SOURCE: cmos password lockout
if this is a bios password lockout, you can try removing the CMOS Battery, for a couple of minutes to reset to factory default.
or using a password finding utility.
I have a CD that can do this, providing your DVD Drive will boot first.

Thats a Power On Password...I believe the only way that you can get around/reset/disable it...is by taking out the battery out of the Cmos. I will be looking for more ways other then that but thats one that i know works...
If you would like to attempt it...i dont recommend it for the no computer people...look up fourms and see if others have had the same problem or if people have taken the computer apart and replaced the cmos battery

This is the procedure for a desktop and I'm sure it will work for a laptop. Your CMOS holds the password in memory and this memory is backed up by a battery. Remove this battery, wait a minute or so and re-fit the battery. The password is gone. To save a lot of typing, have a read of this post [http://murfsgarage.cybertechhelp.com/cmos.htm ]
