Shut down and unplug the PC
Carefully check the motherboard for some blue jumpers.
There should be a clr cmos and clr pswd jumper.
If you look at the picture of the motherboard below, note those tiny blue things in the picture.
Those are jumpers. Check the motherboard and in white lettering on the green circuit board near those jumpers, find the clr pswd jumper.
If you find the clr pswd jumper, see if this works...
Move the clr pswd jumper over one pin. Looking at the picture, it looks like the jumper can only go one pin over to the left.
Plug in and turn on the PC. Now the BIOS password should be cleared.
Shut down and unplug the PC.
Move the clr pswd jumper back to its original position.
Plug in and turn on the PC.
