Re: macbook os x

This is going to be painful but you can not remove the password from the file vault. You can remove the system password but that will make anything inside the file vault inaccessible.

If you know the system's master password you can still get into the vault.

If you don't know it the only other thing you can do is try a brute force attack on the password. If a strong password was chosen this could take an extremely long time.
The files you need to do this are here (VFCrack, but I do not have a mac so their use is beyond my scope of expertise. Hopefully someone here will be able to tell you how to compile and run them)

Erecovery password

erecovery password
Acer has a software named eRecovery. This software dedicated to their customers in order to get Windows OS recovery process a lot more easier and faster even a kid able to do it.

Acer created a hidden partition labeled PQSERVICE

You wouldn't able to see this partition in Windows explorer. If you want to see this partition existance, right-click My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management

PQSERVICE partition contain an image of Windows OS (XP/Vista/Seven) and this partition will be load to recover anytime when your Windows OS crashed, unstable, or infected by virus.

By pressing ALT+F10 before entering Windows boot process, you will access Acer eRecovery menu and asked the location where the backup will restore (ussually C: Drive). After few simple clicks (as easy as click Next) you will have your Windows back as 'factory default' state (State when you bought your Acer machine)

But how if there are password required for eRecovery? The windows is crashed and unfortunately... you don't know the password?

Here are the tricks!

Try the default password 000000

My son enter a password that he just can't

With windows 7 the password recovery is pretty complex (unless you created a backup of your password on a flash drive, etc.).
I have a bootable program that can reset the password on win 7, but it's a .iso file that I downloaded. I am not aware of a way to do this would be my guess that unless you did a password recovery in Win 7 that you will need to find someone in your area to take a look at it. It's pretty straightforward with the software.
If you happen to be in MO let me know.

My daughter recently enabled the password that she entered when she set up the EEEPC over a month ago. Unfortunately she doesn't remember what that password was! Now it boots no farther than the enter...

try F2 you didnt say whether it was set in the bios or in the initial configuration pages.
However a F9 whilst booting takes you to restore the factory settings(every other boot) goto restore factory settings--press "E"-- choose restore image--press "B"-- then try to reconfigure the first few pages of the initialising programs,date,time,location etc.
