Acer Aspire One - can't recognise password to unlock Hard Disk

\015 When trying to enable a password for log in with my Acer Aspire One, I put a password in to lock the Hard Disk.I also put in the same password to enable admin rights which allowed me to set the same password for log in.\015\012\015\012Unfortunately, it now does not recognise my password when it boots up and so consequently it turns off after boot up and after I choose F2 or F10 during boot up.\015\012\015\012I have tried to use the supplied Recovery DVD and by selecting Alt F10 on boot up, I seem to avoid the password requirement and it allows me to select an option to reinstall Acer Aspire One but preseumably because access to the hard disk is now blocked, it just freezes and does not carry out the activity.\015\012\015\012I do not mind re-formatting the hard disk as it is new.\015\012\015\012What can I do?\015\012\015\012Apparently, Acer can re-set BIOS passwords. Is this what I have to do?\015\012\015\012Could anyone who knows Lynux be able to help?\015

Try rebooting and when prompted before full reboot, select Safe Mode. From here it should allow you to enter the computer, but icons and everything will be grey and just the important stuff will show and work.
From here go back into where you set up the pass codes and make them blank and save.
Restart once all the passcodes have been reset to nothing, and let it reboot to the regular window.
Let me know if this helps.
