Try the f10 or f12 recovery option, manufacturers rarely ship the laptops with disks these days, and there should be an option on boot to make the cd's that you need. If not- you will have to contact acer and ask them how to make the recovery/boot cd's

Forgot login password for windows vista home premium

You can try to reset the password in Vista with command prompt.
1. Press F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options just before the Windows loading screen appears.
2. Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
3. Log in with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen.
4. Type net user in the command prompt and then hit Enter. All the Windows account user names will be listed for you.
5. Type net user Helen 123 and hit Enter.
'Helen' is your locked Windows account user name. And '123' is the new password you want to reset for the account.

If you cannot enter the safe mode, I'm afraid you have to create a password reset disk with a CD or USB drive as follows. Otherwise, reinstallation will be your only choice.
Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Reset Deluxe from in any computer from its official site
Step 2: Use CD/DVD/USB drive to create a password disk via the program.
Step 3: Boot your locked computer from CD/DVD or USB
Step 4: Reset Windows password with the burned CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

Acer 5520 travelmate when loading has 2 vista partitions how to delete one

when you boot to your normal partition can you see the other vista drive?

this can be a restore partition so it is worth keeping but to answer your question.

go to my computer right click manage and go to disk management.

in here you should see all your disks like C:\ D:\ and E:\

now when you partition it creates a new drive letter but remains on the same disk. you will have to manually check to make sure which partition you want to delete, once you know right click that partition and click delete

Hi, I have acer laptop with window vista on it ,forgot password

You may need to do a complete reinstall. If you have the original disk, you can reinstall the operating system. If you do not have that, then you can contact the manufacturer and most times they will send you one. You might have to just pay for shipping and handling. Another option is going to your local computer store or Best Buy, Target, Walmart and purchasing an operating system CD. That will reset the entire hard drive. If you have valuable data, then you may want to get a slaver which can slave the information from your hard drive to another location as long as it is not encryted.

How do i wip out my harddrive on my acer aspire one?

Using many ways.
1. IF you have an external cdrom, use a live linux cd or bootable windows cd (XP/VISTA etc) and boot from it. Then you can format your hard drive.

2. OR use a usb stick to boot a disk wipe software like Darik's Boot and Nuke. For details, read this link:

3. Take out the hard drive from your laptop (google for instructions) and put it in a 2.5" usb enclosure (its not SSD, isn't it), connect to the usb port of another computer and format it.

WHen formatting, remember not to select the quick or fast/easy format.

Laptop says that the driver is missing.

If the computer was "new" and was shipped with Vista installed, the manufacturer probably "designed" the computer for Vista, and did not create/include device-drivers for Windows XP.
So, trying to install XP will not work.

So, insert the Microsoft Vista CD-ROM (the one shipped with the computer, not a CD-ROM purchased from a retail store, nor borrowed from a friend), and boot from it, and reinstall Vista.

What manufacturer/model of laptop? Some manufacturers will ship you a set of CDs/DVDs to replace the ones that were shipped with the new computer.

5520 acer

laptops don't come with disc's these days (cheap scates) you normally have to make the recovery disc's when you first use the laptop,if the laptop is dead on arrival, as yours is, talk to the people you purchased it off, as it will be covered by a warranty,

when you boot up, look on the screen for the keyboard key, you need to push, to go into restoring the laptop to factory settings, sometimes (F11),but i think you should talk to the supplier of the laptop first.

good luck
