If this is an operating system password, enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8, log in as administrator, from here you can clear user passwords. If it's a bios password, then you will need to contact Acer support.

I forgot my password and i cant logon to my computer


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

How do i locate the hp probook 4520s BIOS password jumper on the motherboard


The 6930p uses the HP Sparekey method of password recovery. The owner sets a password and then completes hints to retrieve it in case it is lost.


They can also register the password with HP and upon providing proper proof of ownership, HP will provide the password the owner registered with HP.


So, if a person can't remember the password or the password hints, they can get it from HP.


If the password wasn't registered, or you are not the original owner, there is nothing you can do to retrieve the password, or clear it.


You will need a new motherboard, or you can strip the notebook for parts (except for the motherboard, which is useless as it is).


Last but not least you can install the Operating System again and this will by pass the Windows password. That would be my option instead of using the computer for a door jam or throwing it out. Just get a System restore disk or another Operating System disk upgrade to Win 7 good software for a laptop.

  • Hello cente_nkn, if by chance you didn't 'create a "Supervisor Password" to prevent anyone from changing the configurations in the BIOS / CMOS Setup? than we are 'OK!' Lets just say [No] for now.
  • Bootup / Start the computer, and follow these steps:
  • 1. When you hear the computer start-up, there will be a message that flashes very quickly at the bottom of the screen, it will read; Press F2 or F12 or on other "Computers, the 'Key Sequence may be [F11]..."
  • The area of your attention will be [F2] Key at the top of the keyboard. The F2 Key will open the CMOS / BIOS Setup. paul7of9_15.jpg
  • 2. Once this screen appear, you will see a 'Listing" of different set-ups. There will be instructions in the [right] Help ? area. You be using the "Arrow Keys" to (Select and Choose Items). In the first screen, there will be on the (right of the screen).
  • 3. Set Supervisor Password = This is the "Password Setting that will prevent anyone from getting into without authorization this area that you are in now, to "Change or Configure" CMOS or BIOS setting.
  • 4. Set User Password = This Password is use for "Logins / User Accounts...
  • You want to "Reset or Change the Supervisor Password.
  • Do so, and to finish; remember to use the [F10 Key] to 'Save the Changes.'

Thanks for using Fix' Ya, and I hope this fix it, paul7of9

If the cmos is password protected, then you must reset the cmos. The best way to remove any signs previous owners is to reformat or do a system restore. You ca do this with the disks that came with the computer, you should put the system restore disk in and be on your way. Just follow the on screen instructions and you should be all set.

Hope this helps
