Nope, Administrators and Users set passwords. If none has been set than a blank field (no password) should let you in. Otherwise contact the person that may have set the password.

How to factory reset


Hello!

Did the system come with a Factory Reset CD? If it did, use that.

Tip

Accounts unusable due to password loss


When getting a new computer set up two administration accounts, and always change the name from "administrator".

Set one account to your name (simple to remember) and your own memorable password. Use this account on a regular basis for your data and for software updates.

Set one account to something simple like the name "BLACK". Set the password to something memorable like the opposite "WHITE". Keep this account unused.

So if you forget the password of the used account, you should be able to go in the second account and change the password of the first account, without any problems.

Write down the name and password somewhere of both accounts in a diary for instance, so that you can look it up at a later date. Not writing passwords down is good advice, until you need it!

If you are having problems with your used account, it is still possible to recover data using the second administrator account before you do a factory reset, which would destroy ALL of the data.

There are a lot of questions in the PC sections which refer to lost passwords and account names.
Plus lot of requests for factory resets due to being unable to access anything.

Hopefully this advice will prevent the need to ask, as we as experts cannot second-guess what you put in as a account name and password.

Thus the only thing we can suggest is a Factory reset, if that is possible!

I want to take my acer aspire back to the factory setting but dont have a cd how do i do it


Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc,  pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.

How do i fixt it. it has crash and now asking for a pass word and i dont have it the screen is black


here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need win xp recovery disk.

I want to secure my DL-524 but I keep getting blocked from admin management


Maybe someone took the ownership of the router by changeing the password.
If it's not letting you in with the default
username: admin
Password: admin

or
Username admin
Password: (no password at all)

Than you shold do a manual reset on the router, just grab a pen and there's a reset button on the back of the router, push it and it sets it back to factory defaults, than you should be able to log in with the router's default password and do the security.
