Does the password come up instantly when the power is turned on or does the laptop load windows and then ask for your password?

If it loads windows, press F8 repeatedly while the computer is starting up, before the windows logo comes. Select safe mode from the list.

When the safemode loads, you will be presented with a Administrator user account, (XP and older) click on the administrator to sign in, if you haven't set a password to it you will be able to sign in and remove or change the forgotten password on your user account - start - control panel - user accounts.

If you have a password prompt that comes up instantly when the power is pressed on, there are few possible ways to get rid of it, The best being contacting your dealer or acer directly for the service.

If you are outside of warranty and you are willing to open up the machine, disconnect the bios battery for 20 minutes and place it back in, try starting up, some laptops may have a small switch to remove the password but it is very rare.

Because we can not never confirm that you are the owner of this laptop I will not give you further instructions, theres noting you can do to proof that your the owner of the laptop so please take it to acer or a local professional to get it removed.

Thanks

Depending on the laptop, you can sometimes just remove the cmos battery, and it will clear that password. The battery might be accessable by removing one of the cover panels on the bottom of the laptop. You need to unplug the power, remove the battery, and then open the panels and see if you see a small battery, or set of batteries plugged in. If so unplug them, let the computer sit for several minutes unplugged, and then put it back together.

Some laptops have the password stored on a special chip that doesnt lose the info by reseting the bios as described above. If this is the case you dont have much of a chance of getting around it.

Hello. My Acer laptop is locked and states that only an administrator can get in?


Try logging in with your own username and password. If not try 'Administrator" and leave the password blank. If that doesnt work and you dont know any other usernames or passwords you'll need to bring the laptop to a repair centre and have them use a special disk to access the administrator password. Every copy of Windows origonally has an Administrator account, if you dont know its details then you need to get the password reset.
