No password to enter computer

I bought an Acer Aspire 9300 laptop on Ebay (sorry, it wasn't on the product list so I chose the 5100)... when I turn it on it asks for a password... the seller will not respond to my request for the password... I cannot access the computer without the password...HELP please.

    the screen that I am getting is before a username and password... I get the Acer screen (with 'Press F2 to Enter Setup) then a screen asking for a password...

    When I press F2 the page that comes up also asks for a password ... it says Phoenix TrustedCore (tm) Setup Utility at the top... sorry I don't know the OS but it said in the aution that it was Vista Premium

When the login screen comes up and asks for the username and password.
Username - Administraion
there should be no password for that account.
Once into the system go to the control panel and then to user accounts and change what you desire.

XP home hold F8 untill you get to the boot mode and choose Safe Mode once in to the system go to control panel and user accounts and do the same as above.
If this doesnt work please respond with OS.

What is the bios password for an acer aspire 5100


It sounds to me like it was set by someone other than yourself. There is no legal way to reset the BIOS password. You can contact the person who set it, call Acer for service, or if you bought this from someone, return it.
If you set it, try to remember what it was.

Acer Aspire 9300-3716 password


My advice to you is technical. You need to reset the CMOS on the motherboard internally. As for the password in vista unless you know it you will more than likely have to re-install vista or do a systme recovery by using the e-recovery partition that comes stock with ACER computers. I do not advise you to try resetting the cmos if your not technically capable

To list all of the specifications for your Aspire here would take too much space.
You can download the manual directly from Acer for your 5100 series notebook. The manual will provide you all of its specifications. (Click on the link to open Acer's web site);
http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012
Once the site opends click, Driver Download located at the left side.
Under, Select Product Family click Notebook. (Not Netbook)
In the next window click, Aspire.
In the third window scroll down & click on, Aspire 5100.
Click the Document button. Lastly, click on the white arror to download the manual. File named: AS5110_5100_3100-ENG-OLM_0616.zip

Acer aspire 9300 backdoor or bios password


Clear Password
PIN Pad: Bypassing Password Check, Keep shorting G3 (2 triangle pad) as above PIN pad and
then powering on the system will force the BIOS to clear Supervisor and User passwords. That
means both the power-on and setup passwords are all cleared.
