    Look for your BIOS version and try the password listed. Let me know if that works.

Unable to pair samsung t729 blast with bluetooth on hp nc8430


Read the manual that came with your device. It should tell you in the manual what the default pin is. You can try 0000, or 9999, or 1111 just for the heck of it...it's usually something like that. (not sure on the number of digits for your device, but I think it would be 4)

Power-on password on my HP NC8430


restart computer and as it is starting up, before you get to the password part, hold down F1 button on top of keypad...that should take u to the internal info for the pc...(Using windows?)...you should be able to re-enter or just delete the password there...then save info and reboot your computer....
