Re: Forgot password on acer Travelmate 2480

As this laptop could also be stolen I would suggest you go to a service center. The other way is to open it up and locate the bios battery and disconnect it for 30 minutes or so.

My PC is Acer travelmate 2480. i forgot the password. how to fix it?? plis tell me

This is worth a try:
Boot up the notebook and immediately hit the F8 key until you see the menu option to boot in Safe Mode. Choose Safe Mode from the menu.

Once the system finishes You will be given a choice of Yes to enter Safe Mode, and No to enter System Restore Mode Choose YES

Hopefully there will be no password on the Adminstrator account and you will be able to log on as administrator.

Once logged in, go to Control Panel, User Accounts and create a new user account with administrator privlidges.

After creating this account you will be able to boot the normal way and log on to the new account.

TravelMate 2480 Password to LogIN?

You might boot up your computer and start pressing the f8 button for a couple of times. It now boot in Safe Mode and you will see some strange information running by your monitor.

After that there will appear a login screen that requests a username and password.

Try to fill in the username as administrator and leave the password area blank.

You might be able to log on to your system now and than you can change the password of your regular account by browsing to start -> configuration -> users and select your account followed by clicking change password.

I hope this will solve your problem
