"Enter Password" black screen login

    "Enter Password" black screen login

    Hey guys,

    I tried booting up my PC which has Windows 8 installed and it was working fine until yesterday.

    It has a "Enter Password" screen upon start-up and I think it's a virus because it only lets me enter 10 characters and even though, I do put in the correct password, it still says it's incorrect. The computer also shuts down after 3 unsuccessful attempts.

    I have attached a picture of the screen.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I found out the issue is a BIOS password. I'm looking into making a HirensBootCD to get rid of it. Any suggestions?
