You should be able to press F8 on start up, so as you are able to start in safe mode, the option will come up and highlight the line 'Start windows in safe mode' and press enter. When windows starts the icons will be larger than normal, so don't worry, but their will show your own account and an administrartor account, click on the administrator account and go to accounts and select the account that is passworded. You should then either be able to delete the password, change, or delete the account, when done, restart pc and it should be ok and back to normal

SOURCE: FORGOTTEN PASSWORD

Hi, Try opening the laptop and locate the cmos battery (it will look like a car alarm battery). Take it out for about 15 minutes. Take out the laptop battery as well. Plug it in back and turn back on, this should clear the password. If this does not work, try starting the laptop before putting back in the cmos battery and the laptop battery. Then shut down and put in back the cmos battery and the laptop battery. Start it up again and the password should be reset. I think you will have to press F1 at some point to save or load default settings. If this still doesn't work let me know so I can give another suggestion. Thanks, Lolita

Acer aspire 5536 forgotten the HDD user password


Assuming that after you enter the wrong three times it should generate a lockout error. At this time you can follow these steps to unlock the system:


http://pcmediks.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-remove-hdd-user-password-in-acer.html



Basically, once you unlock it, you should be able to boot into the BIOS and disable the HDD password. I'd say to do that first but you would need the password once you were in the BIOS to be able to disable it thus the recommendation to essentially set it to something you know first via the guide above.
