I am having trouble logging into my Acer Laptop.

Asked by LOVEAG07 (2points) May 13th, 2010

I have a password set up on my laptop, and today when I try logging in it accepts the password but it freezes right after, I can log in through the Guest side. Does anyone know how to perform a System Recovery? someone told me you press ALT+F10, but I don’t know if that’s true..

Each BIOS has a proprietary keypress to enter setup. Either watch the pre-boot screen to see which key, or Google the Acer Support Site to find the answer.

My Acer netbook has you press F12 to enter the boot selection menu.

Can you log in as Administrator in Safe mode? (press F8 as it powers up to get to the menu) Then try changing the password to your account from there.

As @BluRhino said you should boot into safe mode, but once in there you can also create a new account to use if changing the password doesn’t work. If you make a second account with admin privileges you’ll be able to access all your old stuff through c:/users/...

A system recovery would wipe out everything since your last restore point, which is probably a long time ago. Send me a PM if you need more help.
