I'm not so sure.   Unless you were in the bios and added a password.  I think it highly unlikely some malware could have updated your bios settings.  Nor is very likely some hardware issue caused the bios password to get set.  

It sounds more like some fake messages some of my customers get from malware infections.  When do you get this message?  After power on?  After Windows starts?  After the Windows welcome screen opens?
