Is the password box part of the logon or something before that (such as in the BIOS)?

If it is part of logon (as opposed to "before the Windows login") then the other suggestions should be what you need.

If it is part of the BIOS, you will have to change it there, or do a BIOS reset.

Can you post a photo of that box? Maybe if we have a picture of it we could possibly identify what type of logon box that is.

Enter syskey from a cmd prompt or in the run command.

Click "OK", then "Update". You should now have a "Startup Key" window where you can set a startup password. Remove the password and click on "OK". You should get a "Success" window, and after that when you bootup you shouldn't need to enter a syskey password anymore.
