There are 2 methods doing that (I assume you forgot this password).

1. Hardware (easiest one):
a. Switch off power (plug out power cable or switch off power supply)
b. open your PC box
c. locate CMOS battery on motherboard (the largest part)
it will look exactly like that (round)

d. Just take it out and wait 30 seconds
e. plug it in. BIOS data will reset (password as well)

#2. Sofware
You may use !BIOS to reset bios password. Download + instructions you will find on this website.

Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!!

When you forget the bios password the only one way to reset the bios password is to reset the jumpers on the motherboard.
For that you will have to open your system, and the jumper is located on the motherboard you need to reseat that.
That will take your bios to default and will fix your problem.

Sounds like it could be a graphics card problem problem is it's integrated so part of your motherboard unless you have installed a graphics card.If you have a graphics card in it take it out plug your monitor into the other graphics port and enable on board graphics in your BIOS/ integrated peripherals by pressing F12 key,..if it now works you know your graphics card is broke.If you havn't a graphics cardin it your motherboard needs replacing.
