    ummm ive instelled lots of harddrives and reformatted and never ben asked for a bios password.. but if it helps there are some programs out there you might also try clearing the cmos or removing the cmos battery. i really hope you arent trying to hack a stolen comp.

    Senior is right... change the Cmos jumper hit the start switch once and the n change it back.
    [i]*note - some Mobos only have solder pads, but with a paperclip you can jump them and use this trick*
