Removing the CMOS Battery is a common way to remove a BIOS password. But this method involves fiddling with the computer hardware and components, so people unfamiliar with laptop hardware are not advised to do so.

However Acer seems to refuse to assist customers with BIOS password issues unless you send the laptop to them and paying a $100 fee.
