Take it to the customer care centre. they will open it and there is always a cell on the motherboard, they will remove it and will place it back, this will reset / finish all the passwords on the pc. but dont try to open it at home as laptop is very delicate and u may not b able to close it back.

When i turn my d257 acer aspire one on it goes to blue screen asking for a password, or it either goes to a screen that says no boot disk


No Boot disk found - usually indicates the HDD is not located.
so you need to validate the HDD is inserted properly, and locked into the HDD slot. securely,
Blue Screen asking for password, could mean several things,
basically you need with both errors, take to a good Repair Tech and have this looked into... PASSWORD can be either for BIOs or HDD,
or the system went into LOCKED MODE and password is needed to UNLOCK it.

My lenovo R400 won't recognize my password when I'm trying to log in. How do I fix this?


Are you sure your password was with all lowercase letters? Are you sure that as you type each keystroke registers on the screen? Watch the screen as you type your password slowly and make sure it moves with each keystroke. A bad keyboard will cause a problem with your password. If all the above does not solve it turn off your computer, then turn it on and hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see an option that allows you to log into Safe Mode. Take the Safe Mode Option and when it boots up hopefully and depending on your operating system it will give you a log in for the Administrator and for the user which you forgot the password. Log in as the Administrator and hopefully you have not password protected it. Once you log in successfully go to Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Once you are in User Accounts, select the user account that you forgot the password for and select the option to Remove Password. Then restart your computer.

We use eee pc by acer, set up the password for the first time. now when i type the correct password, it won't accept it. I downloaded a file called InfraRecorderPortable_0.52.paf.exe, put it in a USB...


Okay, first the password problem. Passwords are almost always case-sensitive now, so make sure that your caps lock is in the same state it was in when you first set the password. I have seen it happen that someone will set the password while their caps lock is on, then when they try to log in later with the caps lock off, they get a wrong password error. More often, though, is the opposite. You set the password with the caps lock off, and are trying to log in with it on.

The second problem is a little more complicated. First of all, the file InfraRecorderPortable_0.52.paf.exe is an installation file, which means it won't do the CD burning as it is. If you want to use the portable version of that software (for example, you have a friend that doesn't have that program on their computer, and they don't want it installed, but you still want to use it)you'll have to run the program and when it asks where you want to install it, select your USB stick. It should be able to run from there without any other supporting programs.

My laptop turned off and now its asking for a primary user hdd password witch i dont have how do i unlock it?


You have to unlock the hard drive from within BIOS if you don't want to see that screen again. However, if you don't know that password then the laptop is not going to usable by you. Normally this prevents access to a computer in case someone steals it, since the thief won't know the hdd password and can't unlock it to access any data.

Format the disk to be BOOTABLE using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.
Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you’ll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you’re asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.
