Having problems with your Acer Computer AOA150 Notebook ?

My two year old kid changed my password by mistake and now I cannot get into my acer aspire laptop.


Answers :

Um, is this password issue occurring before windows has a chance to load or is this the main windows password that you're talking about?

Considering that you have XP, there should be an Administrator account accessible when you start up windows in Safe Mode.
After the initial turn-on screen and before the "Windows" loading screen comes up, you'll want to tap the F8 key calmly, but repeatedly. If the key is pressed soon enough it will bring up a "white-text w/black background" screen where you'll have 'startup options' and Safe Mode will be one of them, select & start in "safe mode". The start-up process will look a bit different than you're used to, text and other stuff will fly down the screen replaces the fancy logo & loading screen... but let it keep going.

Once windows loads and brings you to the login screen, Administrator should be one of the user options... select Administrator. Once in the administrator account, you can change anyone's password via the Control Panel under User Accounts.

This link describes another few approaches, from the "aspire one user" forum:

In particular I'd recommend tip #1, I've never known of that(oddly), and that would get you to the same end that I speak about.

I hope things work out well for you.
There is only one way to do this you need ubuntu on a cd and insert it and boot from cd and install on to the ram you need atleast 1 gig then you can retrieve your data and put it on a external hardrive. Then you need to reinstall windows i suggest windows 7.
