Acer empowering technology password recovoryThe password is store

\015 ''The password is stored in a file on the hidden partition. The best way to get at this is to use something like the Ubuntu OS that will run a complete system from a cd. Once it is booted, you can navigate to the file AIMDRS.DAT which may or may not be in the tool folder. This file should be in the drive called PQservice. Any text editor should be able to read it at that time, including ubuntu's own text editor.''can anyone tell me how to do that or know another way of recovering my empowering technology password?\015

Answers :

Hi.. to find the aimdrs.dat, it is located at PQSERVICE drive/root folder. In my laptop, it is on drive x:\\. Please check the drive for the location in your computer. You can access the PQSERVICE, For example:
- go to command prompt (Click start, run, type: cmd)
- type: " x: " (without " ")
- type: " dir " (you will see the file of aimdrs.dat is there)
- you can copy the file to any location.
for example to external flash drive which is in drive f:\\
type: copy aimdrs.dat f:\\ (the aimdrs.dat file will be copied to your new location, flash disk in drive f:\\
- you can open the flash disk and open the aimdrs.dat file by right click on the file and choose open with notepad or wordpad. You will see the password in there. It will say "PD=it's your password".

That's what I was doing with my Acer laptop to get the empowering technology password. I hope you can solve the problem. Good luck.

BTW don't install ubuntu if you want to keep windows, Just run it offthe cd. Ubuntu is a freeware linux OS and can be download at http://www.ubuntu.com
