how can i remove bios password

Enter the correct password to access the BIOS.
Then go to the "Security" section of the BIOS and delete the password.
Exit, saving changes.

If Tigsounds advice does not work because you do not know the password then you must reset the BIOS, but you will also lose any custom settings you have. To reset the BIOS you must open up the PC and do one of the following:

1. Move the BIOS reset jumper to erase then put it back to the original position. Download a service/upgrade manual to find the jumper if it not clearly labeled on the mother board.

2. Or unplug the PC and remove the battery from the motherboard for 5-10 minutes.

When you power up your PC you will need to go into the BIOS and reset any custom settings. This will also erase plug-and-play settings, so do not be surprised if Windows finds new hardware on the first boot.

And all this time I was under the impression that password cracking was against the rules of conduct.

I may have interpreted the rules incorrectly, but resetting a BIOS password is not the same as 'cracking' one. You must have physical access to a PC and open the case to reset the BIOS; it is not something you can do remotely or covertly.

I have personally known people who purchased or were given a used PC with a BIOS password or had a joker put a password on their BIOS.

Or.. sure be nice to find out how to clear the password on a stolen computer?
I won't help with password problems, unless it is simply how to enter the password, or where to enter the password.
