This could be a Windows password or a system password or both. If you
don't have the Windows password and the former owner can't tell you what
it is, you might have to erase the disk, reinstall Windows and thus
solve the problem. A System password is a theft protection that can only
be changed if you know the password. It is embedded in the laptop
hardware. Ask the former owner what the password is, otherwise there is
no solution but to ask Acer Service.
