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 -> control panel -> users and select your account followed by clicking change password.

I hope this will solve your problem

Hi snowymountai...

Try this solution to your problem.
Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F1,F2 or F8" as the laptop computer starts.(Depending on your computer)
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

How can I password-protect all files on my laptop?


Hi there.
You can set a bios and hard drive password either by using Acer Empowering Technology application or entering the bios itself by restarting the computer and hit F2 while its just starting up, make sure you keep your password safe because if you forget the the passwords you may find yourself locked out of your own computer and bios passwords are very hard to crack.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Restart pc but as its starting up keep pressing F8 to get you into safe mode, choose start windows in safe mode then you will get a large iconed desktop with your account and an administrator account.

Click on the admin account then go to control panel>users, then go to your own account, choose change an account, then choose delete password.

Restart pc then you will boot straight into windows
