A bios password prevents access to the bios for unauthorized users, and while it does a good job at keeping users out, it should not be taken as a 100% secure protection from attacks. Sometimes, you may also run into issues after having set up a password to protect the computer's bios. You may have forgotten the password, or it may have been set by an ex-employee who no longer works in the company.
Theguide "how to bypass your bios password" explains in detail how you can bypass the bios password or remove it altogether to start anew. So, if you are in need, take a look and try the available methods.
Update: The website the article was originally published on is no longer available on the Internet. As with every website that is taken offline, its contents also end up in nirvana with little chance to access them again once the website has been offline for some time.
Thankfully though you find many other resources that provide you with information, guides and tips on how to bypass motherboard BIOS passwords.
I suggest you check those guides out instead as they can help you bypass the password of a Bios in case the password is not known anymore.
