ok basically.. i have an acer aspire one a150 with linux. only had it for two days and have managed to lock myself out!!
I set up the 'root' password the very first time i switched on.And was only ever asked for it if I chose to lock the system whilst logged on.
I then entered the BIOS and set a supervisor password. and the option for password on boot. I was trying to secure my laptop so basically no one else could go on it.
The manual tells me when the system boots I will be asked for the user password. When i do boot , i get the message please enter CURRENT password. I have tried eveything, entered the two ONLY passwords I have set and nothing. I cant even change the boot source so i can format the thing and just re-install linux from disc.
This is a major problem , i dont want to have to send it away or anything after just two days. Can anyone help, any ideas, such as a default password or anything?
Thanks in advance.
