If it happened after the installation of Win 7, then board malfunction if not very likely. Do you get any video on start up. The Bios should be displayed fine as it is not related to Win 7 OS. However if no display during startup would mean somehow your BIOS got corrupted during the installation. Flashing the BIOS might help
you can remove this password by removing the bios battery. remove the cap where the ram goes... and you will have very easy access to the board. unplog the cable that goes from the bios battery to the board (make sure the pc is off and main battery is out.) plug back in the cable and boot your pc.
If it cannot finish POST then you have a mother board problem. You state you reset the BIOS. Can you get to the BIOS menu? If you can then the problem is not motherboard errors but hard drive boot sector problems, depending on OS used. If the BIOS has been updated, then it is possibly an incorrect version or corrupt. If you can reflow the soldering, remove the BIOS chip and fit a known good one. That should fix your problem. Hope this helps.
Did you refash the bios?, you may have corrupted the bios rom chip. They can be bought online if you google your brand of board, ebay has a lot of that kind of thing. That's the cheapest fix that you can try, if you overclocked it or somehow it just fried the main processor, it could be dead, Also check to see if you lost a jumper off the board, your manual or online should have a schematic, and make sure your processor is seated properlly, it may just have popped out. Make sure the wires didn't fall off the start switch also. Just unplug it and open it up and recheck everything to see that it's all plugged in right. Sometimes a wire or jumper will just fall out, hope that's all it is
Have you tried clearing the CMOS by removing the battery with PSU off and then shorting the 'reset cmos" (or similar) pins on mobo?
