Unless you know how to use tools to reset Windows password, your best bet is a factory restore, press ALT-F10 during Acer boot logo. You will loose everything.
Have to have the eRecovery password in order to factory default reset. ALT-F10 onl gets you to the eRecovery console. Then you choose factory reset...if you can provide the password for that option. ALT-F10 is NOT a solution for a password reset.
