Here are some guide to "break in"
- http://www.wikihow.com/Break-a-BIOS-Password
- http://www.pcguide.com/ts/x/comp/mbsys/cmosClearCMOS-c.html

This looks like the site of the MoBo, maybe it has hints in the manual, I can't read the manual due to missing fonts....

I found someone who cracked it, so I was able to get into bios.  It's strange that the bios reset does not remove the password.  Maybe it's a special bios where the password is part of the defaults.

A simple google search:

"barracuda default bios password"

found the possible ones.

If you create your own boards, or use specific ones in bulk, you can allways order them with special setups.
In stead of an empty default password it can be anything...
