The easy way to clear the bios password and reset bios is to take out the bios battery and start computer for about 10 seconds and then turn it back off and replace the battery. When you turn it back on you may need to go into the bios and reset everything the way you want it, and don't forget to rest the time and date.
If you know the bios password, when booting up, strike the key which is indicated on the boot screen which enables your laptop to go into the bios setup. Then go to the security area, and type in the known password, when it shows the area for a new one,leave it blank, and hit save... it will save the new setting as NOT having a password at all. IF you do NOT know it, sdo the same procedure, but instead of going for the password area, select the option to change the entire bios back to default, or optimum settings. this will sually wipe out any saved things. IF neither works for you.... then take it to a professioanl and have the battery inside removed for at least 30 minutes, and when put back in, all remaining information will have been lost in the bios, effectively erasing the bios password...
Acer locks down the BIOS on there computers. The unlock password it is asking for is probably the password to unlock the BIOS. If you do not know what the BIOS is or why you would need in it, it is best to leave it alone and ignore the message. Also, from some quick research, unlocking the BIOS may void your warranty.

The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.
1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.
2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.
3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.
4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."
5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.
6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.
7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."
8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.
9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."
10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.
