Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
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.

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.
