Most of the time, the bios password can not be reset unless you pull out the CMOS battery and do a reset switch.
Shortly, you will need to bring it to someone if you aren't comfortable opening the laptop. If you are comfortable, open it up, remove all the screws and pieces and then when you get to the motherboard (big green thing with a bunch of electronic looking things soldered to it), find a battery that looks like a watch battery. Carefully remove it and let it sit for at least 24 hours (with no other power sources connected) and that should clear it out.

    Ok, thank you for your time. I know a little about the computer field but this toshiba can actually boot up without the c-mos battery being in the computer at all and it's been out for about 16 hours now

Many do not allow cancellation as they provided the content and processed the transaction. You can call the company and plead with them to refund it but they may not be willing to help. A friend just got hit with well over $100 because their son ordered Sponge Bob without permission. Gotta keep the kids out of the technology if it has purchase and billing capabilities, they can be dangerous! :)

You could send an email to your email provider telling them the story and ask them to send your login information to you at another email. Either a free one that you create, or your wife's, friends, etc. Normally your can contact providers from there homepage and then you select contact us. Sometimes its hard to find it could be small on the page somewhere.

Hi Sue
Kids are great aren't they? The magic combo you are looking for is alt and f10 (thats the f10 key - not f, 1 and 0). You need to press down the alt key and f10 simultaneously while the ACER screen is up.

The manual for your laptop can be found at this link. http://www.scribd.com/doc/2505575/Acer-Aspire-Laptop-manual

The instructions for the recovery are located on page 25. There is also a notice there that disk to disk recovery must be enabled in the bios for it work. The instructions are there to verify if this is so. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
