Check the manual of your motherboard. There is a jumper that once removed, will clear the BIOS password

The above assumes the computer is a Desktop model. Laptops work differently.

There is no way to clear the password without erasing the BIOS settings stored in the CMOS chip. To do that, you need to cut the power to the chip either by removing the battery or using the clearCMOS jumper. Power cord should be unplugged when doing so.

You can also use a program called KillCMOS, but it has to be run from DOS.
