Who's motherboard is it? have you not set a password for the bios.

this is my brothers pc,we think the password was wet by spyware and we cant get into the bios to set the pc to boot from disk to reformat it

No spyware is able to change bios level passwords to my knowledge.

may have been set by my father when he built it but he cannot remeber if he put a password on it or not,this is a very good pc and it would be a shame if we cannot get it fixed

A lot of BIOS manufacturers have backdoor passwords that will let you in if you don't know the original. click here and scroll down to find your BIOS manufacturer then try the passwords in the list and see if any of them work.

What needs fixing that means you have to get into the BIOS? If the system is operating normally, then you shouldn't need to get into the BIOS anyway.

One more password - if by any chance it's an RM computer or BIOS then the BIOS password is RM. We used to deal with these at work and every one that came in had a BIOS password set and we always had to clear it by typing RM or rm as the password.

tried reformatting to clear the drive but unable to set to boot from cd now to reinstall windows

To clear the bios password takes just a few seconds, for virtually any motherboard and you don't need any codes.

If stephen0205 can give the forum a valid reason why he needs to get into the bios, then the forum may provide the information.
