This is a password stored on a chip. You can't remove it by usual methods.
Contact Acer and see if they can give you any solutions.

i agree with Michael, here my answer :
You can't remove the password, without knowing it !   -->  ( what good is a password that can be "repaired" ?)
modern laptops keep it in a security chip - for anti-theft reasons
resetting the bios does not help;  nor does removing the battery, since the password is not in there
you would need to know in what chip it is, and how to reset that
you have to turn it in to the manufacturer, and show proof of ownership - then they can help
or replace the mobo !

It is usual to award the first correct answer... not repeated answers, so can you contact a moderator for advice by clicking the Request Attention tab
Thankyou.
