Surely there must be a jumper somewhere on teh board that will allow
you to reset the BIOS totally.  Which should have the effect of
clearing this password?  I will admit, though, I haven't seen this
sort of password before.  I have come across the normal BIOS security
password that in effect sets up a BIOS admin.

Something has to boot up, albeit at a very low level, in order for the
security password to be enabled in the first place.

What make is the BIOS?
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but,  PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
