Forgot password for Acer Iconia tablet

Trying to figure out how to reset the password or the tablet itself.  I let my daughter play with my tablet and somehow the password got changed (go figure) and now we cant use the tablet.

I have forgot my login password on my Acer Iconia W700 Tablet. Not the Supervisor or User passwords but the one to log into once you've logged into the others. I have tried everything I know.

Re: Forgot password for Acer Iconia tablet

There are many methods for resetting a Windows password, though a lot of them are very difficult to implement with UEFI systems. The easiest thing to do is a reset of Windows, though it does require plugging a keyboard into the USB port. With the keyboard plugged in, tell Windows to restart while holding the shift key down. That gives you the extended boot menus when it restarts. There are two options you can get to there to either refresh or reset Windows. A reset will start you over completely, allowing you to create a new account with new password. I don't know if a refresh will also reset the password, though I wouldn't expect it to. Note though that a reset will wipe out your personal files!
