HI everybody there! Nice to meet you!

I've got an AcerNote Light, model 320p. It's running an Windows NT 4.0 Server OS but everytime I boot it's asking for a password that I don't have. How can I change the password? Otherwise How can I get an OS on floppies in order to install it in my laptop above described?

Thanks a lot for your cooperation!

Until soon!

Otoniel Alzate.

At what point is it asking for the password? During bootup, or once the OS actually finishes loading?

If it's during bootup, there is a jumper on the motherboard (generally close to the CMOS battery), which you can remove, then power on the system (you should get a message stating that the password has been cleared), turn off the power, reconnect the jumper and you should be good to go.

If it's the OS admin password, you can go to: http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/ and download this Linux based boot CD which will guide you through changing the administrator password. It's my favorite utility for changing admin passwords when we can't find the password amongst our what seems like millions of pieces of documentation. Not that we'd ever lose our documentation...LOL!
