Preferred Solution: Power On Password lost - Adminsitrator Password - BIOS

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.)

A:Bios password lost

@Deshawn 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 an 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. Select   ?FIRST RUN? Then select model. After reboot repeat same as above but this time SELECT ?SECOND RUN? If you cannot boot from USB flash drive use the Image tool to build a HDD. Then use the drive to boot the program on the locked laptop. REO I must inform you that these services are not endorsed by HP, and that HP is not responsible for any damage that may arise to your system by using these services. Please be aware that you do this at your own risk.

​Hello to everyone. I am new here so please excuse me if this is not the right forum for this kind of question.
I have an HP Pavilion notebook, model HP ZT1130 that has a notebook bios. The password has been lost and I cannot get bast the password block. Is there anything I can do to get by this block?
I have tried to remove the cmos battery already. But that is soldered to the motherboard and I do not think I have the skills to remove that. Is there any other way?
 

A:Lost Bios password

If this is the bios password, then you will need help if you cannot remove the battery.
"The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC.
If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty."

Greetings, A friend brought a Dell Inspiron 2500 notebook over to have me look at it, saying that " It was fine until I did something and now it won't start." I tried booting it and received the message " Windows 2000 could not start because the file \Winnt\system32\config\system is missing or corrupt. I was going to boot from a rescue disc, and went to the bios to set the boot order, but the bios is password protected and no one knows the password. I called Dell who told me where the battery was in order to reset the bios password, and also told me if it wasn't there, I'd have to replace the mobo. Lo and behold, surprise, surprise - the battery wasn't there. I've heard of a little software program called BIOS crack, but cannot find it. Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated. Regards, R

Please see the TSG Rules, we no longer provide any help with lost passwords or getting around password protection. Obviously, we can't determine the real intent here, so our policy is to abstain from any assistance in these matters.

Laptop BIOS passwords are deliberately hard to crack for a reason, it's a theft prevention measure.

There should be a jumper on the motherboard to reset the BIOS. Check your motherboard documentation for the location of the jumper and set the pin to the reset position.

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

This document goes over steps to recover system passwords that may be of some help.  If you can't recover the password at all technical support should be able to. Tech support will ask you to verify that you are the owner of the notebook and if you are authorized to clear the password.  Since the system is out of warranty you may be charged for the phone call.

Hi: I wouldn't be able to help you get into windows. You are probably going to have to purchase a set of recovery media and reset the PC to its out of the box condition. You can try tapping the ESC key at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, select the F11 recovery option and see if you can factory reset the PC that way. Sometimes you need the Windows password for that too though. However, booting from the recovery media you purchase should work without the need of a password.
