Question about HP Compaq Business NX9110 Notebook
I have a compaq nx9110 notebook and i have forgotten the power-on password. is there any way this could be removed or changed.
The only way is to clear the cmos settings. However, there is a special way to do it. First you have to take out the battery and the power adaptor from the laptop. Then you need to open the laptop and look on the main board for the cmos battery. Take it out for a few minutes, maybe 5 - 10 minutes. Then plug in the power adaptor without the cmos battery nor the laptop battery and boot the computer. It will ask you to hit F1 to either load default values or to save settings. Do that. Then shut down the computer. Make sure settings is saved though. Put in back the cmos battery and the laptop battery. When you reboot, it should boot up with no password.

This solution might help, depending on the model of the laptop.
It was meant to be for a HP N600c and could work on a HP Nx6320, so it might just work on other HP N models...
If the notebook you are servicing has an unknown password,
follow these steps to clear the password. These steps also
1. Prepare the computer for disassembly (remove hard drive 1 screw ,unclip dvd drive remove battery,remove keyboard clip tabs by f1,f5,f9,f12
2. Remove the RTC battery (remove cover to the left of the touch pad lift it 90 degrees to the front, disconnect the white plug on the clock battery”).
3. Wait approximately five minutes.
4. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer.
5. Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any
battery packs at this time.
6. Turn on the computer.
All passwords and all CMOS settings have been cleared.

In case of HP Compaq 6710 notebook it's even more easy. Just remove the power adaptorr, battery-pack and the CMOS-battery and wait a couple of minutes. Then boot the notebook, with only the power adaptor hooked on, and the power-on password is gone. Then place the CMOS-battery and battery-pack back in their position and your done.

Removing CMOS battery will not remove the password. The password settings are saved in the Registry and as such, you are SOL.

If you mean the log on password, you have to press F8 on start up and enter safe mode ans highlight start windows in safe mode, and log in windows using administrator account and go to user accounts and profiles and in the other log on account delete the password and restart windows

SOURCE: cmos password reset
You can get around this however it's not to easy. You would have to take the unit apart and locate the BIOS chip, this chip needs to pulled out, aswell as removing the CR2032 battery which stores time and date on the computer. Leave both of these removed for a few minutes and re-install. This should wipe the password out. Like I said though it's not something that's easily done. Good Luck Hope this helps. L8R
