Well, here is a tip from someone:

or, you can buy commercial software such as this:

I cannot personally vouch for either one, just some ideas. Google "reset admin password" for more ideas or similar software.

My son set administrator and user passwords on computer. Son has moved out, claims he cannot remember passwords. Computer is locked like a vault. How can I get in?


Restart your computer, first screen, hold down F8, a screen will pop up, select safe mode with the arrows and once that is done, you want to login as Administrator without a password and then hit ENTER. It will get into your computer in the safe mode and now you can go to the START menu n then to the CONTROL PANEL and go to user names and passwords and change your password

Son put a password and it doesn't unlock my


If you have any other users you can try to remove your son's password from the other user account. If you don't then you'll need a password reset boot disk.

My son has changed the password on my notbook,now i can log on.


You will have to setup a separate user account for your son to use. Do not make him an administrator. If he is signing on under your name he will always be able to change the password. (Change your password to one he doesn't know) then...

Go to:
Start menu - control panel - user accounts - manage another account-
create new account:

Make his account "standard"

Also Win 7 has an easy way to make a password reset disk (in case he sneaks pass your blocks). Look on the left side of the screen when in User accounts for this feature and follow instructions.

My son set a hard drive password on my laptop & forgot it.


With most of the Acer's you can get by this problem by removing the cmos / bios battery for a few minutes with the battery and power adapter unplugged.

This will clear the password.

Or you could just ask your son about the password, no?

My sons forgotten current password


try logging in with the built in admin account

user: admin
password: leave it blank or try password

if that works go to the control panel/users and reset his password there, log off the admin then youll be able to log back into your sons account

let me know, might have to run a tool to remove his password
