u need to replace the memory.......open the memory dock at the bottom end of the notebook....have the battery and ac power removed......if there is 2 memory modules....remove 1 at a time reboot the system to check which 1 is giving you trouble....
if there is only 1 memory module ull need to change this
first off, is this a laptop you bought brand new? if so it should have a current OS on it, im thinking Vista, in this case you are going to have a problem removing it if you want to use XP or Linux. But you can use the Virtual PC program to run any other OS you want without having to remove Vista.
I probably meant to say "reseat" the memory. Just remove the memory module(s) and reinsert them in their slots. This problem can also sometimes be resolved by reseating the hard drive. I had this happen to me just the other night. The laptop slid off of my lap and fell to the floor. Just fell about a foot and a half, and didn't hit all that hard. Kinda partially caught it as it went. But the laptop didn't like it and I had a message of "Operating system not found". Reseating the hard drive had me up and running in about 30 seconds. Ron-
if you mean your windows log on password, you need to boot up (F8)in safe mode and log onto windows as administartor and then go to control panel>users and change your account password or delete it.
If you mean system/bios password you have to locate the cmos CR2032 battery on the motherboard and remove it for 10 mins or so and replace to clear the bios memory.
If it's the standard Acer bios password it's normally 0000
