Question about HP Compaq nx6310 Notebook
Welcome to FixYa! You have a laptop that is one of few that HP provides a command line procedure for. Follow these steps and you will be able to reset that password. If you have forgotten the first password then disable it as for any other brand/model it is an unforgiving procedure to undo that action.
Resetting the Computer ( These steps also clear CMOS): 1. Enter an incorrect password and press enter. 2. Repeat Step 1 two times. After the third entry of the incorrect password, the computer responds with a “System Disabled” message and provides an override password. 3. Access MS/DOS by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. 4. Enter “unlock6 xxxxx 0,” where “xxxxx” is the password generated by the computer in Step 2. The computer responds with another system-generated password. This password can be used to reset the computer and clear all CMOS settings.
Please post back if you need further assistance or simply rate a FixYa for me if you are successfu. Steve Medley

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
