Hi there.
Try clearing the cmos fdbf23f.jpg. move the plastic jumper the alternative position,\015\012power the pc up (Nothing will happen if you have it correct, then put\015\012it back in its original position and try to boot the machine again, password should be removed.
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
Open the case and find the CLEAR CMOS jumper, change it's position and let it stay for about 20 seconds, the revert it to the original position.

You can instead unplug the pc from the power outlet, open it, remove the battery from the moderboard(it's a coin sized battery that's easy to see and usually has some latch to slide it out),let the pc rest for about 2 minutes or so, and put the battery back into  its place. close the pc side door, and Voilà! it should be back to life.
it will take a little longer than usual on its first boot and might beep a few, it's all ok.
