I have a 5570Z series Acer laptop and im trying to format the laptop however eManagement is asking me for a password and i have no idea what it is. Its not the default password. Does anyone know how to get around that?

How are you trying to format the drive? through a recovery CD or a windows CD?

using the recovery program acer has on their laptop. Its called eManagement Recovery

Have you tried 6 zero's ( 000000 ) for the password?

yes i have, its not it.

CaveBob, can you get to the online user manual? If so, I 'think' it tells you how to get around the eManagement Recovery password.... it's ages since I used it so I might be talking cobblers but maybe it's worth a look.

i had a look but theres nothing there =(
i called up acer and they said the only way around it was to send it back to them and have it re-imaged (for a fee ofcourse). I was hoping someone might know a way around it.

CaveBob,just a thought have you tried 6 zero's rather than 6 letters, Paddy
