Is this an actual problem?  If you open it up at home, you'll contaminate it and head crashes and overheating will occur...

Create a Windows 7 Password Reset Disk to Reset Windows 7 Password Easily


More and more people today tend to forget or lose their Windows 7 password under such a high-pressure society. Then what would you do to handle with that should you experienced the same trouble? Actually, all you need is only a "password reset" disk. A Windows 7 password reset disk could help you to reset Windows 7 password and regain access to your locked Win 7 PC. Here we will share two methods to create such a disk with you. So let's roll it.

Method 1: Through Windows 7 operating system

Requirement:
1. Be able to log on Win 7 operating system with the password
2. A USB flash drive is required

Windows 7 was designed to be able to create Windows 7 password reset disk without any other third party tools. So if you forgot the password for your user account and was unable to log on, then you could use the disk to reset Windows 7 password. Now you could follow these simple steps to create one.

Step 1: Start your computer and log on Win 7 operating system
Step 2: Insert an USB flash drive into your computer
Step 3: Click Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Accounts -> Create a password reset disk
Step 4: You will see the welcome screen. Click Next
Step 5: Select your USB flash drive. Click Next
Step 6: Type the login password in the password field. Click Next (now Windows 7 operating system should automatically create the disk for you)
Step 7: When the processes finish, Click Finish to exit

Now you have successfully created a Windows 7 password reset disk. And you will be able to use this disk to reset Windows 7 login password by following the whole processes of Windows 7 password recovery if you forgot Windows 7 password.

Note: One disk can only work for one account. You could not use this disk to reset the password of another user account.

Method 2: Try Windows 7 password reset software

Requirement:
1. An available computer with a CD/DVD burner
2. Windows password recovery software
3. A blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive

There is plenty of third party Windows password recovery software on the Internet. All of them were designed to create a Windows password reset disk. If you forgot to create a Windows 7 password reset disk when running Win 7 operating system before losing your password, then you may have a try on this method. The benefit of this method is that you could create the disk any time and do not need to know the Windows 7 password. Here we highly recommend Windows Login Recovery and will take it as an example to explain the procedures.

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery and install it onto an available computer
Step 2: Run the software and use it to burn a Windows 7 password reset disk (you could burn the file onto a blank CD/DVD or an USB flash drive)
Step 3: Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the optical drive
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and reset Windows 7 password

If you do not think these steps are distinct enough, you could also view the detailed user guide at recover the forgotten Windows password. By the way, the disc created through this way can reset the password of all the accounts instead of only one account.

Forgetting Windows 7 password is really a problem. But now you needn't worry about that any more. You could easily reset Windows 7 password with your Windows 7 password reset disk in the future.

Data Device (USB, disc drive, etc) locking up


You're missing important Windows files. To catch which ones download and run a program called Dial-a-fix. You'll need to keep your original Operating system disk at hand because if the missing files are found Windows will ask for this disk. Also, after that you can run SFC /scannow at the run prompt.

Good Luck

Optical Drive Device Locked Acer e lock activated. I cannot use my Cd drive.


Acer eLock Management
Acer eLock Management is a security utility that allows you to lock your removable data, optical and floppy
drives to ensure that data cannot be stolen while your notebook is unattended.

Removable data devices - includes USB disk drives, USB pen drives, USB flash drives, USB MP3 drives,
USB memory card readers, IEEE 1394 disk drives and any other removable disk drives that can be
mounted as a file system when plugged into the system.

Optical drive devices - includes any kind of CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives.
�� Floppy disk drives - 3.5-inch disks only.
�� Interfaces - includes serial ports, parallel port, infrared (IR), and Bluetooth.
To activate Acer eLock Management, a password must be set first. Once set, you can apply locks to any of the
devices. Lock(s) will immediately be set without any reboot necessary, and will remain locked after rebooting,
until unlocked.

You can try this:

You can reset the system to its default settings (all devices unlocked) by removing the password (leave the password fields blank when changing the password).

You also may be able to simply uninstall the e-lock software in add remove programs.

Is there an icon in your system tray that may allow you to disable e-lock?

Hi ! Ive got Packard Bell Notebook EasyNote GN45 ! I would like to put in bigger hard drive , but i cant take out old one ! Can u tell me how to do this ?


You should an anti static strap. It's available at any hardware store. First turn off unit. Unplug the ac adaptor.

Perform the following steps to remove the battery:
1. Make sure the power is off.
2. Turn the unit upside down.
3. Unlock the left battery lock.
4. Push battery lock on right outward to the release the battery.
5. Slide the battery out.

Now's the time for the strap. In lieu of that touch an unpainted metal part of the case and try to maintain contact. If you lose contact just touch again.

To remove the hard disk drive, then perform the following steps:

1. Remove the screws on the hard disk drive cover and carefully open it.
Cover is on the corner. ( 1" x 3")
2.
Pull out the hard disk drive using the plastic tab.
3. Remove the two screws on both sides of the hard disk drive shield.

That's all there is. Easy right? If you don't have an anti static bag wrap it in some bubble wrap to keep it safe.

Just reverse to put in new hard drive. If this helped you please rate a big 4 fix ya. Thanks. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll get right back to you.

Acer e lock activated??????????????


I have a working workaround solution to this problem - save yourself 100usd (what acer requests from the unlocking) and press the ask me button to send me the free(FREE POST TO FORUM) request, Il give you the workaround, will take less than 10 minutes to solve the problem, really not worth it to pay 100usd for something this silly.

Il possibly soon make a video tutorial on how its done but for now, send me a request and il tell you how to get rid of the problem.
