    Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

    We can't help with password hacking here at Tom's because we can't be sure who we're helping. If it's the BIOS that is protected, get in touch with Acer, provide definitive proof of ownership and they will probably be able to help.

  2. Thanks for the reply, I'll have her contact Acer.
