Does anyone know a back door or reset for an Aspire5720-4126 for the HDD password
We won't normally step into conversations that the community can answer; but with this topic we feel it best to provide our answer.
There is not a back door or reset for HDD or BIOS passwords on Acer computers (Note that Windows passwords are handled separately). We suggest contacting your regional Acer service team who can provide you with the best options on HDD and BIOS password removal.

This is not a built in problem. What value a password if it is easily circumvented?
I suspect you will find that all manufacturers are switching, or have switched, to a more secure form of password security.
