Sorry, what kind of password do you mean — may be, set in BIOS? If so, the simplest workaround is just to clear the CMOS memory (and so return it to default state, with emty default password) by removing the battery for short time; alternatively, some motherboards allow to do that by shorting a jumper (see the board manual).

Or if you can boot the computer and just cannot enter BIOS setup (because of the password), I can recommend you the CmosPwd program (btw, it is free).
