" /add Nadmin


Go to Start > Control Panel > User Accounts to make user changes.

Need 2 know how 2 disable administrator password


Right click on your computer icon on the desktop and in that menu choose "Manage". Click on "local users and groups". Double click on the Users folder. In there you will see your administrator account. It will either say Administrator or whatever you named it during the windows installation.
Right click on the admin account and go into properties. Then check the box that says Account is disabled. This in effect will disable the admin password because nobody will be able to use the admin account.

How do i reset my password in laptop


If you've forgotten your Windows password and you're on a domain, you should contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you're not on a domain, you can reset your password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.

If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.

Player is not recognized by any computers


Try downloading the software and/or drivers for it before connecting it to your pc. If you no longer have the disk that came with it - go to the manufacturers website and download them there. Don't connect it to your pc until the software is installed. The computer won't recognize it until the software and/or drivers are installed.

Limited User access will not open files in software program


boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)

Ok you should try being logged onto the admin account, having admin rights is not the same as being logged on to the admin account.

Most problems with Vista seem to be easily over ridden by being logged on to the Admin account.

Note: This may or may not be the solution to your problem, so please take the time to rate the solution, thank you.
