By passing the administrater password

I just bought a Acer 5040 from one of my friends. The computer belonged to her brother which is now gone over seas to war. He has got the computer locked where I can't do anything and we have not been able to talk to him,and not for sure when we can. How can I restore the computer with out the disk?

You could start with F10 for system recovery. Select an early reset point hopefully prior to the admin password installation If the lockup is in the BIOS password you could install a new bios chip or add a "user" password.

I have an acer aspire 5040 and its got a bios passwordplease how do i get rid of this?

If you know the current password, you can reset it to a "blank" password.

If you don't know the current password, then you could be a thief in possession of a stolen computer. Find the original bill-of-sale, to prove that you really are the owner of the computer, and telephone ACER, and ask for technical support.

Forgot my windows vista login password

Try to login to safe mode with administrator login and change the password for your user account.

There is no way to bypass user security otherwise in Windows Vista.
