Tip

How to Reset an Password for Acer eRecovery


Acer eRecovery is a vendor-specific method you can use to restore your computer to its original factory settings, or to custom settings you create and store on your hard drive or other removable media. eRecovery also contains a back-up utility you can use to back up data to your hard drive or other removable media. Access to eRecovery requires you to use the default "000000"password or one you select. While it is important to store a custom password in a safe location, if you lose or forget it, there are steps you can take to reset your Acer eRecovery password.
Access the Diskpart command prompt. Acer stores custom eRecovery passwords on your computer in PQService, a hidden rescue partition. Locating this partition requires accessing the Diskpart utility from the command prompt. Diskpart allows you to run a scan on your hard drive and bring up hidden partitions.

02d2ca3.pngstep 1. To access Diskpart, go to "Start" and type "cmd" in the Search bar to bring up the black command prompt box, and then type "diskpart" at the prompt to switch to a Diskpart prompt. Depending on your computer, a new command prompt may open with the Diskpart prompt.
Step 2. Scan your computer configuration. At the Diskpart prompt, type "rescan" to run a system configuration check. When the scan finishes, you will receive a message informing you the scan is complete. At the command prompt, type "list disks" to bring up available disks and then type "select disk 0."
Step 3. Locate the hidden partition. At the command prompt, type "list partition" to view a list of partitions on your disk. Locate the partition with no name and a size of approximately 10 GB. At the command prompt, type "select partition (number)."
Step 4. Determine the partition type and unhide the partition. The hidden PQService partition will be either a type 27 or a type 12 partition. If the partition is type 27, unhide it by typing "set id=07 override," and if a type 12, then unhide it by typing "set id=0B" at the command prompt.
Step 5. View PQService partition. Return to the disk containing PQService by typing "select disk 0" at the command prompt, and then type "list volume" to view the contents of the disk. PQService will be visible in the list, preceded by a number. Type "select volume (number)" and then assign PQService a new drive letter so you will be able to open and view it from your computer interface window. At the command prompt, type "assign letter=f."
Reset eRecovery Password
Step 1. Open PQService. Navigate to the drive containing PQService. If you are using Windows XP, use My Computer; if you are using windows Vista, use Computer. Find the file "aimdrs.dat." Right click on the file and select "Open with" and then "Textpad," "Notepad," or whatever text editor you prefer.
Step 2. Open file and find password. Open the file with your text editor and locate the eRecovery password. Look for a line that reads, "Password=password name," "Hint=the password hint." Write down the password and close the file.
Step 3. Open eRecovery using the recovered password and follow instructions to create a new password.

F10+alt don't work to reset acer aspire one to factory setting. what else can i do


Hi twillis84.
You will need to start your computer in the "Safe Mode", you do this by tapping F8 while the computer is starting up.
Once the computer has started, select "Safe Mode" you have two choices.
I would try "A" first.
A...You can do a System Restore from here.
You will click "Start">All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore, this will restore your system to an earlier time when it was operating properly.
B...Once you are in the safe mode, then you will double left click on "Start">Control Panel>User Accounts>Change an Account.
Now you can change your password,delete the account,etc.

I want to reset it


Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

Acer 3630 has its own erecovery system to reset the computer to its default state. The erecovery password is 000000 BUT I CHANGED THE PASSWORD :-( I can't work out what it is, I've forgotten, and...


A virus shouldn't be eating space on your hard drive. If anything, a program might not be properly deleting temporary files when running. If you cant remember the password, you can try to find a restore iso on the internet that would suffice. Acer may even offer replacement discs which will have the same purpose.
