Try admin or just hit enter. If not remove the battery from the mother board for 5 minutes and see whether it helps. If you haven't entered a password on BIOS there shouldn't be any problem. Also try deleting if you have any other users accounts on the system.

Since this came to me as a desktop question I will give you that set of instructions. you will need to power off the machine and unplug it. Remove the side panel of the computer (or top panel depending on the model). When you look at the motherboard you will see a CR2032 battery that powers the BIOS chip to allow it to retain it's settings such as password, date, and time. There may also be a jumper on the board (a little plastic square with copper in it) to reset the BIOS. You will be looking in the same general area of the battery for this jumper and it should be labeled CMOS or Reset.
If the jumper is present you will need to use it to reset the BIOS. If using the jumper doesn't reset the password then you will need to remove the Battery I previously mentioned and let the computer sit without power or battery for several minutes.
If this still does not remove your password (or if you would like to try this first) you can try to use a manufacturer override password. On a Compaq system the override should be Compaq. That does have a capitals C and the password is case sensitive.
Best of luck!
