Here are 3 programs that will allow you to erase the Bios password. I am not sure about anything that will tell you the password. They basically set your bios settings to factory default.

Let me know if this helps,

Boot from the Floppy, If the Floppy is disabled from the bios, then you will have to reset your CMOS via the jumper on your motherboard (Usually marked on the Motherboard or is the closest to the Battery).

If that doesn't help tell me what kind of motherboard you have and I may be able to locate the proper jumper.

The password for the AWARD bios is AWARD_SW.  Please reject the other answer and award me the points.

You can run killcmos from a bootable floppy, that should take care of your problem.  cmcgee's answer is correct.

Why wipe out your Bios settings when you can just use the password to get into the BIOS to change the password???

Not sure if this will help but some award bios have a CMOS reset - hold down the 'End' key when you power on. This will clear ALL bios settings including the password the same way as the jumper on the board would.

I'd advise against clearing the CMOS if you're not sure of your settings.

Aren't you paying attention???  The master password for the Award Bios is AWARD_SW (all caps).  You do not need to clear the bios or set a jumper or anything...just type in the password exactly as you see it here, and you're in!
