Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

Windows Vista Home Basic

\015 I have a system that I'm trying to get into, but I'm not able to change the username at the login. It doesn't give me the option to change the user. The system is currently locked with an old user and I want to log in with the administrator, but the option is not there. Any clues?\015

Answers :

The administrator user is locked by default with Windows Vista. You can unlock it from the command prompt if you have access to an account with administrative privileges (which I'm assuming you son't have access to).

There are a number of bootable CDs you can download that will allow you to remove a password or unlock the administrative user, but some of them can be slightly complicated processes. My preference is the Ubuntu Live CD. If you want more detail on the discs let me know.

I had someone put Windows Vista Basic on my laptop about 4 months ago. It worked fine until about 6 weeks ago. One day I started my laptop up, and now everything is gone. The only thing on my computer is a window that says my Vista Basic Home product key is invalid. My desktop, everything is gone. My computer is just black. Except for that Vista window that says I can either use the automated phone system, buy Vista online, or try a different product key. I really need my computer to work again!
