I bet there's a default password, perhaps set at the factory by Acer or the seller (see your invoice), or to the username. It should be noted that your OS is asking you for a password, making it kind of an OS or maker-specific issue, not so general.

I'm not sure any modern OS lets you create a null or weak password either. Make a nice secure one once you log in. Your fingers can remember most of WEINTZL20451719querzintinocrantz for you after the first 2 times.

If you can't change the setting in the bios setup that means you have a bios supervisor password set. If you don't know the supervisor password you can reset the supervisor with Acer Bios Master Password from http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Acer_Bios.php for only $20

I have forgotten my password I cannot access my Acer computer


if i remember right, if you start in safe mode (start tapping F8 after you press the power button to turn it on) and log in as administrator you can go into user accounts in the control panel and remove the password from your user account

Password recovery


If the password window has come for first time then don't enter any password. Leave the password window blank. In the user name enter Administrator and log on. If this does not help enter administrator or admin in password field. But this should be second option.

My suggestion is that you downgrade from Window Vista to Window XP as till date Windows Vista has lot of bugs relating to security issues.I myself have done that.
