Go to this site: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/passrecovery.htm. Pick one of the recovery tools and download. One of the first two would be preferable to the following method. You will need to burn this to a cd, then copy the contents of the cd to a bootable usb flash drive. The notebook should have the ability to boot from one of these. You will need to change the start up settings in the bios to boot to the flash drive first. Run the utility that boots up from the flash drive. (This is your cheapest option). Your other option is go pick up a cheap external optical drive and run the recovery tool above from it. Again you will have to change the boot settings.

I'm using acer aspire one happy with windows 7 starter edition and i can't change my background. what am i going to do?


You're stuck. If my memory serves me correctly, the starter edition does not have the functionality to change the background. It's a very slimed down version of Windows & and does not have all the bells and whistles.

To reinstall you need an external DVDROM drive and run directly the windows 7 installer as boot up disk. Because it need to run alone as boot up disk and surely it will not run when you just copy the files to external HDD.
