Preferred Solution: How to reset bios admin password HP Elitebook 8440p

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

SOLUTION: This is what I did and worked like a dream. Contacted HP, told them the problem. They "escalated the case," took my info. The next day I was emailed a file called SMC.bin. It is formatted specifically for my machine, has to match the UUID. Copied file to FAT 32 formatted jump drive, booted it as per the email instructions, reset bios password.I did this via chat on HP's website.Screwing with the bios battery will not work on Elitebook...

Hi,  had to replace motherboard with one bought on ebay.  Ebay seller said up front he didnt know the bios password.  Anyway Everything works ok after finally getting it back together, except the fingerprint reader.  I guess this is linked to the new motherboard, and I dont know if having the bios password will help me or not.  There are a couple of places in the setup menus where I could enable or reset the fingerprint reader.  But if anyone has any better idea as to how to get the fingerprint reader working I may be able to get by without the bios password at all. i still have the original Motherboard if that makes any difference to anything. Power jack mounting got broken on it. thanks in advance, sarge

Reset BIOS password on HP Elitebook folio 9480M

A:Reset BIOS password on HP Elitebook folio 9480M

Hello @gcarballo,  We are sorry as there is no master password or generator for EliteBooks or ProBooks.  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 the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case.  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.                                    When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.   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

I downloaded a bios upgrade with the HPSoftpaq Program and then executed it. It ran properly as far as I could tell, no errors were shown, then when finished wanted a reboot. After the reboot, it will not come back on. When you switch it on the panel lights go on then about 5 seconds later there are two icons on the panel that look like this, one has a padlock with an A next to it and the other a padlock with a 1 next to it. Well after the 5-6 seconds, these two icons flash every second, while all the other panel lights are on. I am pretty sure the BIOS got corrupt when I was flashing it.  Can anyone help me restore it to its original state (BIOS) please.  It seems like my life has come to an end till I get it fixed. pretty sad hey? Also I didn't make a backup of the old bios before doing the upgrade. I KNOW, HOW DUMB OF ME!THE COMPUTER IS AN HP ELITEBOOK 8440P i5 Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5850  @ 2.16GHz, 2167 MHz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.THANK YOU.

A:May I need EliteBook 8440p Bios to update

The time to update BIOS for a new OS is before you install it, generally. But also if everything seems to be good, then don't worry. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I need to reset some of the stuff in the BIOS for wireless, etc and the IT guys at my company seem to have mislogged or fogotten the admin pw for BIOS. Anyway they have given me five alrady and non of them work. They say I will have to ship the unit in to Chicago and they will fix it. That will take a WEEK that I do not have. How can I reset the password? The settings in the BIOS I need to change are locked and the message says the setup is locked-enter the admin pw into SECURITY UNLOCK SETUP to enable changes. Any advice is welcomed!

Hello, I can enter my HP laptop BIOS as guest, but not as Admin.I bought the laptop with the package opened, at a discounted price, but it had a BIOS Admin password set by the PC store. I want to reset this password. I contacted the Romanian HP Support Center and a gentleman told me I have to wait for the US support team to create a binary file that will allow me to reset the password.I waited for approximately 10 days without ANY feedback. The PC store told me I can send the laptop to them to try and reset the password, but I would rather reset the password myself. Does it take such a long time to create that executable? I appreciate any help. Thank you.
