Hi, long ago I set up a BIOS password on my Acer Aspire 5720z, when I
learn to boot from DVD’s from grub I stop to enter the BIOS and… I
forgot my password (I want to shot my balls), Is there any way to
recover it without sending it one week to the acer stuff???

There may be a jumper you can short out, but you would need to search for that on the manufacturer’s website. Removing the bios battery may do it, but there is no guarantee on that, since it may have capacitors to help keep it from losing the settings.

You can also try some of the following. I would not do the freezer trick if I were you.
