Hello, If you cannot log on to Windows by using a particular user account, but you can log on to another account that has administrative credentials, follow these steps on how to do the trick: 1. Log on to Windows by using an administrator account that has a password that you remember. You may need to start Windows in safe mode (Which is pressing F8 at boot up).
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open box, type "control userpasswords2?, and then click OK.
4. Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
5. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.

I accidentally locked myself out of my acer (nav50) notebook, is there a way I cn restore my notebook back to factory settings and remove previous password?

You can first go and remove the CMOS battery it is located under the lap top you will have to unscrew some plates and find it. It is a small round battery also you can re-install the complete Operating System using the restore disc that came with your computer this is the last resort. When you remove the battery and leave it out for about 20 seconds it will reset the CMOS to default settings.
If you remove the base plastic cover to expose the memory ect.. All you have to do is locate the wifi card then remove it (very easy) you will then see the system board battery. Now place a flat screwdriver so that it touches both of the wires going to the system board from the battery. Do not do it for a long period of time. Touch it and leave it go and place it back together and off you go.

If this does not work you can go online and get the Acer Aspire Notebook default passwords that often work as well to reset it. Most factory settings use these default passwords when they run into this type of situation. Also if nothing I suggest works then just do a complete install and do not add a password again or if you do remember it.
I hope that this helps you out a bit. John

I have locked myself out of my new Acer Aspire 5332 laptop because I put in the wrong password. I had not made a password recovery disc.....HELP !!


Sorry about this, but forgotten password is an issue, Whats your operating system? usually when you put a password on, there will be options where you can put a hint just in case you forget. in any case you're still unable to remember your password. The only possible way is to perform a clean install of your operating system...

Good luck!

Hope it helps!
