    Not to worry dude !!!

    There are many BIOS password revealer programs available. But if this is a passowrd (Supervisory or user... I m not sure) which doesn't help you boot uptill windows, then you can short the jumper settings on your mother boad.

    Steps:

    Turn of the PC power.
    1. Open the tower or cabinet case

    2. Locate the CMOS battery

    3. Somewhere around the battery, you may find a jumper inserted on a pair of pins. The pin base should have more than 2 pins.
    remove the jumper and place it on the other set of pins. for example, if the jumper is on 1 & 2 pin, then place it on 2 & 3 pins.

    4. Turn on the PC and wait for a few seconds (say 3-5 sec).

    5. Turn off the PC again and replace the jumper on the origianl pin pair (1 &2).

    6. Turn on the PC again to check if the passowrd exists.

    If the above steps doesn't help, try removing and replacing the CMOS battery. (Make sure the PC is turned off when removing the battery). Wait for 5 seconds before replaicng the CMOS battery.

    Note: Removing the CMOS battery will change the BIOS settings to default.

    Hope this helps you.

    The BEST way to reset the BIOS password is to remove the CMOS battery and place it again after a few minutes!
