Your hard disk did not set your BIOS password. BIOS passwords are of little or no value to the average person and there is no reason to set one for a private owned computer. If you did set your password and then forgot it and now need into your setup - open the case, find the battery and remove it. Wait 5 minutes and reinstall it. Turn on your computer and the BIOS will reset itself to the original default settings. You will have to set the time.
hi there, try booting from windows cd that fits the version you've installed, goto repair process and let it work.reboot in safe mode from harddisk, when possible. Does it work now? - If yes, reboot in normal mode...

What operating system you are using before installing windows xp.
If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98.
if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover.
If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly.
But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup.
