locked
logon blocked window 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I brought this new Acer Aspireone netbook but must have typed the password incorrect a few times. I guess the Window blocked me from login even I typed the right password. It have been many hours and see no sign of resetting nor change. Any help?

  • Hi,

    This case is because of Windows 7 would lock the password awhile if it is already been tried for more than 5 times. In case you keep trying, it would be locked all the time.

    So if you are sure the password is correct wait a moment to retry or try to enter password with onscreen keyboard as a test.

    Otherwise, If this case still persists, I assume you need to recovery your password, please refer to the following link.
