Disconnect the electric. Take off the side panel then remove silver cmos battery from the motherboard for 5 minutes then replace. This will clear the bios password and allow you to change the settings or change booting method for a reinstallation.

How to remove bios password

What brand of PC are you using? If Dell, there is a hidden backdoor. Go into the BIOS (or setup screen) and navigate to the screen that allows you to set a password. Try inputting "admin" (without quotes) when you select it. As a new password, type in no password (don't type in a password) for the first and conformation password.

Hope I helped!

you can remove that BIOS battery and you must to insert new one of battery BIOS. Usually you can use CR2032 battery. You can buy in eletronic shop. And now, you can enter your BIOS and set them all.
Oh yeah, definitely there is three password in computer from BIOS.
One, come from BIOS password, if you want to enter and make a setting for BIOS;
Two, come from Harddisc password, if you give a password to your HDD;
Three, come from operating system, like a Windows, Linux, ...etc.
Where is password for your question?

As stated you are talking about two different passwords. Bios password would be at the begining of boot up and accessing the bios from hitting F2 or DEL or some key combo during boot.

The windows password would be needed when you attempt to log onto your computer. This screen will have the windows logo and an icon for the user name.

You said it brings up Admin and password, I assume that you are looking at the windows login screen with the admin name requesting a password to log on.

How do i get my siemens v2010 laptop out of hibernation.the screen has suddenly gone dark.the computer turns on and is fine, but you can only just see whats on the screen

You might have to restart the computer if it is stuck in hibernation. The best thing is to go to your settings and turn the Hibernation setting and sleep settings off. Go into your display settings to find this. Also when your computer starts look for the BIOS option to show on the screen to check the BIOS and make sure it is turned off there. To get to the BIOS hit the DEL key or one of the F keys to get into the BIOS. Do not password the BIOS of your Laptop. This can cause a lot of problems if you forget this password. It can not be recovered easy.
