Did you use another account name when you set up the password or did you just use the "Administrator" account? If you used something else type that in the first box where it probably says Administrator.

Always first check to see if your CAPS lock light and or your Number lock lights are on. Try your password again with the CAPS off and on the numlock on. If that doesn't work you may have had those buttons on or off when you originally typed in the password so try it in different ways also.

Breaking a pasword in XP is possible with the right software but not easy.

Reset password


Windows operating systems allow you to set up an administrator password, which prevents unauthorized users from downloading applications and making system changes without your permission.

If you have forgotten your administrator password, you can reset it easily and create a new one that you can use to log into Windows.

Since Acer Aspire computers use Windows operating systems, resetting your password is a simple process you can accomplish in minutes.

Restart the Acer Aspire.
When Windows boots up, select the username you want to reset the password for and press "Enter."


Click "Use your password reset disk" to launch the password reset wizard. The password reset wizard enables you to create a new password for your user account.

Click "Next" on the password reset wizard and insert the password reset disk.
Click "Next."

Type your new password in the "Type a new password" box and type the password again in the confirmation box.

Type a hint to you use in case you forget your password next time.
Click "Finish" to activate your new password.

Restart your computer and log on to Windows using your new password.

Forgot password for Thunderbird


The Acer 5050 computer runs on the Microsoft Windows XP operating system. Those who use Microsoft Windows are required to create a password when setting up the computer. If you fear the password was compromised or simply want to change the password, you can reset it and create a new password. Resetting the password on an Acer 5050 takes only a few moments to complete. You must be logged in as the system administrator to reset the password.

Click "Start" and then click "Run." Type "userpasswords2" and click "OK." Click the "Users" tab and click to select the user you want to change the password for. Click "Reset Password." Type a new password into the "New Password" box and type it again in the "Confirm New Password" box. Click "OK" and restart the computer. The password is now reset.

You cannot log into your accounts? Try going into the one account you can log into, and removing the passwords from the other accounts in the "Control Panel"

For windows Xp Try
  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the User Accounts link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, double-click on the User Accounts icon.
  3. In the pick an account to change area of the User Accounts window, click on your Windows XP user name.
  4. Choose the Remove my password link.
  5. In the text box on the next screen, enter your current password.
  6. Click the Remove Password button to confirm that you'd like to remove your account password.
  7. You can now close the User Accounts window and the Control Panel window.
  8. Now that your Windows XP account password has been deleted, you will no longer need to log on to Windows XP when your computer starts. Windows will now load all the way to your desktop automatically.

Hi, If you want to share files on both computers, you need to check the shared folders option on both version of the operating system. You can right-click on the folder you want to share then choose properties and choose shared option to check both settings. On windows 7, you have to go to Network and Sharing Center to check the setting on your option. you have to to turn on the sharing options and also if there is a password on both computer when you log on , that would be the username and password you need to share the documents.

I cannot remember my login and password. The computer has not been used for several years. How do I by pass the ogin screen or change my login and password?


I believe your computer has windows XP on it? if y\it is XP on it upon powering your system keep on tapping F8 until you get to windows advance menu then select safe mode it should log into win xp select the administrator account, once logged in as administrator go to control panel in xp select users icon then in users icon click on manage accounts then select the your log in Icon which you forgot the password then click on change password........ this should help you log back in your computer, but if you don't have any files that need to be backed up on that computer I suggest that you reformat instead to make sure that windows will run perfectly fine when you use it, but if you don't have a windows installer and you are successful in changing the password I suggest that you clean up the system by doing a disc clean up on it and a defragmentation on the Hard drive

HOW DO I REMOVE THE GUEST ADMINISTRATOR WITHOUT BEING AN ADMINISTRATOR ON MY COMPUTER SO I CAN DOWNLOAD THINGS ON MY COMPUTER


You question is not that specific so i can't give you the specific answer, there're several ways to configure this settings, but it depends on the Operating system you are using. If you are using windows Xp, log off from the desktop and press Ctrl+Alt+Del simultaneously on the login screen (sometimes you'll need to press several times), a small logon window will pop up, type administrator on the username box and if a password was set with the administrator, key in the password, or if there's none, just press enter after typing the "administrator". After you are logged in with the administrator account, go to control panel - user account - create new - and create an account (any username that you want to give) with the administrator privilege (rights) {you should select Computer Administrator}. Again log off and login using the new username and password (if you've set a password). Now with that account, you can do anything with your computer. If it's not Xp then the problem is difficult being without the administrator's rights. If you have another account with administrator's rights, then you can disable the Guest account. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.
