Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
There are two kinds of passwords: the BIOS password and the Windows password. The BIOS password is set from the BIOS, and your computer asks for it when you start your computer.
The Windows password is asked when you want to log on to your user account. It is also known as the Administrator password.
You mention that you have forgot the Administrator password; you can try the following methods for recovery:
If you have another user account, log in to it and then reset the password of your account. Go to control panel and select User Account. Select Manage another account option and then choose remove password.
Reinstalling Windows will also remove your password but it will also erase your data. See the next step if you have important data.
If you have only one user account then the procedure is more lengthy, however. The following steps explain how you can reset your password:
Download PCLoginNow (57MB) (click on the link and download free from from rapidshare)
Select next and then highlight your operating system with your mouse or arrow keys.
In step 2, select your user-name with the mouse and tick the "password is empty" check box (see below).
Select next. Your computer will now reboot and your password will be removed.
