@TP10101? 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 them to escalate your service request. Or download these files. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zu4kdgxm052l87d/AAAMi-kfX4AVH8oTCbsOM4X9a?dl=0 Insert clean USB flash drive. Then run USB Image tool. Choose the flash drive then click on RESTORE. After restore remove flash drive. Insert flash drive into locked laptop and boot. ?If HDD is installed remove before booting.? At C:\OUTPUT type CD.. ?Then hit enter? Type HPBR ?Then hit enter? First thing is to save your settings. Select #3 re-program. Press ?S? to save system information. Type HPBR and hit enter. Since your model is not listed select ?SHOTGUN.? After reboot repeat ?SHOTGUN? a second time. Let me know the result so I can update my list. Some instructions here. ?If you cannot boot from USB there are instructions to make a bootable HDD.? http://mazzifsoftware.blogspot.com/2014/01/hp-bios??-unlock-for-dos.html More help here.http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility?s=ad...

You must place a voice call to Dell support.  Be prepared to verify your ownership details and since the system is likely out of warranty, have  credit card handy - the call isn't free of charge outside of warranty.

PROBLEM. I have PHOENIX Bios 4.04 on an old Compaq Presario 7170. I'm selling this computer but I have forgotten the password to get into it.

This is such an old computer, I don't know where to start.

This page > http://www.labmice.net/articles/BIOS_hack.htm doesn't help too much.

I don't know where or what the CMOS battery looks like.

None of the backdoors work.

Don't know how to short a CMOS Jumper.

Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips,

 

Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you out.

 

As I understand the computer is asking to "power on password" and you need assistance with the same,

 

You would have to contact HP phone support for a hardware service as the motherboard may require a tattoo/Bios Flash.
