Another to reset the password .
If the password was entered for the Bios (that is, right when you turn the PC on and NOT loading Windows, You can reset the BIOS in the following way. It requires a little toolwork and inside the case work though it is an easy fix. This fix requires a little BIOS knowledge and someone familiar with the insides of a computer case though. Make sure the PC is completly OFF! (unplug or use switch on Power supply)
Open the case, by unscrewing or unsnapping the side of the case and get access to the inside of the PC. Ground yourself out to the PC by either connecting a piece of naked wire from your hand to the metal walls of the case or use a ground clip from your local PC store. Next, find the little round battery that looks like a watch battery and looking around you should see a jumper set on a 3 pin point. It should say on the Mother board "reset" or something like that. Move the jumper to the other exposed pin wait a few seconds and return it to its original position. If you have a Mobo manual it will show you exactly where on the board this jumper is located. you can also get this info from the boards website under manuals. Plug everything back in or switch on leaving the side off the case and turn on the PC. If it boots, your all set and close up the case. If not, close everything up and contact the board maker to get the proper BIOS Reset procedure for that particular model. This procedure usually works though. Sometimes there is no jumper but a couple of blank solder pads instead. use a bent paperclip to do the same reset. This also resets the BIOS itself (thus removing the password), so if you made any changes to the BIOS, you'll have to enter the setup program and make the changes you priviously made.

There is a version of Knoppix (Linux) that can fix your problem. It requires you to burn a bootable CD, so you may have to have someone else do that for you. Here's their web page: http://www.knoppix-std.org/index.html (Click on the FAQ to read about it) 1) Burn the cd image (knoppix-std-XX.iso) to a CD. 2) Make sure that your machine can boot to CD. (hint: check the BIOS settings) 3) Reboot the machine with the CD in the CD-ROM drive. 4) Welcome to Knoppix-STD. Play nice. Once you boot your computer with this CD, you need to run some commands (and it gets rather technical here). Please read the readme file at: http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/README.txt (I know, it's a foreign address, but it is only a text document and I've checked it for "problems".) He explains how to use "chntpw". This utility is very handy and I've used it on a Windows 2000 and a Windows XP machine. There is another bootable CD with a different program to use. Look at: http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/ I can't guarentee this one works at all or doesn't have any malicious code in it.

To reset the BIOS password, you need to remove open your computer CPU or your laptop to remove the CMOS battery and return it back again. By doing it, it will reset the BIOS password and will run your computer on usual way.
If he set a password in the BIOS, this can easily be solved by unplugging the computer from the wall, opening it up, and removing the CMOS battery (a flat, lithium "button cell" battery on the main system board inside), for 30 seconds before putting it back.
If this is a Windows password we're talking about, it may be tricky getting inside. Since you're giving it to someone else, why not locate the Windows Recovery Disks, and boot the computer up with them in the driver, re-install windows? Might be safer in the long run, as it will erase everything, and give the child a computer with a clean slate. Unfortunatly, if this is done- then everything your son saved on the computer will be erased clean, and be unrecoverable.
