If u don't know the password for the hard drive, u won;t be able to use it !!! U can try to mount that drive to another laptop/computer and than force it to lose the password encryption (u'll need special software and advanced knoledge...). The other option is to send it to the producer (acer) and let them do the job.(expensive !!!)
As for the password that is requested when u press F2, is the BIOS password, and u can get ride of it easily by reseting the BIOS.(u should find info for this in the computers manual)(note: this involves opening the computer case ...)

And ofecourse there is the option where u can try all posible combinations for the password .. it shold take just 2000 years ... lol

My acer aspire 5515 laptop runs real slow its only 1mo. old


Yes, you can safely uninstall the acer game zone.

You should defragment the hard drive with Defraggler (http://www.filehippo.com/download_defraggler/)
and clean temporary files with CCleaner (http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/) and eventually scan for spyware with Ad-Aware or Spybot, oh, and also a full system virus scan wouldn't hurt either.

You could also disable some programs which load at startup via Start -> Run -> type "msconfig" (without the quotes) -> Startup and disable not needed items.
