    Toshiba MK1246GSX is a Toshiba harddrive for laptops. It's in your laptop now.

    Is this the first time you've used this laptop? I ask, because it sounds like no Operating System is installed. (Windows XP and Vista are examples of an O/S)

    Toshiba MK1246GSX is a Toshiba harddrive for laptops. (It's 2.5 inches across in width)
    It's in your Acer laptop.

    Is this the first time you've used this laptop? Sounds like there is no Operating System on it. (Windows XP and Windows Vista are examples of an O/S)

    Does it ask for a password? If so,you don't need to guess if it some sort of password.

    Just post all the details.

Forgotten user password

yes you can but you will loose all information on the computer. Try booting it up in safe mode by pressing F8 right after the acer sign soon as you turn the laptop on.

I have an acer 57515Z series which my daughter put a password on startup on and forgot. After trying numerous times to get in the laptop now on start up comes up with Harddisk Security. Primary Master...

Ask your daughter. She set that password, and she needs to enter the password.

Otherwise, find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you (and not a thief) has possession of the laptop, and telephone ACER, and ask for help in bypassing the password.

Acer aspire 5050 asking for a password upon start up

If it is asking for a password upon startup then someone put a password on your CMOS. Unfortunately, unless you can find out what the password is, then the only way to clear it is to remove the battery in your motherboard. The battery is what keeps the information in CMOS when the computer is turned off.
