Hi,

Have you checked if the Alt key is working? You can try to plug in an external keyboard and try the Alt+F10, if it works then you're having a problem with the Alt key.

Hope this helps.

How do i get a back door password for my acer aspire 5315 as i forgot my password


There is no back door password but you can try this

At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery. The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD. If the hard drive is replaced the system loses its eRecovery features. These features are on the hard drive and cannot be reinstalled
  • Be sure that you back up your data files before performing this option. All of your personal data files and applications are erased during the recovery process.
  • Due to the large number of virus and Spyware threats on the Internet, it is recommended that you disconnect all Internet connections before performing the recovery. After the recovery, antivirus and firewall software can be installed, and then the Internet connection can be re-enabled to update the antivirus definitions and perform Microsoft® Windows Updates.
  1. Remove all CDs or DVDs from the optical drives.
  2. Turn off the computer, using the normal Windows shut down process.
  3. After the computer is turned off, disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. This includes USB devices such as a printer, scanner, removable storage, or camera.
  4. Turn on the computer. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, press ALT+F10. The easiest method is to hold down the ALT key and repeatedly press the F10 key.
5.Windows loads files. 6. If you get EDIT BOOT OPTIONS for Windows Setup hit the ENTER key 6.1. If you get EDIT BOOT OPTIONS for Windows 7 , Try ALT + F10 (ALT on the right side of the Space bar) 7. You will get the Recovery console , Select completly Restor to Factory Settings.
