    If you are talking about BIOS password resetting then You can clear out
    the password by resetting the CMOS.Flashing a BIOS should reset all of
    the BIOS settings to the factory defaults.

    See:-
    How can I gain access to a Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 computer if I forgot
    the administrator's password? How can I reset the administrator's
    password if I forgot it?
