Unknown hp power-on password

Hi!

I have been trying to go past the unknown power-on password for hp compaq nx6110. I followed the procedure on the manual, by removing the rtc bettery to reset the cmos and password, for approximately 5 min. I also tried removing the battery for approximately 8 hours. But after such a long time, the memory was not cleared. What else can I do besides sending the motherboard to the manufacturer or using any risky or expensive software?

    is it the operating system that is asking you the password... or are you trying to get into setup ?

Did you do all these steps in order?

1) Remove the computer power pack battery. Remove the keyboard.
2) Remove the RTC battery. Wait 5 minutes. (I would wait longer, maybe 15 minutes.)
3) Reinstall the RTC battery. Reinstall the keyboard.
4) Plug the AC power into the computer. (DO NOT INSTALL THE POWER PACK BATTERY AT THIS POINT)
5) Turn on the computer.

This should reset the password and also all CMOS settings.

Power-on password forgotten! How can the computer be started?


The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask that person who borrowed your Compaq for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you Compaq is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.

Different names, but it is the same thing. I'm not sure if it is possible to flash the bios without that password. I'll look into it. Have you tried contacting Compaq? The guys at the US online support helped me with a discontinued 8 year old model... and I live in Europe
