Is it a desktop or laptop ?
If it is a desktop you need to reset your bios password since you dont know it.
First is to remove the bios battery for at least a couple of mins and then put it back and restart the machine. It that doesnt work you will need to look for the Bios reset jumper pins. They are usually beside the bios battery. It will say reset or something like that. Short the pins and then put them back tot eh original location. If you need further explanation, then ask n i will advice. cheers

There is not anything in the BIOS that will fix this.

If you can boot it to the repair console. At the command prompt typ this command.
fixboot.

Then try srating it.

No need to reset jumper. What you need is a screw driver to disassemble the laptop case and locate the CMOS battery for BIOS. Remove the battery and power adaptor of the laptop before doing any surgery to your laptop. After removal of the CMOS battery for the BIOS , let the laptop idle for 15 minutes (of course,  without  the battery and power adaptorof the laptop). Then, the password for the BIOS will be cleared as there is no power supply for BIOS.

The service (disassemble) guide is in the link below. Do it with due care.

OR

You can google for the keywords of acer aspire 5515 Disassembly for more information.

If you have no access to change the setting of BIOS, you cannot change the boot sequence in order to fix the laptop.

In page 152 of the above service guide, it says:-

Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check

If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the following steps:
• Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine.
• Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture.
• Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.
• Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the
system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.
• Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.
• If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and
try again.
NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).
