I know some methods to reset bios password.
1. The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the mainboard. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes.
So I would suggest you the 1st method. Hope it helps.

much easier than this..
try to enter the password 3 times.....after the last time you will get a fatal error followed by a code something like CNU etc...
put the code on here and i can give you the password to get in

salesa you will need to go into the bios more than likely and turn the password off in there as thats where they are normally enabled / disabled.
if you dont do this then you will probably have to enter that code every time
