Most BIOS's allow three attempts and then lock but simply restarting the PC will reset the counter.  Are you looking for something that disables the PC completely if a wrong password is used?  If so have you planned how the legitimate user gets back in after this?

You can't do anything about changing how BIOS password queries are done - they're part of the firmware.  It would require a different custom BIOS.
