Windows has two types of access, "user accounts" and "administrator accounts". If the password is for an "Administrator account" you will need to get one of those "password recovery" or "password reset" disks like this one (follow this link:)

or

If it's not an administrator password, you can select "Safe mode" from the boot menu and go in and create a new user or administrator account.

Acer aspire 5536 forgotten the HDD user password


Assuming that after you enter the wrong three times it should generate a lockout error. At this time you can follow these steps to unlock the system:


http://pcmediks.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-remove-hdd-user-password-in-acer.html



Basically, once you unlock it, you should be able to boot into the BIOS and disable the HDD password. I'd say to do that first but you would need the password once you were in the BIOS to be able to disable it thus the recommendation to essentially set it to something you know first via the guide above.

I have locked myself out of my new Acer Aspire 5332 laptop because I put in the wrong password. I had not made a password recovery disc.....HELP !!


Hi

Sorry about this, but forgotten password is an issue, Whats your operating system? usually when you put a password on, there will be options where you can put a hint just in case you forget. in any case you're still unable to remember your password. The only possible way is to perform a clean install of your operating system...

Good luck!

Hope it helps!

Forgotten hdd/bios password


The only way to reset the BIOS password is to find the jumper pins on the motherboard and set them to the clear state and remove the CMOS battery. It resets the CMOS to the default state.
Your best bet is to contact tech support and explain the situation to them

FORGOTTEN PASSWORD


you should be able to press F8 on start up, so as you are able to start in safe mode, the option will come up and highlight the line 'Start windows in safe mode' and press enter. When windows starts the icons will be larger than normal, so don't worry, but their will show your own account and an administrartor account, click on the administrator account and go to accounts and select the account that is passworded. You should then either be able to delete the password, change, or delete the account, when done, restart pc and it should be ok and back to normal
