Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If he hasn’t changed the default password, try 000000 (six zeros). This is the default Acer BIOS recovery password.
If this doesn’t work, try pressing Alt+F10 and F2 and enter the above password.

Good Luck!

    If the default Acer BIOS password doesn't do the trick, try this: http://www.download.com/Active-Password-Changer/3000-2092_4-10434110.html?tag=pdp_prod It is a trial version of the software and has limitations, but it should accomplish the task you are in need of.
