I cannot change my boot order

I have an Asus hl-l2340dw computer and I'm using windows 7 as an OS.  I would like to switch back to Ubuntu for awhile.  BUT I forget my Asus password.  I repeatedly tap the F2 key to boot from CD but apparently my boot order is wrong and it boots from my hard drive.  It won't let me change the boot order since I forget the Asus password.  What can I do?

I would say you would need to contact ASUS support with the purchase receipt for assistance in changing or recovering the password.

You're going to have to remember your password.  A bios password is there to prevent changing the boot order.
