Xp200 power on password


Power On password The Power on Password and hard drive password is used to protect the laptop/computer and hard disk from unauthorized access.
The hard drive password is setup in the BIOS you need the hard disk password to remove the password. I'm afraid you may have purchased a stolen laptop/computer. It is impossible to remove a hard drive's password there are no backdoor passwords because the password is stored in the hard drive's firmware. If the laptop/computer has a Power on Password then this laptop cannot boot up.
If the hard drive is password protected then remove the existing drive, replace it with a new hard drive may fix the laptop/computer r BUT it may also set a password on the new hard disk and lock it with the same password. If it does not password protect the new hard drive, then install Windows plus laptop/computer's device drivers and programs to get a working laptop/computer.

Power-on Password


b> If your HP Compaq 6715B laptop is lost or stolen, the power-on password can protect the valuable data on your computer. Even so, there may be times you'll want to clear that password and knowing the right procedure will make that easier. Once the power-on password is cleared, the Compaq 6715B will no longer require you to enter a password just to start up your laptop.

Shut down your Compaq 6715B and wait for it to power off. Press the "Power" button to restart the laptop. Tap the "F10" key after the Compaq splash screen appears. Wait for the setup menu to appear. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Security" menu and scroll down to the "Power On Password" option. Delete the entries in both boxes, then press the "F10" key. Choose the "Save Changes and Exit" option to exit the setup menu. Wait for the laptop to restart and verify that the laptop does not prompt for a power-on password. Hope this helps.

Power-on password on hp 8510p


Power On Password & Hard Disk Password
With your next laptop you should protect it with a Power On Password AND put a password on your hard disk. This will stop anyone from using your laptop and if they move the hard disk from your laptop to another laptop they cannot access the data on your hard disk with the hard disk password.
BUT you need to write down or remember these passwords; if you lose or forget them you cannot gain access to your laptop.
There are no backdoor passwords to remove these passwords.
To set up or change these passwords, go to the BIOS configuration - then security configuration. http://techtips.salon.com/reset-hp-laptop-bios-password-1476.html

If you incorrectly entered a power-on password three times the computer will lock down. You will have to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds, wait at least 10 seconds then power your laptop and enter the correct password.

Procedure for setting a passcode for laptop so that nobody can open it.


To prevent and secure anyone from accessing your laptop, you can place a Power On Password on your laptop. This Power On Password comes up as soon as you switch on your laptop and won't allow access any access unless the correct password is entered. There are no backdoor passwords to bypass the Power On password to get into your laptop.
You can also place a hard disk password on your laptop and this will prevent anyone from accessing the data on your hard disk, even if they install the hard disk into another computer. There are no backdoor password to bypass the hard disk password.
You may also enable a BIOS password to prevent anyone from changing your BIOS settings.
These passwords are configured in the laptop's BIOS under Security settings.
Once you create these passwords, I suggest you write down these passwords and place them in a safe place should you need need them.

Laptop says power on password


If it's truly a "power-on-password", you have a paperweight or doorstop instead of a laptop. Most laptops use this feature in their BIOS hardware to prevent access by unauthorized persons, including thieves. If you are the rightful owner, take it to a computer shop to see if it's really a power-on-password or a Windows password (which can be bypassed).
