Normally once you enter the correct password and get into the setup, you just have to delete the existing one and save...it shouldn't ask you anymore after that...

laptop I guess? Take it to the nearest service center for that brand and have them remove it. Make sure you have the original proof of purchase with you. It will cost you, chalk that up to experience.

If there is a BIOS password and I know what it is, if I want to get rid of it, I change it, enter the old password when asked, and just press ENTER for the new password. This should change it to nothing and the BIOS should not prompt you for a blank password.

If you can do this yourself, the service centre will probably charge you x amount for doing the same thing, which will take them less than 30 seconds once accessing the change password option.
