Hi Nick,
Welcome to TSG!
As far as the password on the BIOS is concerned, it's going to be a "Crap-Shoot". There isn't anything you can do except try different combination of numbers and letters. But, the wright way to do this is to - remove the BIOS battery for about 5-10 seconds - and then replace it back into it's socket. By doing this, the password protection will be remove on your CMOS settings. The drawback to this is the settings to everything else will have been wiped clean. Therefore, you will need to "Load Defaults" and then tweak the BIOS for your motherboard and the other goodies that are attached to your motherboard.
If this is NEW to you, rest assured it's NOT all that BAD.
Break out your note and pens, and try different settings as you work with your motherboard. Check to see how the computer behaves after the OS takes over. If you need to change anything, then re-enter the BIOS and change the neccessary commands.
Good Luck to you. *Al*
