Hi there.

Yesterday I reset my administrator password on my acer aspire sa80 2gb. Unfotunately i have now forgotten what it is and i am unable to get in!!! The pc came from my brother and although i have some sort of acer restart disc i dont have anything else. Actually not even sure if that disc is just blank as in back up? How can I fix it? Can i blank it out somehow and start again, or do i have to buy a new base unit? Also windows may not be right as its my brothers so might not me a valid version well can't find anything in the box!

xx

Try tapping F8 as its starting then choose Safe Mode from list, if you get to windows you could go to Control Panel Accounts nd change it or delete it. Also System Restore may put things back to as they was before

If you can get into safe mode maybe this might work.click here

I've used this service before, free if you don't mind waiting 72 hours, but I found if I kept checking on the results page during this time period a little bit more of the password was revealed each time I checked, in your case it may be enough for you to remember it.

If it's XP you're talking about (you didn't say) and you can get your hands on an XP CD, this should work for you. click here
