Computer Beeps on Startup

Hey my name is Gal and usually I won't try to fix those kind of problems but now I have to.
So maybe like 6 months ago (yes I know this was a long time ago but I still want to fix this) I downgraded my Windows 10 Pro computer to Windows 8.1 Pro. The problem is for some reason, as soon as it finished the update I just turned it off and I went to sleep. When I woke up I went to turn on my computer and everything was fine up until I heard those 2 loud [bleep] beeps from the computer and then there's a screen displaying both of my storage devices and it says on the top "American Megatrends" which is apparently my hardware company or something?
Anyway it asks me to "Press F1 for Setup" and "Press F2 to continue (or something like that)" when I press F2 it boots up the OS that I have currently (Windows 10 Pro) and when I press F1 it goes to the BIOS but it asks me for a password that I don't have. 
And inside the BIOS there was an option to disable this startup screen and it might also disable those horrible beeps. The problem is, I don't have the password (I think it said Administrator Password or something like that but I'm not sure). Even tho the computer does work perfectly fine, it's still a pain in the [bleep] to go through those beeps when I need to restart my computer. And sometimes when I need to restart at night, it's even more of pain to do that because they wake everybody up. My question is, can someone tell me how to remove / reset / change (without having the current password) the BIOS password? I've tried everything suggested online, even backdoor passwords for my computer.
I will even take only the solution to the beeps because right now I don't really need to make changes in the BIOS (although it will be wonderful if someone could suggest something!) I've tried also disconnecting the Motherboard battery which doesn't seem to work either (I've tried for different amounts of time every time) and I don't see anything on the Motherboard that says something about BIOS in there as someone online said you need to do something with it. Anyway, my computer is (I think) a Lenovo computer but it says on the case "ThinkCentre" but on startup it says "Lenovo".

Hello Gal El,


As per the GTG Terms of Use no assistance will be offered with getting around passwords.


  • Due to the nature of online help we are not able to verify ownership, and will not be able to help bypass or recover any user passwords, cd keys, license codes, serial numbers, etc.


While we will not help you with getting around passwords we can advise you as to how you can have this resolved using legitimate means, take the computer to a reputable tech local to you or have them come to you, you will need proof of ownership such as the sales invoice, picture ID such as a driving licence/passport and proof of your address such as a recent utility bill.
