recovery option using alt+f10

I am trying to restore my pc using the alt+f10 recovery option on my acer laptop. I have the d2d enabled in Bios, however when the screen comes up with the option to use disc to disc restore from factory default, or the option to restore from backup disc, i am asked for a password, i never put a password anywhere for this,plus the user manuel dosen't mention any password,Please someone help!!

Could it be that other user put password on unit. Do you know if this unit has a BIOS password?  Have you checked User accounts in the Control Panel?


Suggest you contact your Acer Support service in your region for assistance.


Good day
