Question about PC Laptops
How can I disable the Power On password has been enabled on the HP Compaq nx9030 notebook? Is there a RTC battery for this notebook? Where is it located?
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.
