Q: HP Probook 6555b BIOS Admin Password Issue

Hi, Im trying to update the BIOS on my HP Probook 6555b, but get prompted for an admin password, which i do not know. I have removed the battery and the RTC battery, however when i start backup i get the below error and the default admin password gets restored. Is there a way to reset the Admin BIOS password please? The CMOS checksum is invalid. The CMOS will be reset to the default configuration and will be rebooted. Please check your BIOS Setup options to see if they changed.

hi, my hp probook 4540s bios admin passwod how remove or reset to load any usb  or boot active 

A:Hp4540 s probook bios admin password

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. If you do not know the existing password for BIOS or you have forgotten in, here are your options: - Consumer class notebooks :  try to enter the BIOS and enter the password wrong 3 times. System disabled message will appear with a code.Please, write down this system disabled code and visit www.bios-pw.orgEnter the code and you will receive a response code.  Please, use the response code for HP to clear the system disabled BIOS and enter the BIOS and then modify passwords as per your choice. - Business class notebooks : most business class notebooks (including yours Probook) have better security and the method described above will not work as far as I know. You will have to contact HP Support for assistance on removing the password. Here is how >> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html  Please, provide back your feedback and do not hesitate to post back if you need further assistance

Hello, I have a HP ProBook 6555b running Windows 7 Pro 64Bit and I cannot, for the life of me, get tthe audio to work. I've updated the BIOS to the latest version, I've tried updating the Firmware, I've tried downloading the drivers, but still nothing works. When going into Playback devices, the only device is Digital Audio (HDMI). When trying to download and install the IDT drivers from the HP driver website, the installation fails while saying that there is no compatible IDT hardware found. I've tried uninstalling the driver for the audio via the Device Manager but it always reinstalls as "High Definition Audio Device." I've tried installing several ATI video drivers that apparently come with audio drivers and none work. Also plugging in headphones and plugging the notebook into a dock has NO effect.Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi guys,    I have the same issues described here: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Probook-6455b-Webcam-Issues/td-... and yet no solution.   Let me summarize the issue I have with Webcam on my Probook 6555b (OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit)1. The Webcam is present and the white light on the left from it turns on when I start any Webcam software2. Tried both HP Webcam software and Skype. Here's the screen from HP Webcam software: Screen from Skype: 3. Here's driver information:   I tried to install the driver downloaded from HP (http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=4174259&swItemId=ob_82008_2&swEnvOid=4061), but got same error: " Setup has determined that your configuration does not support any of the included products". I looked into that driver package and indeed - they don't have the hardware ID of my Webcam there. I may be wrong, but it seems as a driver issue to me.  Would you be so kind to point me on correct driver for this Webcam? Any other advises how to make this Webcam working will be greatly appreciated too. One more thing: my machine has the latest available BIOS installed. OS was installed fresh and have the Webcam issue since then. I also tried to find drivers online by hardware ID. Found 2 or 3, tried - no luck. Thank you very much in advance.

A:Unknown BIOS password on ProBook 430 G3

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Regards, DP-K

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

Hello Everyone,

I have a HP Probook 6550B laptop that when it starts up it prompts you to login in. I do not remember my password or the security questions. It does ask for the Bios admin password but I have no idea what that is. I have tried to remove the laptop battery, and the small watch like battery under the keyboard for (30 Minutes), removed the havedrive, and still the same problem.

When I remove the battery and only plug in just the power cord it does tell me that the BIOS is invalid, but when it reboots it goes back to defaults and goes back to the user password screen.

I cannot get to the BIOS setup windows, change the boot device order, nothing.

Does anyone have any ideas how to work around this problem? Otherwise the laptop is useless if I cant get past this screen.

Thanks

Dear Customer, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks  or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-New-/251583542720?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item3a938c35c0 Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.    Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

Hi: Contact HP, and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at bootup to reset the password.  http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/contact_us.htm??l When talking to the HP rep, ask them to escalate your service request. In the USA/Canada, you can call this toll free number for assistance.  1-800-334-5144 Have the serial number of the notebook handy to give to the customer services rep.
