If yoiu are the rightful owner of this computer, call Acer. They will be happy to help you out. If you are NOT the rightful owner, we cannot help you.

Thanks I guess the answer I gave is consistent with what we have discussed in The Lounge not too long ago (didn't Othehill bought it up?).

Thank you guys for your anwsers. Finally, I proccessed differently. I chose the option to restore my computer with cd or dvd, so I did not need to provide my password. But it s good to know that since I am the computer's owner, ACER"client care can help out. I heard that they charge money to reset the password...

Acer (laptops especially) asking for a password and refusing whatever you offer is a fairly common problem... Having had just that issue a few months ago... we finally to do standard Acer restore (Recovery CD) routine; after first copying all data etc. off the system entirely. The restore routine worked flawlessly... The system in question had been hit by a real nasty that deleted three of the registry keys...; and thus no boot up etc...

And for the future... we made an Acronis (Acronis-11) image of the drive once it was reloaded/tweaked etc. with all the required software etc. that had been added in on top of the Acer provided installation. Much easier in future to to do a restore/rebuild to a system already setup (more or les) as one wishes; rather than have to go a two stage path?

And all data is regularly copied off the system...
