How do I get my acer 5733-6838 original password?


When you are asking about circumventing the BIOS password on a laptop computer, it sounds like you are asking about a stolen computer. If you can provide the serial number and your name and address, I will confirm with Acer whether there is a record of the laptop having been stolen. If it isn't, then I can mail you a solution to the address you provide.

My Dell vastro Laptop is stolen and i dont know the MAC Address of it so that i can trace it... Plz help me finding my lappy's MAC address... I have its serial no. And also its saved as a paired...


My my that is a terrible thing to happen, the only thing I can suggest is report it stolen give the serial and information to the police more than likely I hate to say this you may have to write this laptop off and purchase another one. Tracking them is difficult once they are out of your possession. Regardless if you had the MAC address even.
If you report it stolen if the police find stolen items they can track a recovery by identifying its serial number. So doing a report would and possibly beat a blank and who knows you may be surprised one day when you get a call is this your laptop? I hope this happens for you but it will not if you do not report it and register it with the police as stolen.
Sorry for your loss really.......John

Need to unlock gateway 7330GZ hdd


So who put the password on it? 99% of the time if there is a Hard Drive Password and the person in possession of the laptop don't know the password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner put the password lock on the hard drive to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have set the password remotely once the laptop was stolen. Your system is toast. The only remedy is to get the original owner to remove the password.

What is the built in hdd pass word


Hard Drives do not have a built in password. Hard drives are password protected by the original owner to keep thieves from getting into sensitive data. If your hard drive has a password on it and you don't know the password, then 99% of the time it means you have a stolen laptop. The original owner might have always had it password locked on the hard drive or once it was stolen they may have had the ability to lock it remotely. The only way you'll be able to use that laptop is to get the original owner to key in and remove the password from the hard drive or purchase another hard drive and get it installed, load the operating system, load the drivers, load the application programs.

How do I find my product registration. my laptop was stolen and I need the serial number


If you have the original box in which your Laptop was sold to you, there are several barcoded and worded labels - At least one of these will show the manufacturer, model details AND the serial number of the Laptop that was sold in that box.
Hope you still have the box.
A useful hint, for your next computer - if you download Belarc Advisor (usually available on Majorgeeks.com) and run it on your new machine, it will give you FULL details of the Unit/Motherboard and all installed program serial numbers - so in the event the Police 'find' it you can prove that you own it... Just print out the details when it is finished.
