How do i bypass putting in a password to activate the sound on an acer desktop computer?


you should not have to put in a password to unlock the sound. not even sure how that is possible unless this is an old corporation's computer. if it is you need to have the Operating system wiped clean and re-imaged. at that point you shouldn't have any more issues with having to put a password in to enable sound.

How do I unlock my macbook,I forgot my password


  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  3. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.

Cannot log on


If you don't know the username OR passwords to get on the corporate laptop, download a software called Ophtcrack (sp?).  It will give you all logon passwords and usernames for the laptop.

Also another possibility is to load one of the graphical Linux OS's available on the market.  Load the new OS on a cd, they press F12 to enter into the boot device menu, and select CD drive.  You might want to try Umbuntu (Windows-like Linux OS)

Good luck!
