You should be able to sort it by keeping the Home Button (big button on bottom of handset in the middle) and the Power/Lock button (on the right hand side of phone) pressed together for a few seconds - this will initiate a Master Reset and take away the need to enter a password. Please note you will lose any data you have previously installed.

Hope this helps.

Tried it still no thing
The only way is to remove it is by flashing the phone

It worked for one I bought from Cash Generator that asked for a Password when first switched on - not sure what else you can try.

Just to clarify - are you trying my suggestion while the phone is switched off (not just in hibernation, but completely switched off) but still has a charge on it. If so, by pressing these buttons at the same time and keeping them pressed for a few seconds (possibly longer than a few seconds) you should get the 'restore facility' and then just follow these steps:

1. Press and hold the power and menu key for few second untill you enter the restore menu

2. After the menu show choose “wipe data/factory reset “

3a. Select yes and your phone will be restore to default
3b. After finish choose reboot now

4. It will restart. Don’t panic because it take few minute until complete.

5. Don’t panic just wait. If there is no response in 10 minute just release your battery and put it back again and repeat from first step.

Note;
-use home key to select.
-use volume up down to choose the menu.

You can also use this method if you wish to download a custom rom to the handset, however, it also acts as a way of doing a Factory Reset if you can't access this facility in the normal manner.

I can assure you 100% I followed this method to sort exactly the same problem described by the OP - I did not download anything but simply did the Factory Reset (Hard Reset). I will try and find the thread that I discovered this information on but it was a few months back - I simply did a Google search for something like "Samsung Galaxy Ace Hard Reset" and "Forgot Password/Pattern Lock for Galaxy Ace/Hard Reset"and found this method and worked within 2 minutes.
OP - if this method doesn't work for you there is another way you can try and access the Factory Reset option - see link below:

Think we might be talking at cross wires here in connection with which model the OP has - I was assuming it was the Samsung Ace S5830 but now see OP has also put S5230.

OP - can you confirm - is it the Galaxy Ace S5830 (Android Phone) or Samsung S5230 (which is the Tocca Lite).

Apologies if I was assuming it was the Ace.
