Customer Question

I have an Acer laptop. I cannot log onto it. I evidently set a backup to get on with a flash drive. Is there any way to get onto the computer without wiping the whole disc?

Hi,

You would need to reset the password ***** a password ***** disk. If you download the follow tool:

http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

and burn it to a CD, you will be able to insert this into your laptop. When you laptop is turning on press 'F12' a few times and select 'Boot from CD/DVD' this will load the disk and not your hard-drive.

Once this disk has loaded you will see options to remove the password.

Regards
