If you can remove the battery from the motherboard and allow it to discharge that will reset the password. Otherwise post your motherboard type / make and one of us will let you have a master password for the bios.

ismahwhati, you shouldnt accept an answer until you are sure that its solves your problem. You may now have to repost this question in order for it to receive the correct attention. Your motherboard type should appear at POST (i.e. when you start up the machine) in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
