Hopefully you have more than one account with administrative privileges on your computer. Then this should help:

Turn your computer on, and press F8 until you see the startup menu. Use the up/down arrows to select Safe Mode, and hit enter. Press enter again on Windows (whatever your operating system is).

1. Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools.
2. Click Computer Management.
3. Double click Local Users and Groups, double click the folder Users.
4. Right click on the account name that is locked out, and click on Set Password.
5. You may get a warning message about changing the password, simply click proceed.
6. Leave the New Password box blank, also leave the Confirm Password box blank.
7. Click OK, and OK again.
8. Then close all Windows, reboot the system and try to log in.

Forgot hp password default keyring


What is keyring ? and which operating system ??
Are you completely locked out of your computer ?
A locked computer can result in dead end frustration, potentially costing hundreds of dollars in repair bills.
Unlock your computer without the aid of a password reset disk by accessing the default Administrator account from Safe Mode and unlocking your computer via console commands.
This can generally be done in minutes.

Restart the computer.
Press and hold down the "F8" key as the computer is booting.
Release "F8" when a list of options appears and select "Safe Mode With Networking" from the list.


Click on the "Administrator" account.
Press the Start button on the lower left-hand side of the screen.
Type "control userpasswords2" in the text field that appears and press "Enter."
Uncheck "Users must enter a username and password" and restart the computer.
It will be unlocked.

If this does not resolve the situation, press the Start button and chose Control Panel from the menu that appears.
Click the arrow in the Control Panel to bring down a drop-down box and choose "All Control Panel Items."
Navigate to "User Accounts" and then "Manage Another Account."
Choose your account and select the option to edit it.
Select "Remove the password."
Repeat for every account accessible through the Control Panel.

Optical Drive Device Locked Acer e lock activated. I cannot use my Cd drive.


Acer eLock Management
Acer eLock Management is a security utility that allows you to lock your removable data, optical and floppy
drives to ensure that data cannot be stolen while your notebook is unattended.

Removable data devices - includes USB disk drives, USB pen drives, USB flash drives, USB MP3 drives,
USB memory card readers, IEEE 1394 disk drives and any other removable disk drives that can be
mounted as a file system when plugged into the system.

Optical drive devices - includes any kind of CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives.
�� Floppy disk drives - 3.5-inch disks only.
�� Interfaces - includes serial ports, parallel port, infrared (IR), and Bluetooth.
To activate Acer eLock Management, a password must be set first. Once set, you can apply locks to any of the
devices. Lock(s) will immediately be set without any reboot necessary, and will remain locked after rebooting,
until unlocked.

You can try this:

You can reset the system to its default settings (all devices unlocked) by removing the password (leave the password fields blank when changing the password).

You also may be able to simply uninstall the e-lock software in add remove programs.

Is there an icon in your system tray that may allow you to disable e-lock?

I just purchased a compaq notebook lap top i locked it and now dont know how to unlock it Help !!!!


Hi lenise,

Have you locked your laptop through the user account or from the BIOS password protection?

Which operating system is this? XP or Vista?

If its the user account, then is it the administrator?
If yes, then you can change the admin password with a security hole in XP ( Windows installation disk would be required).

Visit the following link on how to do it!
