You could try removing CMOS battery for a while.

Note that this will reset BIOS to default settings.


What's the time?

Don't know whether you have a PC or laptop. Whatever you have to open the case.

In a PC it is usually a coin sized battery clipped into the motherboard. This might help (although it is geared to replacement):

I'm less sure about laptops but know that you MUST remove the main battery before looking inside.

There's the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard that you can remove temporarily that will clear the password. If you don't know it's location, you can always consult your manual.

Don't forget to unplug before resetting CMOS jumper, then switch back before plugging back in.
