SOURCE: cmos password reset
You can get around this however it's not to easy. You would have to take the unit apart and locate the BIOS chip, this chip needs to pulled out, aswell as removing the CR2032 battery which stores time and date on the computer. Leave both of these removed for a few minutes and re-install. This should wipe the password out. Like I said though it's not something that's easily done. Good Luck Hope this helps. L8R

Are you talking about windows password or system password? On windows password that is easy. During startup press F8 and it will ask to boot into safe mode. Go to control panel and creat a new user and password and write it down, then delete the one you have trouble with.
If it is the system password, that another story you will have to take it to a shop where the will take it apart and do what is called a cmos reset password. It is located on the motherboard, very tricky to do and should not be done by unexperience person. Otherwise you can damage the main board.
