Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook
If you know the password, then when you go to change it instead of entering a new password just press enter on the keyboard. If you don't know the password try, admin or administration or even the word password.

Ah that difficult with a laptop.
use this tool
!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
or flash the bios from the laptop manufactor sites bios update.
or failing that - open the laptop up. take out the on board battery or search on line for where the jumpers are situated on the motherboard and reset them.
No easy solution im afraid.

You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.
Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.
