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.)

Trying to reset the password on and old C400, it is asking for primary or administrator password. I have no idea what to put in there, and can't see if  the computer will function at all!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks! 

A:Need the reset for password on Latitude C400, bios revision A06, original password.?

You'll need to call Dell with verification of ownership -- it may not be worth it though, since the call will cost about $60, which is probably about six times more than the entire system is worth.
The other option is to replace the mainboard - which is probably well under $60.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to resetting the password on this motherboard (I cant find the jumper settings anywhere) or have any idea what might be causing the other errors. Thanks.

Hello @Panosfg Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting.  You have posted in the Business section for business class devices. If your PC is Elitebook or Probook (business class device) you should note that most business class notebooks (including yours Elitebook and Probook) have better security. You will have to contact HP  Business Support for assistance on removing the password.  If your HP computer is a consumer home class device, the password could usually be removed with forum assistance Here is how to reach HP>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/business-support.html HP Business support should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file and instructions which you can use  to reset the password. Assistance for such problems is usually free of charge for business class devices.  BIOS update >> personally, I do not recommend you do it unless you experience some issues with your existing BIOS and you are sure that the new BIOS will fix it. General recommendation I provide to users/customers is NOT to upgrade BIOS/UEFI unless they experience any kind of specific BIOS/UEFI issue.

Any kind of update (no matter for what and who relesed it) can fix 2 issues but may introduce 10 more issues. Additionally, upgrading the BIOS (for any vendo... Read more

A:How to reset the bios password

Good day and welcome to the community.Sorry you're having trouble.
The only way to remove a BIOS password is to know it and use it where prompted. There is no "reset". If you don't know the supervisor/admin password, or can't get it from someone who might've set it, the only option is to replace the system board. Also, if you don't know the correct hard drive password, then the drive is unusable. There are no backdoors.Regards.

Hi @werkstation  Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting. Elitebook is a commerical/business class PC.
