Try loging in with Administrator or similar debends on your os language.

use no password.

If you are unable to get in. And you don't want to do a fresh install we are going to have to do a workaround here.

If you,ve recently re-installed the software. this could be A Virus.
On booting try hitting F2 several times, which should let you into the bios screen.this will give you access to the bios setup. only attempt to edit-change or remove the password from there. ** Don,t mess with other settings** unless your sure of what youre doing. if there is no password set. then it,s hard-drive password related. and possible infection.
if you have anti-virus software on CD/DVD. and can access the Bios F2. you can change the device boot sequence. get the CD drive to be first-boot. then put the anti-virus software disk into the cd drive. reboot and this will be the first device the laptop will boot to.
If all else fails, it,s the daunting task of removing the CMOS battery, from the motherboard for 10 minutes, so the laptop should default back to original factory default settings.
hope this is of help to you.
regards mike @ Compurepair.

I turn my acer aspire 5315 on and its asking for me to enter current password but i dont know it and dont know how to get past it what do i do ?


if the password comes up straight away on the laptop and its on a black screen, its a bios password and will be expensive to remove,
only cheap method to try is if the laptop has a internal lithium battery, remove it for a minute then put it back in.
if its a windows password let me know there alot easier to remove.

Forgotten password


Hello:

If you want to restore your laptop to factory setting: You should insert your "recovery disk to the CD/DVD ROM. and then shutdown the laptop.

Now; boot your laptop using the recovery disk(boot the laptop from CD/DVD rom) This will no need to input the password: its either you have to restore the system without deleting the existing files or you have to partition and format the hard drive. formatting hard drive you will end up with fresh copy of system files. same as first day when you purchase the laptop.

be sure to install the driver if there's any.

However; if you tend to do by supplying the password. iguess all factory installation has no password. you have to strike the enter without supplying any password.

may this help,
