If the password is the Windows password, the one with the userd icon displayed and Windows logo, then you need to reinstall Windows.

If instead the password pops up right when you turn on the computer, and it is a password with no user id, that pops up right at startup, that is the BIOS supervisor password, in that case to reset it you need to access the motherboard, to do this the laptop must be taken apart, and this job must be done at a repair shop , if you do not want to risk damaging the laptop.

If it is asking for a password upon startup then someone put a password on your CMOS. Unfortunately, unless you can find out what the password is, then the only way to clear it is to remove the battery in your motherboard. The battery is what keeps the information in CMOS when the computer is turned off.
