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.)

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-...

Hi,I have a HP Probook 4330s with i3-2310m 2.1 Ghz processor, HD 3000  integrated graphics, and 8gb RAM (1333Mhz). I see on the manual online that this laptop was also delivered with i7-2620M 2.7Ghz. Previous posts on this forum and other online forums indicate that it is possible to upgrade to this i7 CPU.is it just a matter of buying any i7-2620M? Or are there different types of the same cpu? I?m asking because some forum posts talk about socket and other things? What do I need to look for when buying this cpu for my computer?Please tell.

Hi, I've got a hp 4330s with the stock ralink wifi module. After trying to use a usb 3.0 mPCIE module (and failing), I put the old wifi card back in, it used to work but now I get "Unsupported wireless device detected" this is with the stock wifi  card. How on earth can the card that came with the laptop be "unsupported" ? Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Reconditioned HP ProBook 4330s wifi not working

From whom did you buy it? Make sure the wifi is enabled in the BIOS (F10 as you power up). Sometimes it helps to open the back of the laptop and physically reseat the wireless card. Is the wireless card showing up in the device manager?

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

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.

A:ProBook 6570b BIOS admin password reset

Hi, Unfortunately I'm not aware of any 3rd party utilities that work with this particular Model, however 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

Hello everyone! I've been searching around for a solution to this issue I've having but haven't found a thread that relates to my particular situation, so help would be greatly appreaciated. I installed HP ProtectTools on a laptop and it configured BIOS to require a password before booting up. I decided that I didn't want that setup and since it was a fresh image of windows, a re-image would be a quicker and easier fix to this issue. However, the BIOS security features still remain and now all the previous software the was used to setup the BIOS security is no longer on the laptop. How can I go about removing this security feature now that I've re-imaged the laptop? Thanks

Good afternoon, we have one client that have forgoten which is his laptop's password. He doesn't matter about removing his data or reinstalling his operative system. For this we need the admin password of the bios to reinstall. We know  that by forgeting the password is not necessary to drop the laptop. We don't know what to do. What solution can you offer?

Hello dear hp wizards! I have a weird problem. When I'm attempting to install the newest BIOS update thru HP Support Assistant, the installation program asks me for my BIOS password which doesn't work for some reason, but it works fine at startup when I access BIOS setup / update BIOS after I have to give the password there, it even gives me the happy "bleep bleep bleep bleep"- sound. I've never had this problem before.  Any ideas? kody

Hi,

I've put a "administrator" and a user password in my laptop bios.Now the user password works fine but the administrator password is never accepted allthough i typ what i've configuerd.When setting up the administrator password there where three prompts (current,new,confirm) and i typed three times the same while current needs to be blank but it didn't give me an error.Now i know some methods of resetting the bios but it's known laptops have better security.So my only chance is togo the manufacterer which takes verry long to respond if they respond at all

anybody knows advice ?
i've tryed the "qwerty" thing to that password is never accepted it's a ami optia bios

Everything I google is coming back in German.
There is, in my opinion, no reason to put a password on your BIOS.
You can try using the jumper pins or pulling the cmos battery out for 10 seconds.

@Achaab 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.htm??l When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request. Or download these files. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zu4kdgxm052l87d/AAAMi-k??fX4AVH8oTCbsOM4X9a?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. Select   ?FIRST RUN? Then select model. After reboot repeat same as above but this time SELECT ?SECOND RUN? 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.
