If you are able to boot into Windows, you can create a system recovery CD using the settings that your T160 had when it was shipped to you. Alternatively, you may just to reinstall all the applications and drivers your system was shipped with. You can find Acer's instructions on how to perform these tasks at the bottom of page 24 (page 15) of the following document: http://bit.ly/ftB7M2 (Create factory default image CD)

If you are unable to boot into Windows, you will have to contact Acer about getting a recovery CD. They may be able to provide you one for free if you are under warranty, otherwise you will have to pay.

My 13 year old son laptop need be reset like new


There are a couple possible solutions to your problem. If the computer will still turn on and load windows, and I assume you are using Windows XP, you can try doing a system restore. To do this, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and select System Restore. If system restore is enabled, you should be able to choose a date in the past when the laptop was working properly and restore the computer to that date. If you want to completely reload windows, you will need a Windows XP installation disc. Load the disc in the CD or DVD player and reboot the computer. You should see a screen asking you to press any key to boot from CD, go ahead and press Enter. You will now enter setup where you can reformat the hard drive and reload windows XP. Follow the on-screen instructions to delete any old partitions, and then create a new partition and format it using NTFS. The windows XP installation will continue after the hard drive is formatted. If, when you reboot the computer with the installation disc in the drive, you are not prompted to boot from CD, you may need to reboot and press F2 or F12 to change the boot selection to the CD or DVD drive so it will load the CD first before it tries to load your original Windows installation.

Need to bypass fingerprint and password on my sons laptop. He died in September and I want to be able to give the laptop to his sister. Can someone please help me!


I am sorry about the passing of your son.

The correct procedure here, is to take the laptop to a computer repair shop, that is an IBM/Lenova authorized repair shop.

They will ask for identification, and receipt of purchase. Then the authorized repair person will contact IBM/Lenova, fax the information above, and ask for a master password.

Once the master password is used, you will have access to the laptop once more.

Reason that this procedure is implemented is to deter thieves. Helps to keep them from accessing critical information, from the previous owner.

I haev an administrative account and a limitted account for my son. I forgot the password to the admin account so what should I do? i have restrictions on my sons so how can i get back into the admin...


This is for XP.....

Password reset on XP

1)
1. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)
2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.

7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start
copying files which can take several minutes.
8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”
9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.
10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the
security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.
11.
At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.
12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your
password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).

Random rebooting when connected to our wireless account


Possibly what you thought was a virus was actually early signs of this very instability. Back up everything you care about on that machine at once! Then run diagnostics (google some good download sites and do the downloads to a floppy or CD on the other machine). You are probably looking at buying a replacement (few eMachines are worth repairing)

I want to reboot my Toshiba A200 back to factory settings, i have a spyware down load **** that keeps on asking me to install.....how do i reboot


If you have the recovery CD, then put that in the drive, reboot the laptop and make sure you boot to the CD. The recovery process will start up and you can restore the laptop to it's factory settings. Make sure you have all of your documents, music, etc. backed up.
