Trying to unlock an Aspire one

Q: Trying to unlock an Aspire one

Hello I'm trying to unlock an Acer Aspire one ZG5 and no matter what I do it keeps asking for "Enter CURRENT Password:?" I've tried resetting it with recovery,F12,F2 doesn't matter I keep coming back to that **bleep** screen I'm *this* close to maybe finding the BIOS battery and yanking it out to see if I can erase this thing's tiny little mind. Or telling my friend he needs to take it to a shop. Any options I'm not seeing?

Preferred Solution: Trying to unlock an Aspire one

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Western Digital WD My Passport 2 TB external hard drive
Western Digital's security software allows a password to be set on the external drive, encrypting it. When the drive is connected to a PC, a virtual CD (VCD) partition runs (via autorun) an unlocker utility WD Drive Unlock.exe, that allows password entry.
When I connect the locked drive to a Windows 7 PC (that does not have any WD software installed), the autoun popup appears and I select "Run WD Drive Unlock.exe". At that point, User Account Control (UAC) elevation prompt appears, requiring Administrator
password in order to continue.
WD Drive Unlock then lets me enter password.
Because of UAC elevation, the unlocker can be used only by an Administrator user or by a standard user account who knows the Administrator password.

Is UAC elevation prompt truly necessary?
Is it appearing because Western Digital hasn't coded the unlocker exe correctly, or would any such utility require UAC elevation?

I'd like to find a way that a standard user account can run the unlocker to enter passsword and access the external drive, without having to know the Windows Admin password.

I do have PC based on Gigabyte 970A-DS3P motherboard, I bought it already assembled, and out of the box it had this 3TB Hdd Unlock program installed. I would have to reinstall my system soon and I was wandering what exactly this software is for? What is it do? Will I need it when I'll reinstall my system or not really?

A:3TB Hdd Unlock

It's most likely intended to allow you to see and be able to use all of a large drive.

Windows can only see and utilize about 2.2 TB on a drive that is initialized as MBR. If you had a 3 or 4 TB drive, the portion above 2.2 would be useless and not even visible.

The standard way around that is to initialize as GPT, rather than MBR. GPT doesn't have that 2.2 TB limitation.

BUT--some motherboard manufacturers have provided downloadable software that can overcome the MBR limitation. It tricks Windows, so that you can see and use the portion above 2.2 TB. I'm not sure if it's usable on drives larger than 3 TB. I'm pretty sure that's what Gigabyte has provided to you in this case. I'd guess you have a 3 TB drive and the builder knew of the limitation, so used this special Gigabyte download.

It doesn't have anything to do with installing Windows per se. If your drives are under 2.2 TB you don't need it or if you can initialize the drive as GPT rather than MBR, you don't need it. Otherwise, you do need it, unless you don't care about not being able to use all of a large drive.

Hey guys, i'm currently running a system with a p4p800 se m/b and a p4 2.4Ghz proc. with 1.5gb of ddr 400 ram 2 X 512mb and 2 X 256mb. The problem i'm having is that, my bios sets my fsb at 133 and my ram speed to 266mhz, what i'd like to know is if there is a custom bios or something that can help me unlock the multiplier. I have overclocked my processor to 3.2Ghz and it's running cooler with my cpu cooler but that only pushes my ram to 333mhz. Can you help me?

A:P4 Cpu unlock?

P4s are multi locked. There are hardware hacks to unlock however I never recommend doing so.

If it is just that your ram speed increases and you do not want it to, just use a lower divider or ram speed. When you raise the fsb, it is back to where it should be.

How can I unlock the hard drive


Hi, and welcome to TSG.

That would depend on the details and specifics about the hardware, operating system, and how the drive was locked; none of which you have shared with us.

I spilled something on mouse the other day and as a result I cannot right-click. Instead, I press shift and click. For some reason, lately, I have not been able to do this. I also notice that the function key is not doing anything and the F1-12 buttons work without it, as if the Fn is locked. Does anyone know how to change this back? I can't right click at all anymore and its kind of annoying.

In Windows XP if a user locked their pc I could simply unlock it using my user name and password because I am the network administrator. This does not seem to work in Windows 7. Is there some setting to return to the way it used to be in XP?

A:Unlock pc

unfortunately; i do not believe there is a way to do such a thing because windows 7 is pretty much a updated version of windows vista whereas xp was completely different in terms of the architecture of the operating system as vista and 7 I would say are more secure than xp by a long shot.

A friend has Vista (Home Edition) and accidentally clicked on the Lock button.

Now when she tries to boot up all she gets is a black screen.

I am not familiar with Vista but wondered if booting into Safe Mode and doing a System Restore would work. Last time I suggested a System Restore she said there were no recent points and she had to go back weeks.

Is there any other option in Safe Mode to get her booting normally again? Her computer is only a year old and she did not receive a Vista disc with it


A:Vista won't unlock

Shut down the computer for a cold boot. Tap the "F8" key as you are booting.

Select "Safe Mode with networking" from the boot menu.

Log into windows Vista with your personal account that holds the administrator access.

Open a command window (START--->RUN--->CMD.exe). At the command prompt type the following "net user administrator /active".

And that&#8217;s it. Log out and log back in as administrator.

If I have a rar file I downloaded awhile back but it was password protected, is there any programs I can get for free that can unlock it for me?

A:Unlock Rar Files

Welcome to BC sko!

Well, there isnt really anyway that I know of to unlock a password protected Rar file. There are programs on the internet which say that can unlock Rar files, but I doubt they do what they really say. Also, if you know where you downlaoded the file from, maybe it says what the password is near the link etc.

EDIT: Actually, when I think about it I dont know if this topic is allowed because it involves cracking passwords.

So I installed Windows 7 over the weekend and love it, it's awesome, I fixed any initial problems I had etc etc.. but there's one issue that I cannot figure out. My laptop is asleep rather than off most of the time, so when I open the lid it turns on and up comes my user log in.

That's all fine, but after I type my password in and hit enter the screen goes black for a solid 10-15 seconds. This happens every time, and always for the same length of time. It also does not matter whether I am logging in or just unlocking, I still get a long period of black screen with no activity.

What can I do to troubleshoot a problem like this? Video card drivers are installed, and I'm in single display mode (don't have an external monitor) so I can't think of a reason for Windows to be doing this.

Thanks for any ideas.
