Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop
I GOT A LAP TOP AT A PAWNSHOP REALY CHEAP CAUSE NO ONE KNEW THE PASSWORD FOR THE LOGIN USER AND IT SHOWS ME THE PASS WORD HINT PLEASE HELP
I have the same problem. My mother got me a laptop from a friend who had got a new one. The only problem is -- nobody knows the Windows password to get in. How can I reset this password? Any help would be appreciated =]
Get/make/ hack the administrator password.
There are several ways.
For the first one above, you need windows cd (I assume yours is windows xp). You can borrow to somebody who has it.

Hey Amanda - Are we talking about the Windows password? I'll tell you what to do. If it's something else just let me know.
1)Boot the pc and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key. This will take you to a boot option menu.
2)Choose safe mode and hit enter.
3)After you get the welcome to windows screen, you should get a screen with a user account name and a administrator account.
4)90% of Administrator accounts aren't password protected in Windows so choose Administrator and hopefully it will booy into safe mode.
5)Once in Safe Mode, click on Start>control panel (may have to double click)>user accounts.
6)Once there, first create a user account for yourself and make sure you click on computer administrator. (you need this to install software and other things). This is a must!!!
7)If you create a password it will ask you for it everytime you start Windows. If you want, there is a tool on the left, prevent a lost password that creates a disk to get you in if you forget your password.
8)Reboot your pc. After the Welcome screen there will be two accounts. The old one and yours. Choose yours.
9)Once it,s done booting, Choose Start>control panel>user accounts. Then just delete the other account. You'll be left with just your account(remember - Computer Administrator)
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate it yet, and just add a comment letting me know what happened. If you need any further help with this just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

You need to get the password!
Get them to unlock / give you the password. This can be more serious than expected.
