    Check with your Acer Service they could set back the BIOS to default settings. That would delete any password of the BIOS!

    I'm not sure some of the following will work? May give it a try:

    1.: if you origin password were 4 digits, try 0000 or 0423 (thise are master passwords for services used by Acer for various devices);

    2.: if you you know how to open the Tablet, open it and disconnect the Main Battery and, if available also the Clock/BIOS Backup Battery and shorten the connector pin for to fully discharge the mainboard (used for to hard-reset the BIOS).

    Still if possible, go to the next Acer Service Outlet or use to call and/or contact to the Support of Acer because they'll ask you for an prove of ownership of your tablet.

    Remeber ALL WHAT YOU DO IS ON YOUR OWN RISK!

    That I would only try if I'm 100% sure it does!! Mainly those Reset Button are for to reset the OS and apps to their "virgin" state!

    Not really sure about that! Maybe for the RT but the Windows 8 version!! Problem is that the BOIS's of that 2 are different! And the password in question is located in the BIOS while in the ARM (RT) is in system!

    Again, I'me really not sure about that and that's why I would contact Acer Support directly. Was only talking to an friend who's working by Acer Thailand. According top him, Acer use an extra Battery for the BIOS of the Intel Tablet while the RT didn't has that! Abd the Windows RT is ARM based while Windows 8 Tablet Intel based!
