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.

I have forgotten my email address how do I find it


Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.

For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.

Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.

If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.

Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.

Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.

The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.

If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.

Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.

Click on "I can't access my account."

Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.

These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.

Yahoo will give you your user ID.

After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.

Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.

Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.

Click on "I have forgotten password"

Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.

If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.

Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.

Enter a new password.

Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."

Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."

If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.

Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.

Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.

Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

I forgot my Administrator Password,cuz I haven't had to use it for over a yr.It would just let me Login without it,but when I added a User Account---it started asking for it.Acer sent me 3 Disks.A System...


Assuming you have Windows XP or Vista. If there is another user account with administrator privileges you can log in at this account, and go through settings - control panel - user accounts in order to change the administrator's password.
If there isn't another user account with administrator privileges, you have to download the utility (in zip format) from this link. Extract it and burn the included iso at a cd. Boot the pc from the cd and follow the on screen steps in order to reset password.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

My wireless settings got changed and need to re configure


You need to make sure that the settings on you laptop match settings on your router. You can log in to your router by opening your browser (from computer connected to router) and type 192.168.1.1 in the address. If you haven't been in it before the user name should be "admin" and the password is "password". Look for the wireless section and write down setting and enter them in the config for the wireless on your laptop. If you have a friend that may be a little more experienced ask for help. Not to infer that you can't do it I just don't know your expertise.

Router set up


Hi you can find information about Belkin Routers at the following link:

http://www.sat.dundee.ac.uk/arb/belkinadsl/

There is a link from this page to a Belkin manual.

The default password for Belkin routers is blank.

If it has been set, you can remove the old one by resetting the router. push a paperclip into the reset hole at the back of the router.

I just brought a new everex 15.4 gbook and i need help setting it up i follow direction but when i enter my user name and password it always sayin wrong user name or pass word


Did you buy it from a store or a private individual? In either case, go back where you bought it and ask them what the user name and password is. Someone has apparently already installed a user name and password or you are mistyping what you enered during set up.
