It is a BIOS password. If you do not remeber it the only solution is to remove the round battery from the mother board and reinsert it. Turn on the laptop. It will directly take you to the BIOS scree. Restore the default bios setting. Save and exit and your laptop will turn on

I forgot startup password to a hp xw6200x


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.


In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.


If all else fails you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard


Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it



Hope it helps

Hi, Sorry but we are not allowed to help people circumvent passwords or disable them. We have no way of knowing you are the laptop owner. Do you follow me? This is for your protection if this is your laptop.

You will have to contact HP directly and or the fingerprint scanner manufacturer yourself. On the back of your HP laptop is a Service Tag that sort of looks like this one.e424f16.jpg
Once HP is satisfied, you can receive instructions from them.

The only other way is to remove the wrist rest and keypad bezel carefully. It has a sensitive ribbon cable attached to the mainboard, don't let this become detached. Inside the mainboard is a battery pack that has a red and white wire. You disconnect the wire plug from its socket with A/C power removed and your battery out. Leave this plug out for several minutes. Replace it, replace your wrist rest and keyboard bezel and insert your battery, attach A/C power and boot up, immediately press and tap F10 to enter the Setup Screens. You will need to set the time and date and at the bottom of the screen will be a keyboard legend that will tell you which F key loads setup defaults, usually F9. Leave the fingerprint scanner off your system and seek advice on how to reset it to none from the manufacturer. Although most of these devices comes with a small CD to setup the scanner.

Hope this fixes your issue.

Sounds like somone has put What they call a bios/boot user password this is a password thatis used before windows even loads up.

If no one will tell you the password the only other way i know of to reset the password is to open the computer case and remove the CMOS battery which is a CM2032 button batter you cant miss it

Remove that battery and remove power to the case for a few minutes then replace the battery and power back on.
