I need to know how to get the administrative password for my acer aspire one mini laptop

Depending on the OS you can Ctrl + Alt + Delete and it would change to a screen that you can enter a user name and password.
Enter the username "Administrator" and leave the password blank or try "admin" or "administrator"
If your able to login with those details you can go to
Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Local Users and groups (On the left) > Users > and then right click the username you forgot the password for and click "Set Password"

How can i unlock my laptop if i forgot my password?

To prevent that Windows provides an option for Password Reset. Go into the user settings and create a password reset disk. With this, if you forget your password, you can easily reset it.

Reset passwords

Try booting to safe mode. Press f8 upon powering the computer. It will bring you to a screen of startup options. Select safe mode. When it reaches the login screen, the administrator account will be visible as well as the other account you need the password for. Hopefully there is no password for administrator. Try logging in to the administrator account with no password. If this works, then you are lucky. You can now go into control panel, user accounts and select the user account that has the new password. You can then change the password to a new one.

Hopefully this works for you.
