acer aspire stuck in Acer eRecovery Management Loop
Trying to restore an Acer Aspire back to factory default. Do not have the password and now the computer will not let me go anywhere except Acer Recovery Management.
This is not my computer. Senior Citizen having trouble with the computer and I agreed to look at. Decided to start fresh but the owner does not know what the password is for the recovery, The hint is "skwak". Anyone have any ideas?
Tried to get around it, tried to start in safe mode but no matter what I do the computer goes back to Acer eRecovery Management.
I removed the CMOS Battery, hoping the computer would forget where it was but that did not work. Unplugged the computer, CMOS Battery and the hard drive and waited for 10 minutes. Computer still boots to Acer eRecovery Management.
