Are you talking about the administrator password in windows? If so it doesn't have to do anything with bios and you have reset the motherboard to factory settings.
To be able to install window xp or vista you will need to set the settings in bios to boot from CD,A,C in that sort of order so that the cd rom will boot. Place in the CD into your primary cd rom/dvd rom and exit saving changes to bios. When the computer goes to start up it will ask you to press any key to continue into installing windows. Follow all the prompts and you can select to install a new version without saving anything.
See how you go, I will be on live Chat on saturday GMT 10.00 time 8p,m onwards.

SOURCE: administrator password
If you don't have to enter a password to access the BIOS, you can go in and remove the requirement to enter a password on Bootup.
Otherwise you can unplug the computer from power, unplug the power supply, and then remove the battery on the Motherboard to clear any stored BIOS and Bootup passwords.
