Is there a way or software that i can use to remove a Bios password on a hp laptop?


op why post at all ,on an unstated PC? why make it so hard?
for the HELPER ?
HP made PC for over 33 years.
1000s of models.
what might be your model.?
here Ill do the 33 year history fast.

1: no bios pW in the beginning 1984
2: now PW but has jumper clip protecting other posters, idea.
takes moving the clip reset then back, the service manual at HP covers all this,but i cant point you there, lacking what you own.

3: now HP adds back door secret PW number (ask HP)
each model has secret number, and no more CLIPS (jumpers)
the new security rules kick in.
first with power books and elitebooks only the all PC made.

4: 2012, HP conforms to UEFI laws and needs a spec disk file
to burn the BIOS back using your UUID, number.
why post lacking the full laptop name.
get x10 better answers and 10x better.

some Laptops that battery out RTC CMOS coin cell takes the whole PC LT dismantled, not fun when it's hopeless for you model
how cruel is that? no? sorry but facts are facts. unbending.

model is seen here. on the tag.
line 1. ,3 and 5
found on bottom of laptoo
inside the huge battery well on bottom. or
or on newer LT, its only in the BIOS setup screens(ouch)


this is called a service tag

tag_service1-2cqcbxtpg2olzjl0vtbaqub2-1-0.jpg ask hp for help on newer PC or its hopeless. I promise you
here is real HP

How do i locate the hp probook 4520s BIOS password jumper on the motherboard


4520s.
you failed because of one reason, you asked on fixya not HP'
why ask here, there are no HP(few) folks here, they are all over at HP, real forum.?
bios resets are tricky,
the new rules changed with UEFI BIOS and or TPM chips added.
back in 2007 the mobo had reset jumper, (mine desktop does)
but not my 2008 elitebook laptop, due to the TPM rules.

first the link to your books
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-ProBook-4520s-Notebook-PC/4145198

those cover most issues, you will have. all by HP direct,
page 126 here is not too clear;.
the answer is here
your PC is fully locked now, there is no way to reset it .
without HP direct intervention (fixya can never ever do that)
the send you a special binary flash file that only works on YOUR PC (a fact and is by DESIGN)

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-Notebooks/Probook-4545s-Bios-Password-reset/m-p/6350164#M147169


never use a BIOS password, unless you write it down and hide the paper in a book you know, where it is. (got books?) i know books are now (dead technology but)>?
if you guess and start flashing BIOS, you will BRICK THIS PC.

I dont remember the password bios HP pavilion zd8000


Two ways to reset the Bios/CMOS password are as follows: Basically option number is recommended. 1. Mechanically, by removing all power to the Bios/CMOS thereby forcing it to reset itself to its stored defaults. You can do this by removing the CMOS battery from *********** board or by resetting a jumper on the motherboard itself (referred to as a "clear CMOS" jumper)
2. By using a program to either locate and identify the password. This programs are referred to as password by-pass utilities or cracks.

Hello : my problem is i have laptop acer model 5230z : i cant access to the bios becuas is encrypted in passwoed and i try all way that found in web put is no result thank you i hope be help me


Hi,

There are four common categories of solutions to remove or reset a BIOS password and here are the details on how to go about resetting your BIOS password.

Manufacturer Backdoor BIOS Password

Most of the BIOS makers have set a backdoor password on the older computer models. That is the master password for BIOS. To reset BIOS passwords first you need to check the manufacturer of your computer's BIOS. Most computers have BIOS include AMI,
IBM, Award, and Phoenix. These are the most common BIOS. You can unlock your locked BIOS using this master password. It works, no matter what the user sets the password to. Many popular computer and laptop manufacturers such as HP and DELL lock the BIOS because they want to protect their machine's most sensitive areas (those areas which have warranty) from their customers. These passwords are usually used by computer technicians for testing and repairing.

Reset the jumper that holds the password

Open the computer and locate on the motherboard the BIOS password jumper. The jumper is usually jumper 1 and often labeled as PSWD, PWD, CLRPWD, CLEAR, JCMOS1, CLR, CLEAR CMOS, PASSWD, or PASSWORD. Normally you would have 3 pins and to reset the password you just need to put the jumper on the 2 and 3 pins leaving pin 1 empty. After you move the jumper, turn the computer on to clear the password, then once password removed turn it off and put the jumper back to its original position.

Removing the CMOS Battery to reset the BIOS to default

Switch off your computer, and open up the case. You'll see a circular metallic silver item on motherboard. This is called CMOS Battery. Remove it carefully, and leave it out for about 2 minutes. This act will remove the CMOS memory which contains BIOS password. Set the CMOS battery back and switch on the computer. Restore the CMOS configuration as default. Your BIOS password has been cleared now.

Using third party software utility to reset BIOS password

To reset BIOS you can use third party software like Kill CMOS which wipes out CMOS, or CmosPwd which is a BIOS utility. Hiren's Boot CD has a few programs including the above two that will help you to reset the password. Here is a link to Hirens Boot CD website http://www.hirensbootcd.org/. To download the latest version, click on the Download link on the left side and go to the last page. You will need a CD writer to put the content on a blank CD.

Please let me know whether this works or not.

Can anyone help me on how to reset the Bios password to default on an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop? I have an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop. It is booting but it cant go beyond bios boot and i cant enter setup as it is...


A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

How do i remove bios password


There are many known ways to reset / remove / bypass the password:

* By removing the CMOS battery
* By using the motherboard jumper
* By using MS DOS command
* By using software
* By using Backdoor BIOS password
Almost all motherboards use a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

The battery is located on the motherboard. It looks like a little watch battery, round. Take it out, what 5 minutes, then put back in. That will clear the BIOS password.

Help clear bios


When you remove the battery from the motherboard wait after few seconds (30), reboot your computer without the battery and press the BIOS key (F1 or F10 or DELL key) will not ask you any password. Turn it off and Then put back the battery.
