I need a reset password for my laptop acer travelMate 2423wxci


Hello, If you have a windows 7 password reset disk, you can follow the instructions below to recover the forgotten password.

1. If you enter the wrong password when you attempt to log on, Windows displays a message that the password is incorrect. Click OK to close the message.

2. Click Reset password, and then insert your windows password reset disk (or other removable media).

3. Follow the steps in the Password Reset Wizard to create a new password.

4. Log on with the new password. If you forget your password again, you can use the same password reset disk. You don't need to make a new one.


If you haven't created a windows 7 password reset disk before, you can use Spower Windows Password Reset (SWPR) to recover your forgotten password in few steps:



Step 1: Download and install Spower Windows Password Reset.

Step 2: Create a CD/DVD or USB password reset boot disk with SWPR.

Step 3: Boot your computer from password reset boot disk.

Step 4: Recover the forgotten password for administrator account.

I hope my answer can help you.

Forgot password, need to reset


You can reset any user password by logging in using the Administrator account through Safe Mode. In Windows XP Home you cannot log into the Administrator account in normal mode.
When your computer is starting up, hold down the F8 key. This will bring you to a black screen with white text. Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode" and then hit enter. This will boot the computer into Safe Mode, which will look normal except the resolution will be very low. Log in as the Administrator (should have a blank password). Once logged in, open the Control Panel, then User accounts, then reset the password or whatever user you want. Reboot the machine to get back into normal mode.
