The best way to this is to reset the cmos on the motherboard of the Laptop. This will reset the bios password.
To do this unplug all power from the unit and remove the battery. Remove the cover from the laptop so the motherbard is exposed. Look for the cmos battery (about the size of a nickel) and remove the battery for about 30 mins and then replace. Reassemble your laptop and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: ACER ASPIRE 5100 WONT BOOT
Try taking all of your ram chips out and re-seeting them. I upgraded to 4 gigabytes in my 5100 and it wouldn't boot, just a black screen with some cdrom and hd activity. Or try running with just one ram chip and then going into the bios and setting everything to default. this made my system bootable again.

i was able to go on the acer website on another pc and found that if when you turn on your acer and hold down ALT key while hitting F10 that will bring you to a system recovery screen. you can restore factory settings from there. It will wipe out all of your documents and pix but it does fix the problem.

You may have to remove and reset the HDD and Memory on the unit.
Next, you will recv. the F-2 to continue or F-12 to enter setup.
Enter setup and change date and time.
Save and try.
You may have a damaged HD or boot partition and reloading the operating system will be necessary.
Reseating the HD will assure that you have a good connection and the same with the memory.
Also, if the unit has been dropped, you may have a damaged HD and may need to change it.

1. Turn the Laptop off
2. Remove the battery
3. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop
4. Disconnect any peripheral devices from the laptop such as printer usb cables, PCMCIA cards etc.
5. Push and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go
6. Connect the AC adapter to your laptop
7. Push power button to turn on the laptop
8. If this resolves the issue shutdown the laptop connect the battery and turn laptop back on
If issue is not resolved restart the computer and begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly until you see a screen that gives you options to enter different modes. Highlight "Safemode" and press enter. If the computer boots completely into safemode you likely have a driver that has corrupted or a hardware device that has failed. Likely driver failures are video card drivers. Got to Device Manager and uninstall the video card driver and restart the system. You can do this with other drivers as well.
