The Acer TravelMate 5520 does not have a BIOS password when it leaves the factory.
If it has one now, it must have been set either by you or by a previous owner. We cannot help you with that.

The CMOS battery is inside the laptop. The laptop casing has to opened to access the battery - it could be a coin-shaped battery like those used in watches and calculators, or on some laptops it's soldered on to the mainboard and can't be removed.

Unlike a desktop, laptop BIOS passwords cannot be reset by removal of the main or CMOS battery. A BIOS password is a security measure and is designed to be very difficult to remove.
You need to contact Acer and be prepared to prove ownership.

Most BIOS Passwords have a backdoor pw. The only way to obtain that is calling MFW.

Most laptop BIOS's have a computer specific backdoor password that can be generated from the service tag. For security reasons the method of doing this is a closely guarded secret known only to the manufacturer. Anyone with knowledge of this would be prohibited from revealing it.
