i am also having trouble with my laptop and donít have the administrator enabled i donít know how to enable it either. I just bought it from my sister and she forgot her log-in password all that was done to it was a new screen. i donít know the password i have tried to put a password reset on a USB since i donít have a CD burner. i donít even know how to download the free password reset disks to a USB I always get the command prompt that said kernel cant find the Linux or something? i don't know what else to do i spent over 300 to get it fixed and now i cant use it*please help*how can i enable my admin so i can put it in safe mode, or even any free software that will help to burn a reset password disk to my USB. i have been working on this for about 3days now and i cant take it any more.please help and just email me any one who can help me fix this*

The password can be remove if you can boot in command prompt. Restart your system and press F8. Choose boot in command prompt. Then type netuser and hit enter. It list the number of user account. Again then type netuser nameofuser *. Here put the user account in place of nameofuser and type * and hit enter two three times. Reboot the admin account password will be removed. If this does not work you can use ophcrack. This is a bootable disc which can be used to find Windows login password.

Dont you have a dvd drive inside the Acer aspire 3690 laptop? You can also borrow a cheap dvd external writer and then burn the image file of the operating system on the dvd and simply reinstall windows vista in your laptop.
