Same thing happened to me, what i did was i cut the computer off, cut it back on as soon as it came on i hit F2 several times until the screen popped up for administrative defaults and so forth. go to Main--it should say :
QUIET BOOT: ENABLED
POWER ON DISPLAY: AUTO
NETWORK BOOT: ENABLED
F12 BOOT MENU: DISABLED
D2D RECOVERY: ENABLED
SATA MODE: IDE MODE

*** I went to F9 setup defaults hit yes then hit F 10 yes again
'
UNDER SECURITY--
PASSWORD ON BOOT: DISABLED --
** DO EXACT SAME THING F9 YES, F 10 YES SAVE

****THEN THE MAIN THING TO DO IS:


UNDER EXIT: GO DOWN TO LOAD SETUP DEFAULTS AND SAVE, THEN GO DOWN TO SAVE CHANGES-SAVE AND HIT F10 TO SAVE AND EXIT AND IT WILL REMOVE THE BIOS PASSWORD ON START UP AND WILL GO BACK TO NORMAL.

If it is that easy to reset a Bios password what is the point of having one . You might as well boot straight into the system and rely on the system password.
