    what kind of laptop is this?
    Normally if you take one of the covers off the bottom of the computer you can access the hard drive. Under the hard drive you will find the battery (most of the time)

The power on password is configured from the BIOS and removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS and remove the password as it is stored on an EEPROM chip.
This password is to protect unauthorized access to data on the laptop and the hard drive. There are no backdoor passwords available.
Ask the person who set the password, then you will be able to remove it by going into the BIOS setup.

Hi Adel,
I am afraid there is no way still to retrieve BIOS password but you may want to contact HP Support to check if they have ways to check that for you. Usually for the case you have it is replace MOBO already. Please check the number on the link below base on your location.

Modems & drivers


Why not put the drivers on a disk as a backup. Then you will have them if you ever need them in the future. You can then install the drivers in your notebook.
