Is it a windows password or a bios password?
If it is windows then keep pressing f8 button just before the windows loading screen comes up and go into safe mode.
From there you can log on as administrator and go into control panel/ user accounts to reset passwords.
If it is a bios password (when you first turn on the computer) you need to remove all power sources and then remove the cmos battery for a few minutes. can be a tricky procedure though.

I have a acer aspire 5551-2306 and I have forgotten the password and cannot do anything. How do I get pass this?


You can reset a lost or forgot Windows password with 4 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Breaker.

4. Re-install. Will lose data.

Hi,

If this is a BIOS password, it will be difficult to to bypass without removing the CMOS battery.

If it is a windows password, you will need to reinstall the OS.

Hdd password reset


Hi,
Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.
