Well, sh*t outta luck. I did alot of searching on the net, only to find out it is unrecoverable. You can clear the Cmos by jumping the contacts for the battery. but, the HDD stores the PW not only on the Main board, but in a secret sector right on the Platters. so the only way you can get the Netbook working again is by getting a new HDD.

As for acer, I talked to them and they want me to pa more then 60 USD every 30 mins to solve the problem.. no, don't think so.
