The finger print bull is how that password came up for me and they want a 125.00 to remove it. I called the better business bureau and filed a complaint. They shouldn't have any right to control your laptop. I to have a 6292 , took it apart as far as I could and could not find jumper or password. This is a gimmick to make money.

SOURCE: restore settings
hi the above is not true ..i have restored many acer laptops ..its very easy to do ...start the computer up you will get the acer logo first then a black screen with a cursor in the top left corner (this only stays on for a few seconds .) when this screen (black screen with cursor) comes up immediatly press alt and f10 this will then bring up a screen that says windows system restore ..just follow the on screen instuctions the first one will be 4 options as to what you like to do ...you need to do complete factory restore (think its the first option) and thats it just follow what it does and asks you to do ..be aware that you will loose everything you put on the laptop ..that wasnt already there when you purchased it ..every computer has a original copy of the factory settings and windows hidden on the hard drive ..your computer will be restored to the brand new condition it was in when you bought it ..dont worry if it seems to take a while and doesnt look like its doin anythin.it is and can take anything from half an hour to an hour for it to do it all...the computer companys and fixers dont like you to know this but trust me ive done loads of acers this way ..and sonys and gateways ..the trick is is to no what buttons to press on start up to access the windows restore facility ..an acer is alt and f10 ...hope that helps.

SOURCE: reset bios password or remove
The laptop password cannot be reset by removing the battery and there is no jumper for the CMOS or bios reset. You must go to Acer to obtain the master password as laptop computers have NVRAM (non-volatile RAM) that retains the password forever as an anti-theft protection. Steve Medley

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

SOURCE: restore back to factory settings
From Acer direct
The other way before Vista starts up is to tap ALT + F10 (at the same time repeatedly) when the computer is first switched on.. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts
Once you have tapped both the ALT and F10 repeatedly, you may see a screen showing:
“Edit Boot options for Microsoft Windows Vista”
If you see this, unfortunately, you have missed the window of opportunity, and you need to restart, and try again.
If you see this:
“Edit Boot options for Windows Setup” OR “Edit Boot options for Acer eRecovery”
Then it indicates that you have tapped the ALT + F10 correctly, and all you now need to do is press “Enter” and the Recovery program should load on your screen after a short pause..
In some cases, you may need to remove the battery (for notebooks only) and run the machine directly from the mains.
The Disk2Disk recovery feature allows you to recover the system without recovery CDs.
This will return your system to factory settings and will delete everything stored on the machine.
If possible we strongly advise backing up anything important on your machine before starting the recovery process.
