Ive forgoten my login password and i dont have a reset disc how can i get back in to my acer aspire l100


I believe probably the easiest and safest way for you is remove your Windows OS Passwords with Windows Password Recovery tools. I found a good one at http://www.reset-windows-password.com last week, and then I downloaded it and used it to remove the lost password within only few minutes. Furthermore, the powerful tool didn't cause a little data lose. It's worth an attempt.

Emachines 3240 windows xp home edition need to reset to factory settings no disc


Did this come with a recovery disc and you lost it? If it didn't come with one you may have a recovery partition that you can boot to. If there IS a recovery partition you should see a message on bootup that will tell you what button to push to startup to the recovery partition. If you DON'T have a recovery partition your only options are a clean install with a Windows installation disc or to call emachines (gateway) to see if they have a disc to send you.

You can contact them by following the instructions here:

I can't get acerpower fv sound driver from its cd after i format the desktop why?


Hello,

It all depends on which type of CD you are using to get the drivers from. The Acer FV recovery discs, are meant to run recovery only and not store any user accessible files. However, I can recall that one of these CD's is a CD with the name "Acer Power FV Resource CD" which should actually contain the driver for the sound.

Please use following link to download the sound driver: Acer Power FV Sound Driver direct download

At this stage I will assume your OS to be Windows XP SP3, your Audio driver will be Realtec High Definition Audio.

If you have used a Windows XP CD to format the desktop as you've said, you need other drivers as well not just sound. Let me know if you need more drivers and I will find the links for you.

Hi My acer t135 will not boot up properly when


First of all you must recover your files: download and burn a Linux Live-CD, boot from it and move your files to an USB stick.
All older Acer's have a hidden recovery partition. Check in the BIOS (F2 to boot on my Acer): that Acer Disk to Disk Recovery is activated in the Main panel, which D2D Recovery is well on Enabled. To access it press ALT + F10 once the Acer logo is displayed.
If you don't have one borrow from a friend a retail XP disk and do a Repair or Inplace Upgrade install.

You can still install windows xp without the recovery disc. Just buy a windows xp installer then download the v2 premier driver in the net.

I lost the cd with the drivers for an Acer ZG5 AOA110 with Windows XP Home Edition, I downloaded them from the Acer's website and now I don't know how to install them because they are zipped and I want to...


This procedure involves you having access to another pc. If so, it should get you on the right direction. Make a folder and unzip the drivers into this folder. Borrow any win xp cd that you can obtain. Download a program from the internet called nlite. A google search will take you there. Install this program. With nlite you can create a bootable cd/dvd disc to replace your lost one. The program
will take the win xp setup files from your borrowed disc and integrate the drivers into the setup directory. You can even intregrate service packs into the setup. In the unattended settings you can insert the license key and all the user info.(ie: country, date, timezone, etc.) Nlite has a wizard so
even a novice pc user can follow thru with the creation. This disc will become your new one.
Finally check the following url to ensure you have the correct drivers downloaded.

Trying to reinstall xp with recovery discs, now i cant get it to boot


If you can boot go to safe mode using F8, see if you can do system restore from start/programs/accessories/system tools.

If you cannot boot, or system restore does not work you need to reinstall Windows, either using recovery CD from Acer, or generic Windows disk. In last case you will need to reinstall driver after installing windows.
If you do not format hard disk or delete partition, you will be able to recover your data (documents, pictures, music, desktop contacts etc) after installing Windows.

Always better than incinerating your Acer.
