Hp compaq nx6110 power-on password

Hi! bunnydawg,

This is a reply to your clarification request.

It is not the operating system that is asking me the password. The computer request the password at power-on before the operating system loads. At power-on, It gives an option of F10 and F12 which both lead to cmos setup but require a power-on password to procceed any further. Can you help?

Regards,
Thawi

    You may want to search for bios utilities; some claim they can reset bios passwords. But bios passwords on laptops are another animal and bios passwords on many laptops are two level. If it's just a bios password they may help you, but if its a two-level bios password set on the hard drive, they can usually not resettable with software (OEMs theft control).



    Contact me (consult@jasb.com) with a picture of the screen at point of password request (probably need to us camera) and I'll try to help you further.

I need administrator password for compaq nx6110


1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.

2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).

3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.

4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.

5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.

When I switch the laptop on it says power on password


It seems you entered a Power ON password, If you remember please enter it or if not then you need to visit nearest Service Provider.
You can try Enter when it ask for the password. Or if possible Go to BIOS and disable the Power On password.

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.
