I have a feeling you will have contact for them to reset the emanager password for you.
Have you tried to restore this unit,
It shouldn't be passworded either just reset back to original install.

Let me know if this helps ,Misterdj

    Sometimes easier to take this issue to the pros....

    I am not sure how confident you are with system repairs but I suggest you try Acer,

    If there are any issues from the unit it will be sorrted out before you get your unit back.

    Unless you have the passwords for the emanager then you have left yourself open for some costs,

    this is unfortunate but you will remember next time,

    Just leave the password to the default and you will never forget it.

    Other option is to buy they software and install over the top of your existing install but you run the risk of losing everything,

    Bonus is you end up with a fresh install and a working machine,

    Good luck with the mission,

    Let me know of your outcome thanks

    HI there,

    I have your manual you could have a look at the specs and go from there,

    Hopefully you have the original disks so the reinstall is quite straight forward ,

    Maybe its possible you could load dual operating systems as long as you dont mind loads of headaches

    not advisable if you dont know how to fix the problems.

    try the manual first,$FILE/AS3680_5570_5580_5570Z_ENG_1123.pdf

    hope this helps,please let me know your outcome thanks

I forgot my password and i want to restore it to factory settings bu ti do not know how

First, you need to reset lost Windows password, there are several ways to fix this. You can try some programs which can reset Windows password quickly and safely. "Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0" is a good choice, I have used this on my Dell laptop and it regained my password quickly. You can search this on Google.
Then you can open "Control Panel" to restore your computer

Good Luck!

Reset password

You can't reset the password if this is a PC or laptop (you failed to give that information), you must format the hard drive by using the factory/recovery restore disc. If you don't have the restore/recovery disc's you can purchase them for a small fee (less than $25.00) from the parts dept of the PC/Laptop manufacturer. If this is not a computer please let me know

I set a password to my laptop and I can't remember what it is, how can I get to use my laptop again??


The quickiest way to reset your password is to run System Recovery (aside paying someone from a local computer store and use a software to reset it). Gateway laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you can restore the computer to factory default without using a restore discs. (please note that this will erase everything). The hotkey for the recovery is the ALT+F10 key. After you press the power button, you need to hold ALT key and then simultaneously press the F10 key.. Once the recovery menu has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings.

Good luck

Can you tell what operating system you are using? It may be possible that your Recovery disk is already corrupted.


Recovery disk detected a hardware error on your notebook preventing the restoration point.

You need to use the Windows operating CD installer CD and either repair the OS or restore the factory setting using the installer. It will surely remove the password

Forgotten password


If you want to restore your laptop to factory setting: You should insert your "recovery disk to the CD/DVD ROM. and then shutdown the laptop.

Now; boot your laptop using the recovery disk(boot the laptop from CD/DVD rom) This will no need to input the password: its either you have to restore the system without deleting the existing files or you have to partition and format the hard drive. formatting hard drive you will end up with fresh copy of system files. same as first day when you purchase the laptop.

be sure to install the driver if there's any.

However; if you tend to do by supplying the password. iguess all factory installation has no password. you have to strike the enter without supplying any password.

may this help,
