You had to have set up a password at some point. I t wouldn't just one day add a password. You might have to call Acer on this one. I am not sure anyone on here will help you as we can't verify you are the owner of the laptop.

If it is windows XP, Ctrl+Alt+Del, then just type your username as 'Administrator', and keep the password as blank, and hit 'Enter'.
It will do the trick.
You can also try it on Vista or Windows 7.

it is not working, all it says is " unable to log you on because of an account restriction." should i just give up and pay the acer people to reset it?
