Re: problem with the startup when turn it on

You mean a BIOS password? or a password on your Windows account.

In case of BIOS password: you need to reset the CMOS (Chip that holds data for BIOS). You can do this by removing the CMOS battery or use a reset switch/jumper on your motherboard. If this is the case tell me and I'll walk you through it.

In case of Windows: Boot until logon screen. If it's the blue welcome screen press Ctrl + Alt + Del 3 times until a small login box appears. Type the following:

Username: Administrator
Password: the password set at install, or is most case: leave blank.

Once logged in, go to Control Panel > User Accounts. Select your user and change the password.

I hope this helps solving your problem.

Put in windows disc. Make sure computer boots from disc drive. Do a startup repair in vista/7. In XP let the disc load then select REPAIR COMPUTER. It will go into recovery console. Type your password, select your drive, then type CHKDSK /R. Let it scan. Restart.

Forgot password


On the Thinkpad's, it's a fairly easy process to reset the passwords. Try the following steps and you should be able to access the computer...

1. Power off the lpatop.
2. Flip the laptop over and open the Memory cover. It should have the diagram of a Dimm on it.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Remove the jumper, or whatever you used to short the password pads and put the cover back on the bottom of the laptop.
5. Power on the laptop and you should be fine.

Enter password

To repair your computer using Startup Repair follow these steps:
  1. Boot into Vista installation DVD
  2. Choose your language settings and click Next
  3. Click Repair your computer
  4. Choose your operating system and click Next. This should bring up System Recovery Options.
  5. Click on Startup Repair
Startup Repair should now start diagnosing your system to identify the root cause of the failure. Once it has identified the root cause, it would automatically start repairing your computer. If you are curious to know what Startup Repair did, you can click on the details link and see which tests Startup Repair ran to diagnose the problem.
After Startup Repair has finished the repairs, click Finish to reboot your computer.
Your computer should now be able to boot normally into Vista!!
Note -- If your computer cannot boot into Vista even after repairs, then go back to System Recovery Options and run System Restore.
That's it! This is how you use Startup Repair for most unbootable situations.

Acer aspire 5050 asking for a password upon start up

If it is asking for a password upon startup then someone put a password on your CMOS. Unfortunately, unless you can find out what the password is, then the only way to clear it is to remove the battery in your motherboard. The battery is what keeps the information in CMOS when the computer is turned off.

Power up lock

Try starting in safe mode (F8 on startup)and select start windows in safe mode. If you can get in that way you may have to delete your account or open a new account in a different name, then change the settings to no password. If all else fails you will have to locate the cmos battery in your notebook and remove it for a few minutes then put it back in but it may be difficult to find.
