you will need to disconnect the cmos battery for a few seconds to allow the bios settings to revert to default, reconnecting the cmos battery will allow you to boot up without a password, howver any changes which were made to bios settings will be lost....have you tried pressing f8 while booting, then selecting the option "last known good configuration" ?

If you where the CMOS battery is, there's beside it a jumper inserted in two of the 3 pins(left pin and middle pin). Remove the jumper from its original position and with it short the middle pin and right pin. This resets the CMOS ROM to its default settings minus the password. Return the jumper to its original position as before. Reboot the computer.
