if it was the bios password then you can usually just pull a jumper and reset the password on your motherboard. but it will mean taking the computer apart and downloading a user manual for that motherboard to figure out wich jumper to pull.
You also may be able to use a back door pass word but it depends on what bios you are using
These are some of the more popular .
AMI Backdoor BIOS PasswordsReported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.

Notice most are case sensitive as well. if those dont work the last option i have is to take out the cmos battery, power cord and battery for computer and leave out for a day then put all back in. this may reset as well but it takes disasembling the computer.

Contact the store you bought it from whoever installed it should have supplied you with any password they used. Quiter often there is no password just press enter or use password as the password.

Don't even mess with software or gimmicls here because they don't work on laptops. This is something I've done numerous times and on all kinds of Acer laptops. You need to locate your Cmos battery, also known as the RTC battery. If you cannot find it, it means that it is on a place on the motherboard that cannot be seen from any access panel or opening. There is a battery, it is just out of the way. The trick here is that when you find it, you must "short" the two pins of the coket on the motherboard, that is the socket that the battery plug fits into. The easiest way is to get another rtc battery and caut the plug off, bare the wires and twist them together and cover with tape. This shorts out the pins and does a very nice job. Place this "shorting" plug in the socket on the motherboard and power up the laptop. Just keep it powered up for about 30-45 seconds and then power it down. Remove the "shorting" plug and reattach the normal RTC battery. Put the laptop back together and reboot. You will have to reset the BIOS now since it will have ben all reset. I'll get you a service manual that may help in your quest. It will be below...good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair.
