I forgot my passowords. I need the BIOS password or reset. My computer es HP Probook 4530s Serial [Personal Information Removed]
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.)

I have a HP Probook 4530s that is double booted with Windows 7 and OSX and has 8 GB of RAM. It is running the version of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit that came with the computer. None of the original software has been removed. I have been having some issues with my hardware consuming most of the RAM in Windows 7 to the point where I only have 2.9 GB of usable RAM (I had the same amount of usable RAM when the computer had 4 GB of installed RAM). Windows detects that I have 8 GB of RAM installed so I don't think it is an issue with how the RAM is installed. (Additionally, I can use all of the RAM in OSX). How can I fix this issue?
Hello and welcome mostly I reckon you should look at what is being used at boot up > Start > type msconfig > right click run as admin and go to the tab Start you will see what is being loaded at boot up you can then work through some of the bloatware which sounds like lot of your problem too and untick them see my on boot pic.

I installed the driver fingerprint sensor windows 8 and it worked. Which suggested not let me install it. I have also installed other drivers windows 8 and I updated with the manufacturer (Intel and AMD) the graphics cards and some other that windows update has recommended me. Anyway still taking 1 min 30 sec to start, as there are 2 devices that are not recognized and for which no drivers. And the Atheros bluetooth driver gives a problem. HP, please release drivers for these three devices soon.

The problem is with the ATI graphics Catalyst driver, with version 15.7. To solve the problem of slow start, in the registry, change all the DWORD value to 0 in the enableULPS key.

Good afternoon, all! I've been trying to upgrade a ProBook 4530S to Windows 10. All looks good until I try to connect to Wi-Fi. The widget simply says "Cannot connect to wireless" and there are no Event Viewer entries showing why. The wired adapter works fine. They're both the Realtek adapter. I tried the Windows 8.1 driver with no success. The hard switch is on and the LED is white. The BIOS is the latest & greatest. Also triple-checked the wireless router password - thst's OK, too! With no indication from the OS as to what's going on, I may have to restore Win 7 and either start over or give up. I have another ProBook that I tried to upgrade; the wireless was fine, but there was something in the services that kept refreshing the desktop and breaking VPN and RDP connections. So, I'm a little concerned that these laptops may not be upgradeable to Win 10. Any tips for getting Win 10 to run on this? Thanks to all for looking! Gregg
Hi: If your notebook has the RTL8188CE wireless card, that doesn't work on W10. I didn't even know there was a W8.1 driver for it. I only thought that card worked up to W8. Why not upgrade the wlan card to the Intel card listed in the service manual...chapter 3, page 25. That should work fine on W10. Not only that, but you then get a dual band card with bluetooth. Intel Centrino® Advanced-N 6230 HP Part # 636672-001 The only caution is you must get that card, and it must have the HP part # on it or it will not work because of the BIOS whitelist HP has on those models. You should be able to find them used but in tested and working condition cheaply on eBay by querying by the part number. I would make sure you see the HP part number shown for the item in the listing photograph.Read other 1 answers

Hi, I'm having some trouble getting Windows 10 installed properly: How did you guys even get the HP 4530s to get the right Display Drivers for Windows 10, it looks like HP still hasn't released updated drivers for the 4530s... I have a ProBook 4530s running Windows 7 64bit Home edition. When I did the Windows 10 upgrade about a month ago, the installation appeared successful, but upon booting the computer, at the sign on screen (with the rocky beach picture with the ocean in the background) the screen would just flicker and not allow me to sign in or go past that point. So I went back to Windows 7. It appears to be a display driver issue but I see that HP has not released any display drivers for Windows 10 for the ProBook 4530s. Even if I had the driver's ready on an external flash drive or something, how am I supposed to install them if the screen keeps flickering and not allowing me to get to the desktop. I have also hooked up an external monitor and the same thing happens... How do I get the proper drivers installed -especially Display and Wireless Networking drivers,,,,before doing the upgrade attempt again to Windows 10?

Hi, i don't know the bios password for my laptop and i tried everything to unlock or reset the bios but it was all useless.How can i get access to the bios?
Hello @JohnFox94, 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.

Hello, I am new on this forum. I own a HP G2 450 ProBook. I retrieved this laptop by a family member passing away. Since I updated the OS to Windows 10, I had evergoing touchpad problems and WIndows 10 deleted my Windows 8.1 rollback. So I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8.1. Still having problems with my touchpad. I used HP Support Assist to update my drivers. I was missing a critical BIOS upgrade. I currently have an HP M74 motherboard, with version 1.05. For upgrading there is a password required for entering the BIOS. There is a 'user' part on the BIOS, with privileges of the first owner. This password I have for this account. But for changing settings on the BIOS, there is the administrator account. I need this one to upgrade the BIOS. What I already did:- used the standard bypass code: afxvh- Used another code: e9lo7vf5g9 - I have removed the RTC-Battery on the motherboard. - I have removed the RTC-battery for an hour, then assembled the HDD and RAM and pressed the Power on-Button. This was to empty all energy in the board. Then Installed the battery and all the other parts. This all didn't work. Methods of 'Mizzaf' for bypassing the BIOS code, isn't suitable for my laptop. WHo can help me reset the BIOS?
Hi, Unfortunately there are no 3rd party utilities that will work for this Model, so you will need to 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-KRead other 1 answers

Hello I have bought hp probook 4530s and While I am Using it I found that the battery does not last for long time or it finishes quickly. I mean I am do ing my work and suddenly the computer shuts down So, MY question is : Is there any solution to avoid this problem??
Can you provide a bit more information on your battery problem?
You say the battery doesn't last a long time, how long does it last when working from a full charge (100%)? When it is shuts down, does it just turn off with no warning, or does it give you a warning and tell you to plug the notebook in soon before shutting down? How old is the battery in the Notebook? What operating system are you using?
If you have HP Support Assistant installed, then I would recommend opening it, and running the battery test and battery calibration, that will at least tell you something about the condition of the battery.
