Lost Acer eRecovery password on Acer Travelmate 2350

\015 Hi.\015\012\015\012I bought an Acer TravelMate 2350 in October/November 2005.\015\012My notebook didnot come with the OS installed but was shipped with the installation CD for Windows XP Prof OS. I installed Windows XP Prof in BIOS mode and everything was ok. If I remember correctly, during installation it asked me for a password and I think I put in the default of 000000 and changed it to some password which I have forgotten.\015\012\015\012At a later stage, my notebook became very slow. Last year in May, one computer technician from my work tried to sort it out, but formating the HD. He couldn't break the password so that he'd re-format the hard drive and restore it to factory defaults.\015\012We called Acer South Africa and told them about the problem, but, they didn't help at all. So this technician installed another Windows XP Prof.\015\012At present my notebook runs on two Windows XP Prof. \015\012During start up I need to choose the OS i want to boot up to.\015\012I don't know what to do, my notebook is really a joke. It takes about 10 minutes to open a blank Microsoft Word document.\015\012\015\012I want to have only one OS running my notebook, since the HD has a partition, I'd like to have both C & D formatted.\015\012\015\012Can you guys give some advices?\015\012\015\012Thanks, Manny\015

If you have access to the Windows XP CD you can delete both partitions during the build process and then create one new large partition. The screen where you would do this is the first place the build process stops after loading the drivers, etc. You will see a list of existing partitions. Highlight the first one and there will be a choice to delete the partition. You have to confirm the deletion. Then do the same thing with the second partition. At this point you can proceed with the build process allowing the build process to create a partition of the available space. Make sure that you have a copy of any drivers that are unique, especially NIC. You can typically download these from the vendor's web site.
