Why would you password your BIOS and then not know the password? You must have known if you'd go to that extent that it is not recoverable because it is used mainly by companies to foil thieves.

You'll need to contact the PC maker to have them help you because we have no idea what your true relation is to the PC and they have ways of confirming this.

I'm assuming you know for sure by now this is a BIOS password and not a Windows password that keeps coming up when you try to Clean Install Windows 7 because you're not booting the installation media correctly? How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD

im sorry, gave a better description on Vista forums, i was hacked yesterday by a program call qoobox, stole everything, as for the password, i did a series of fresh installs, only to repeat them and while installing other needed software that is password protected, i got confused when i was in Bios and tried setting a password, but it wont accept it now after ive went back and reset the password to blank, and now i just found out aboout the no BIOS as a result of buying this 10dollar software....plus i got a list now of 11 passwords i wrote down but none work,everytime i go to login, it would prevent me by loading an updated driver, but i understand your concern, i just wish i would have known about this b4 i started hitting buttons

What do you mean you have no BIOS? Of course you have a BIOS. Reset it to defaults in BIOS setup. Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

If you can't enter BIOS setup due to password then you'll need to put in the last password you entered.

Why is support not helping you, it should take 5 minutes ?

Is this your personal home pc ?

Why are you using password/s on it, there is no reason to, and it only causes problems.

Where do you have a password ? Just the bios, the bios and windows or just windows ?

If you big brother built the computer then ask him for the password.
Somebody put the password there and did it for a reason.
