SOURCE: Bios Password Reset
The only idea I have is to find and disconnect the CMOS back-up battery after removing main battery and unplugging the AC adapter. That SHOULD clear the bios completely, wiping out the password, the date, and everything else.
I know this works on desktops, and most laptops, but no promises, and the cmos battery may not be easy to access.
You should probably leave the battery unhooked for at least 1-2 minutes to be sure it clears.
Hope this is some assistance!

SOURCE: how to reset password
To set the bio password, follow the following:
As soon as your laptop powers up, hold F2 until the ACER logo appears. Now press the right arrow on your keyboard twice to go to the: "MAIN" tab. Now press enter. You will be asked to enter the new password twice along with the original one. (if you previously had a password.). Now scroll down to where it says either: "Enabled" or "Disabled". If it is: "Disabled", press enter and select "Enabled". Exit the BIOS saving changes.

Underneath the ram (remove ram) is a jumper marked J3
short this out for a couple of seconds.
This will reset bios right back.
Boot and go straight to bios (F2) and set your options as needed there.
Eg date, time, drives,and any other options the bios needs to be able to boot the machine. When you have done make sure you SAVE then exit which will re-boot.
If you didnt mess any bios settings you should be back in business
