Step 1: Which model of acer laptop ? there are many
The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is designed to check the integrity of the computer hardware and launch the operating system. The BIOS also has basic security features that prevent unauthorized access to the computer by locking the hard drive with a password. The password is required in order to launch the operating system. That option can be disable without an changes to the operating system.
Turn your computer on. Press "Esc," "Del," "F2" or "F8" to access the BIOS. Use the arrow keys to go to the "Security" tab. Press "Enter." Highlight "HDD Lock," Boot Password" or "Hard Drive password" using the arrow keys. Press "+" until "Disable" appears. Go to the "Exit" tab, highlight "Save and Exit" and press "Enter." Press "Y" when prompted to reboot your computer without the hard drive password.
If you get prompted for the HDD password when turning on the computer, and you do not know it you will need to call Toshiba support. Circumventing an HDD password is not an easy task.
Also there where Toshiba laptops, model 6100, that when the user was suddenly prompted for the HDD password Toshiba replaced the HDD under warranty.
try to reset the bios password 1st you need to open the laptop case and find the bios battery remove it for about 5 minutes and assemble again wait for about 5 minute and try to swich it on again... hope this help
You might need to disable the hdd password by accessing the set up BIOS... If you're unable to disable it from there, You need to contact the manufacturer's support so they can guide you on how to disable the password.
