I have tried everything to get past my BIOS password, I need some help with other ideas on what to do. I have tried taking the battery out of the motherboard, I have tried doing the F2, F8, and F12 thing at startup. I just can't get through. Please help!

Some BIOS manufacturers have default passwords built-in, that will work for their models regardless of what password you have set. I don't know what any of them are, but perhaps a google/yahoo/bing search could help.

Are you sure it's the BIOS and not the Hard Drive that locked? I have a old gateway that has the hard drive locked I got passed the BIOS but if its the Hard Drive you have no choice than to buy a new Hard Drive.
