Question about Acer Aspire One D257-13404 Netbook 1.66 Gh 250gb Hdd, Manufacturer Refurb

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

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
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 :)
