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.

Which Password? Bios Password?Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista?Windows 7?OK,if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've gotto have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops withwindows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do whenyou buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling theOperating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator(hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once thedesktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

How far does it get in booting. Do you see the Windows screen with the side scrolling bar before it reboots. During the boot process, start hitting the F8 key once a second until it drops you into a menu where you can select to start in Windows with safe mode. If you cant get that far, hit the DEL key a few times a soon as you boot the computer to try to go into your BIOS. If you can get into either of these, I may be able to help you.

How do I unlock my ACER Aspire laptop when my password is lost?


What operating system and which password? The Bios Password, The Hard Drive Password or the Windows Welcome Screen User Login Password?

Let's assume if you are not smart enough to remember your password that you surely are not smart enough to put a password on the Bios or Hard Drive. :) Sorry.

Reset my password on my acer laptop


If you know the current password then click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Under user accounts select change password.

If you forgot the password, turn off the laptop then turn it back on and repeatedly hit the F8 key until you see SAFE Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. You will see a login screen with the Administrator account and the Account of the id that you forgot the password. Select the Administrator account (hopefully it will not be password protected). One you are logged in click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Select the account for which you forgot the password and then select Remove Password. Reboot your laptop.

I cant get out of click user name screen in win xp home.there is no user icons. what do i do. restarting comp does not work? its a acer aspire 5000


The reason there is no user icons is the system either only has one user name associated with it or Fast User Switching is turned off. You can try to boot into safe mode and login as Administrator, but that may or may not be password protected as well. Chances are you will have to boot into repair mode and login as admin and try to change the username and password on the system to gain access.
