    It's a problem for I'm in Norway now and my friend is in China with her laptop.I've written that she had been in HP service in China and guy had no idea how to fix it. I know that one solution is to take of battery and reset cmos but I read that it wouldn't work in this model. Maybe if you explain step by step how to clear cmos she could explain this to service guy or some friend of her.

I have orgotten my power on password on my hp compaq 6720s. How can i login? Please help me?

Have you tried the hp website? Try downloading the user guide which should give advice on clearing the bios password. Usually, unplugging the cmos battery for about one minute and plugging it back in will clear the bios password. In some cases, a jumper may be found near the cmos battery which can be used to clear the password.

Were can I find the RCT battery in a compaq 6720s? Actualy I have forgotten my power on password. so i want to remove the RCT battery but i can't find it. can you help me please?

Laptops dont store the BIOS password like desktops meaning that even if you find the Battery the password wont be deleted since its stored on a eeprom.
best way to go is to go to compaq they will help you if you have proof of purchase
