Assuming this is after the computer boots

-Boot into safemode by pressing F8 before the Windows loading thing comes up.
-Login as Administrator
-Go into Control Panel-> Users
-Change the password of her account to <blank>
-Save and reboot

Assuming this is before the computer boots and the BIOS is not password protected
-Go into the bios and remove the startup password.

My girlfriend forgot her password to log in she tried doing the start in safe mode thing to recover info but she also passworded that.. told her to keep note book with info but she didnt.. how can she get...

We'll hope she hasn't entered a BIOS password...seems doubtful. On a differerent computer. you can find a download site where you can obtain the Geek Squad MRI disc, burn it and boot her computer from that CD. In the password section you can activate Samurai Password program and it will erase the passwords and she can start over.

Power On Password

dear mewla

you canb tray this

It's a laptop. Unless it is 4 or 5 years old it will not have a jumper on the motherboard.

You can remove the bios battery and let you know what freeze over and it will not do anything. The bios password has been stored in a security chip. Doesn't need a battery.

If the dang thing will not access the floppy until the bios password is entered, nothin you stick in that hole will work.

Some laptops can be reset with a donggle. If it is available it can be gotten on ebay. I know the toshiba is one.

Some times you can use the back door passwords and get lucky.

Otherwise you will have to contact acer and be prepaired to send it in or provide them with proof of purchase.

Good Luck

Trying to reset Bios Password

Have you tried not typing in a password?

Something must have changed...either you installed some software and it changed your ntldr file...or you removed a shared file.
If the computer was given to you..and there's nothing on it that you need...I suggest doing a clean install...wipe everything out and start from scratch.
This way, you have the computer set up the way YOU want it..

If there are no important files that you need...a clean install sometimes is the best avenue of does take time to install (an hour or so)...but Acer has all the drivers for your computer and you can get it back up and running clean if need be..
