I had the same problem.I tried setting the jumper to 2-3 position but it was of no use.Still it would ask for BIOS password. I tried by removing the CMOS battery for 1 whole day but still the condition remained unchanged. I even tried by holding the power switch for 30 seconds but of no help.Guys please help me..My Mobo is intel DH61WW.

System manufacturer and model?

 

BIOS passwords are set by the manufacturer of the system.

Unfortunately there is no way for those of us on the forum to know why someone needs to reset a bios password. It could be something completely innocent like having forgotten it or something less innocent, such as it isn't your system (we're not accusing, just pointing out the possibilities). Methods of resetting the Windows password are all over the net and easy to find. However, as hamluis points out the bios password is a security measure implemented by the manufacturer. You'll have to contact the manufacturer or the previous owner.. Sorry.

...or simply read up on  the documentation for said system and passwords on that system...which is supplied by the manufacturer at the respective manufacturer website.

 

Google...should be your tool of choice when seeking information such as you seem to want.

Hi

The manuals for Your System are located here

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000023731/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards.html

On page 43 of this manual it gives the connectors for the front panel. Any other information including Drive connectors and more are in this manual. Considering that the two of the SATA drive connectors are close to the others it is possible that You bumped one of them enough to disconnect the Boot drive.

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/desktop-boards/H61/DH61WW/DH61WW_ProductGuide03.pdf

 

These are right from Intel

Good Luck

Roger
