If you mean safe mode, as soon as you turn on the computer start pressing the F8 button about once a second. That should bring you to the safe mode option.

Actually, if you do not know the password it is best not to guess because 3 wrong guesses would result to losing the data on your hard drive forever.
the simplest way to remove a bios setup utility password is by removing the cmos battery. computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.
1. open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. please refer to the picture below. Some computers have this part standing upright.
Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it. There are many different ways to remove a CMOS battery but the most common way on newer computers can be seen in the picture below.
2. Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 – 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.
3. Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto “Load BIOS Defaults” in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

You can either find the CMOS backup battery and take it out for a while to let the memory discharge, or look online to find a program which will crack the Phoenix password (these do exist, I had to use them when I was in business fixing computers).
