HP Mini 5102 only boots to BIOS screen. Administrator password not working. Won't boot past this screen


I repair laptops for work and when I get a HP mini with a locked bios and unknown password then I use www.unlockbiosrecovery.com and for $20 they send me the master bios password for my specific laptop which clears any bios password set. It has saved me so much time and money!! They do most laptop brands and models. They can also clear hard drive passwords on laptops.

You have to erase the motherboard memory. However this is extremely difficult. Even if you esase the cmos memory and put in a whole new hard drive, the lock may still be there. Your best bet is to contact the seller to see if they will give you the password. If they dont want to help you then you should leave a negative feedback on their account.

Bios password


If you have forgotten your BIOS or Hard Drive Password for this model, there is a master code that you can obtain from Dell Support. Simply call, Email, or use Online Chat from http://support.dell.com and give them your Service Tag, and they can help your out from there. If it is a Windows profile password you have forgotton, try accessing the Administrator account from Safe Mode, and remove the password for the user account locked out.

Laptop locked


You have an Power on Password.
The Power on Password is set up from the BIOS configuration and the password is stored on an EEPROM chip. Removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS password, there are no backdoor password available.
There is a way to retrieve the password, but it requires a bit of electronic skill and a working computer to achieve this.

How do you unlock a few locked keys on my laptop


Can you tell me whether this is a bios power on password, a hard drive lock password, or a windows administrative operating system password? I'm assuming that it is asking for a password when you say "locked".

Try imputing the password with the caps lock on. You may have had the caps lock on by mistake when you set the password and not have know it. You wouldn't be the first to have done that. I speak from EXPERIENCE on this one. If that doesn't work, try booting into safe mode and see if it will let you bybass the password and you can reset it to a new one there. Let me know ! Thanks //D
