You will need to reset your BIOS to remove the password (and all other settings will be reverted to factory values). This operation required to unplug the computer, open the case, remove the battery from the motherboard, and take it back after 5 minutes.

If you think you can do this, then we may continue :)

Sorry to interfere, but removing the battery won't do a damn on modern PCs. Better RTFM for MoBo, open the case, look for CMOS flush(clear) jumper, put it into "Clear CMOS" position, then power on the PC, wait a minute, then power off and return the jumper to "Normal work" position. Now all BIOS settings are reverted to defaults and password is gone :)
