Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
It is against the policy of Bleepingcomputer to assist in the by-passing of security passwords which includes the resetting of the BIOS password, to which should be known to the computer owner.
I have to stay clear of any advice that would involve this security feature. Although I am sure your intentions are sincere, if information is posted here on how to by-pass this password, it could be used by members who have less savory intentions.
With that being said, I want to offer you advice based on the possibility that you have just an issue with getting the computer to start up properly.
However, if your problem is based on the fact that the systems security feature has caused this issue, because you tried to over-ride a security password, you would have to contact Acer support to get futher assistance, as this type of assistance can not be offered here.
Your attempts may have activated a system lock-down feature and that is all the advice I can offer you here.
But I firmly believe you should contact Acer support and ask them if trying to reset a BIOS password may have caused this issue to happen and if so, they would most likely be able to offer you the best advice and assistance.
I hope you understand our stand on this.
