First, you need to reset lost Windows password, there are several ways to fix this. You can try some programs which can reset Windows password quickly and safely. "Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0" is a good choice, I have used this on my Dell laptop and it regained my password quickly. You can search this on Google.
Then you can open "Control Panel" to restore your computer

Good Luck!

SOURCE: need to restore acer to factory settings

just boot from your backup disk. it will guide you to reload the Operating system (factory default).
FYI, if you haven't delete the recovery partition, you can use alt+f10 to reload. just press alt+f10 during boot.

SOURCE: need to restore factory sttings

When you purchased or otherwise received this unit, it came with a CD that enabled you to restore it to factory settings. You may contact ACER customer service for replacements if you are not in possession of these discs, but otherwise you are not going to be able to restore this to the point you would like to. Check your original packaging, and I am sure you will fine the discs.

SOURCE: I've bought a Acer Aspire

Hi,

I've run into that problem before. Luckily for me I had a set of OEM disks handy, but I'm guessing you are a little more limited in options ;) That's ok, it can be worked around.

Do you still have access to the computer itself? If so then you should be able to find the password. It's kept in a file in the recovery partition. More specifically in the "\TOOLS\AIMDRS.DAT" file.

If you are able to access the recovery partition, usually the D:, then you should be able to just open that file in a text editor like notepad. If you can't view the partition then you will need to get a partition editing program just as GParted.

With GParted you burn it to a cd, restart the computer, and boot to the disk. From the interface you will want to find in list of partitions that one with a label resembling "recovery". If not then look for one that is only about 8-12GB in size. Right click on it, select "Flags" and make sure that "hidden" is not selected. after that hit the apply button at the top if it isn't greyed out, then exit the program and reset the computer. You should now have access to the recovery partition.

Hope that helps, if not let me know :)

I forgot my password to my dell latitude i need to restore it back to factory setttins i already have it took apart


Are you restoring back to Factory Setting simply because you forgot the password? Please tell me NO. If so, that is not what you want to do. Resetting to Factory Settings will cause you to lose all your documents, music, pictures & videos unless you have them backed up somewhere outside of the computer. If all you need is the password removed, try turning off your machine, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot. When the log in screen appears you will see the account for which you forgot the password and the Administrator account. Select the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it also). If you log in successfully with the Administrator account click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When you are in the User Accounts select the account for which you forgot the password, then select the option to Remove Password. Now reboot your machine.

How to retreive Wi-Fi WPA2 password which I forgot?


Hi there.

If you forgot your wifi password, all you need to do is reset your modem. Doing this will restore your modem to it's factory settings.

Find the reset hole, could be on the side, front or back of the modem. Unfold a paper clip and push the reset hole with the paper clip. Hold it down for about 10 seconds or until it turns off.

When you turn the modem on, it is already back to factory settings and it will no longer ask for a password.

Let me know what happens.

Thank you!

I have not use my Lenovo s10 4333 in about one year. I forgot the password. I would like to open with a new password.


Welcome to Fixya

If you are referring with the windows password. You cannot retrieve the old password if you already forgot it. One way for you to be able to use the computer again is to restore it from the factory state. Turn off the computer then press the small button located right beside the power button. This will restore the computer back to factory state. Once the computer is restored, you can now type in whatever password you want.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Forgot password to acess< and or its still default setting. could you tell me what the wireless 700 routers default password is


Restore Factory Default Settings When you restore factory default settings to the base station, you clear your Internet connection settings and any special base station configurations that you have established. After the restore is complete, you will need to reconfigure your base station settings or restore these settings from a backup file. You should restore the original factory default settings only under the following circumstances: O You are experiencing serious problems with your base station, and resetting the base station does not fix the problem. O You cannot remember your base station password. In this situation, you must restore the factory default settings by using the Restore button on the base station, and then use the default password admin to log on to the Base Station Management Tool. To restore factory default settings 1. Open the Base Station Management Tool, and then click Management. 2. On the Management menu, click Back Up and Restore Settings. 3. Under Restore factory default settings, click Restore Factory Default Settings. While the original factory default settings are being restored to the base station, the Power light on the base station turns orange. When the light is solid green, the settings have been restored. If you want to open the Base Station Management Tool after the settings have been restored, type admin as the password on the Logon page. Do not attempt to log on to the base station until the settings are restored and the Power light on the base station is solid green. After you restore the factory default settings to the base station, you should navigate to each page of the Base Station Management Tool and reestablish the network settings you want, or restore the base station settings by using a backup file. For information about creating a backup file of your settings, see the following section. Be sure to establish your unique base station password as soon as possible after restoring the factory default settings to prevent unauthorized users from logging on. For more information, see “Change the Base Station Password.” please rate this answer, thanks
