It sounds as if this is a BIOS password request.
Has anyone been changing setting in the BIOS recently?
Occasionally, static or electrical interference can cause a BIOS password to reset to it's default.
Bypassing the BIOS password is not easy, but is possible. First of all, I would suggest you try some of the common manufacturers default passowrda. You can find lists here and here.
Failing that, there are software programs available to recover/reset lost BIOS password or you can manually reset the BIOS. Details of how you do this are here and here.
If you are not 100% sure what you are doing, I would not advise you to reset your BIOS. There are setting in here that you will need to set in order for your computer to work properly. Wrong values could prevent it from working at all, or could even cause permanent damage.
Google for 'reset bios password' - You'll find lots more information...
Hope this helps,
