I suppose, this password is stored in the BIOS's memory, called CMOS, like all the other OS-independent hardware settings.

Google it: "how to clear cmos", and follow the instructions. Beware, this will clear all your mentioned hardware settings.

Good luck.

If it is a regular computer instead of a laptop you can remove your Power on password
by simply moving over the jumper to the next pin that is next to the computer battery. If you are using a laptop then you probably will need to get a boot floppy that has a password reset/crack program or command.
