You're very welcome.
Sometimes it just happens.
Otherwise one of your kids set a password in the BIOS.
If you have to keep entering that code to get into the PC, grant them amnesty if anyone 'fesses up,' and gives you the password.
Otherwise, you can try these general instructions to clear the BIOS P/W...
Use your unlock passcode to enter the BIOS
Go to the security menu
Disable all passwords that are enabled
If asked for current password - type your unlock passcode.
For new password, just press ENTER key
Repeat the same for verify password column.
Then leave the BIOS by saving & exit option to save the changes.
