It's called a boot up password, generally set in the BIOS to keep people out of their computer. Most of the time they do not magically come on by themselves.

since we cannot verify the veracity of your request, we will not offer any assistance with bypassing passwords on your computer. you may very well have a sincere need here but we cannot discerne between those that really need help getting past their own passwords or those who are trying to crack a system

if you have any issues with this please PM a moderator or an admin
