Question about Acer Aspire 3680 PC Notebook
Unfortunately if he does not remember the HDD password you will not get it to boot unless there is a supervisor password that he remembers so it can be over ridden. Based on what you have alluded to in your request I doubt you have that either. The simplest solution is to purchase a new hard drive and reinstall the operating system from the original recovery disks. Without the HDD password the disk is basically unusable and never will be.
You can purchase a new IDE HD for about US $50 off the internet at a site like buy.com or newegg.com. I am not recommending either but just as examples of where you could get the item.
