Eliminated admin password in boot, now can't get past blue screen of d

Big problem, when i first turned on my computer in the past i got a blue screen and needed to enter a password to get to the page that gave me an option of clicking on admin account or user account. To get rid of the first screen which was a hassle because i'm the only one who uses the computer i went into boot and got rid of the admin account password in boot .

Thought everything would be fine but upon finishing i now have the same blue screen that comes up just like before but now it won't accept any password and i can't get in.

Any ideas , yeah i know i screwed up.

It's the first screen that appears when pressing the power button with the enter password in the middle. I cant get past it to get into boot so i can set up a new password . Even control,alt, delete brings it right back and so does control ,shift, and esc

When you're saying Admin are you referring to the built-in hidden account ?

This sounds like a BIOS password. A BIOS password on a laptop is designed for security and is very secure. I believe the only solution is to contact the manufacturer.

I don't have a camera to take a pic but i called Asus and they said they couldn't help me, it must be a bios password issue and now i'm stuck.

To be honest i'm not sure if i did it by mistake or not. What happened is i entered a admin password by hitting the f2 button and also made a user account password at the same time, after about a month of using them i decided to eliminate the first password (you know the one you need to type in to get to the page that displays your admin account and user account).

I wanted to eliminate that first blue screen that pops up asking you for a password just to get to the screen that makes you choose between your admin account and user account so i went into bios again and removed the admin account by just hitting enter and then enter again to confirm the change.

To my surprise when i get out of the bios options screen i see the blue screen again asking for a password but this time no password works . I tried everything i could think of, hitting enter doesn't work, neither does using my most recent password that i deleted.

I can't get into bios or anything.
