You can try booting in the safemode to see whether the default administrator account is enabled. If it is there then log on to the administrator account and changed the password for the account.

If the administrator account is not enabled then you should have the Vista disc to do system restore. Boot the computer from the Windows VIsta disc.. when you see the setup screen look for Repair your computer link at the left bottom corner. Click that follow the instruction to do system restore.

IF you dont have the vista disc call you Acer support to find how to boot in to Win RE

Good luck

I cant remember my user password for my acer aspire one please help


If you have a Windows password reset disk, you can easily reset your Windows password with it. If not, you can follow the steps to create one. You just need an available computer linked to the Internet.

Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Breaker with the available computer.

Step 2: Run the program and burn a Windows password reset disk. It could be burned onto a CD/DVD OR USB flash drive.

Step 3: Turn to your locked computer, insert the newly created CD or USB to your drive. Reboot the Computer and reset the Windows password.

It is easy and safe.

I CANT GET INTO MY LAPTOP!!! HELP!!!


Most of the time the default windows installations leaves the Administrator account active with a blank password to back door for cases like these.

First try logging in using username ADMINISTRATOR and don't type anything for the password. Click ok to see if that gets you in. If it does then you can go to your account settings and change the password for your default account. If not there may still be other ways but this is typically the easiest.

My sons Aspire 5720 laptop


Well there are 2 ways that this may be rectified the easy way and the hard way , for the easy way to work lets just hope your son didnt change all the security

EASY WAY::
When the logon screen appears (where you select which user account you want to use)
HOLD Ctrl + ALT and press DELETE
this whill change the screen and a box will appear where you can type a use name and password
For the username enter Administrator and leave the password balnk, hit enter and hope it works.. If it does go to the control panel and delete the administrator account he creadted or just delete the password or change it.

If that Fails AND YOU HAVE ANOTHER ACCONT IN WHICH TO GAIN SYSTEM AXCESS Use SYSTEM RESTORE in in choose
Start all programs , axcessories , system tools , system restore
For Vista
Click start and in the Start search box type restore
scroll down the box that appers and click system restore, Restore the computer to a time in which you actually remeber the password before he changed it or before he made any changes..


HARD WAY::
If it didnt Prepare for the hard Way... :(

Yes, when you switch the laptop on hold down the F8 key until you see a black screen with a list of white text, one of the options will be "Safe Mode", use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode (just safe mode, not safe mode with anything) and press return. The computer will start to the welcome screen and you will see a user-name you don't normally see called "Administrator". Click on Administrator and you will find it is not password protected (in spite of the fact that the Administrator account has more access to the system than any other account!) when the administrator profile loads it will ask you if you want to continue in safe mode and you do. click start, click control panel and click on users and groups now click on your son's user account and click remove password. now click back, click on the Administrator account and click change password, the old password should be left blank and you're new Administrator password should be something at least 7 letters, numbers and special characters (!@£$%^&*) long that you can remember. Now just restart and let it start up normally, once loaded advise your son to set a password he can remember or at least write down somewhere safe.
