I recommend trying the free service from Zip Cloud. It's currently our users' favorite backup and storage solution and will save you headaches down the line.
You can get it direct from this link http://goo.gl/rFYDxc. (This link will open the Zip Cloud homepage.)
Csabi. Contact HP and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/contact_us.html When talking to the HP rep ask to escalate your service request.

Hi,Skipped BIOS version F.61 rev.A which contained Intel Video BIOS update. After installing the latest BIOS version F.63 rev.A, the VBIOS version is still the same according to the HWINFO32 program. Is it possible to update the video BIOS separately, and how to do that? Yet I'm not sure if the VBIOS is worth updating. Any help? Thanks.Read other answers

How do I disable the touchpad on my ProBook 6460b? I do a lot of wordprocessing, and having the cursor relocate whever I accidentally brush the touchpad is near crippling. I've googled, and checked through the forums here and elsewhere, and none of the recommendations I've found seem to apply. -there is no little white spot/button at the upper left corner to double tap. -When I go to Control Panel>Mouse, the touchpad is listed as "PS-2 compatible mouse" and there is no option I can find to disable it. Under Device Manager, I have the option to Uninstall the driver, but not to disable it. Also, somebody tell the HP hardware designers that having an easily identifiable switch, a hardware one preferably, to disable the touchpad is a HUUUUUUUGE plus. The lack of such presents a clear danger of making me never buy HP again.

I bought this probook used, it turns on & runs okay on the AC charger/adapter, but will not turn on or run on just the battery alone. . The battery says it is charging ok and is now 100% charged , it still will not turn on without the adapter. Is this a laptop problem or could it be a bad battery?
HP's Support Assistant has a Battery Check tool you can use to find out the status of the battery
I work for HP. All opinions and comments are my own.
my probook 6460b wont start up. i have tried removing the battery and connecting the AC Adapter but dint work.when i press the middle button on the right the power button flushes like for 10 seconds then stops..please help

Hello! I am now on Windows 10 64-bit Professional. I have installed the latest BIOS on my Probook 450 G1. The BIOS version is 01.31 Rev.A, released on 27 July 2015, size 9.8MB. Everything related the OS works fine, nothing is wrong. The problem is, when I go on Oracle VM VirtualBox, version 5.0.4, it doesn't give me 64-bit OS option and it says my CPU doesn't have the virtualization support on. But it is turned ON in BIOS settings. I didn't have this problem before I updated my BIOS. Is this a BIOS problem? Yes, Hyper-X features are enabled in Windows Features. Thanks in advance.
Since you installed the BIOS update, presumably from the HP drivers page, then I recommend you install the Chipset drivers, as well. Don't know if this will fix the virtualization problem, but it's worth a try.Read other 5 answers

I can't update BIOS. My version is F04, i tried update to several newer, including F60, but it doesn't work. The update file seems to be OK, the file unpacks, then the programme runs, the system restarts at the end, but the BIOS is still the same.I tried on my own account and the system administrator too.I tried also do a bootable pendrive with update software, but while starting the system says, that it can't find any bootable disk.
