Reset hdd lock for acer aspire


Step 1:
The Dell Inspiron 1501 is a laptop computer which ships with the Windows Vista operating system. Recovering a lost password can seem difficult, as you will be locked out of the passworded account until remedial measures are taken, but it is not impossible. Recover from a lost password on your Dell Vista system by using the password-recovery features of your operating system.

Restart your Dell 1501 and tap "F8" as the computer is booting. Choose the "Safe Mode" option and press "Enter." Select the "Administrator" account to log in to the computer in Safe Mode. Click "Start," type "control userpasswords2" in the "Search" box and press "Enter." Click on the locked account and press "Reset Password." This resets and recovers the password on your Dell computer.

Restoring factory settings on Dell 1501


You can run a system repair with the recovery or operating system disc to get it back to the factory settings. A repair will reset the system, and leave any of your files, pics, and programs that you've put into the machine. If you want to clear everything, and go back to the factory settings, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system.

I Have a Blank screen and can't get rid of it. What do I do to fix the problem?


Run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then the hard drive may have failed. Then reformat the drive (NTFS) and install a fresh operating system. If you have any problems during or after the format and install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
