May contain a virus or it is a heat issue. Get a bootable antivirus and boot the pc to that and scan the computer. If that is negative then the pc is overheating and needs to be cleaned out. If it is out of warranty you can clean it by taking the bottom off and blowing it out. If it's under warranty, send it in.

    If you have a way to burn a cd, download what is called the ultimate boot disc. Google it, it's free. Burn the iso to disc and there should be an antivirus built into the disc. If you can not burn a disc insert a flash drive into a usb port and put it on there. The other option is to buy an antivirus disc that is bootable from your local software store.

    Start the pc in safe mode and then go to http://www.officerecovery.com/mssql/down... and install this demo and see if it can recover it for you.

Hi bmtyra...

Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop - lost password, can't login in User Login. Is there a way to bypass the password?


If you're having trouble logging into Windows, you can attempt to use the Administrator account to edit/remove the password of the user login. The Administrator account is hidden by default while in normal mode. You'll need to boot the PC into Safe Mode and login as the Administrator account. Follow the below steps:

  1. Reboot the PC and before the Windows boot screen appears, tap the F8 key about once per second.
  2. Eventually you'll be faced with a screen asking you how you want to boot Windows. Select Safe Mode.
  3. You will see some dll, sys, and com files scrolling down your screen, this is normal. Eventually the PC will boot up and you'll have a login screen with your User Account(s) and a new account, Administrator. Select Administrator.
  4. As long as you haven't, in the past, altered the password for the Administrator account, you should be able to simply click this account and have it log you in. If it requests a password, you might try "password" (without quotes) for the password.
  5. Once in, Navigate to Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts
  6. Select the User Login information that you're not able to log into and remove the password for the account or change it something you know.
You can now reboot the PC normally and be able to log into this account without a password or with the password you created.
