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.
