Re: hp pavilion ze 4200

Hi, Your post may refer to three (3) settings: 1) BIOS for the laptop/hardware itself or the 2) operating system or 3) password. BIOS - Upon restart, when the logo screen is displayed, press F2 to enter BIOS Setup. OS - to really get back to the beginning: 1. Go to System restore and click on the first/earliest date of restore point. This would perhaps be the earliest backup of your system and everything will revert to as to how it was then; or 2. Reformat, clean/fresh install of Windows. Now if you are referring to forgotten BIOS or entry password, you have to bring it to HP service with proof of ownership/purchase and other documentations. Good luck and kind regards.

How to Reset HP Pavilion Password on Notebook Computer


Pavilion BIOS password reset is commonly needed. Today, we talk about HP Pavilion Windows password reset solutions. Our Windows OS users can set up administrator account and encrypt it with password to enter the OS. This actually prevents unauthorized users from operating on your system. While, if we Pavilion PC users forget the encrypted password and can't login Windows, now what to do for HP Pavilion password reset?

Firstly, if there are not important files on our HP Pavilion notebook, we can reinstall system by deleting all data and cleaning system. Most of us may hope opt for other ways to bypass the Pavilion login password.

Secondly, please think that is there still another account for us to enter Pavilion PC. In Windows XP, Vista, there is HP Pavilion default administrator which has blank password. For Windows 7, the built-in administrator account is disable defaulted. Only if we set it as enable, the account can be used at the moment.
Take HP Pavilion Windows XP password reset from Safe Mode as example:
a. Press "F8" when Pavilion laptop starts.
b. At the "Advanced Boot Options" windows, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and Enter, then PC enters Safe Mode.
c. Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Note that if we have set this HP Pavilion administrator password, we need to input the password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
d. Start - Control Panel - User Accounts.
e. Select the locked account and reset password for the locked account.
f. Restart Pavilion laptop and login with the account newly password reset.

Thirdly, the least troublesome solution on Pavilion password recovery is to opt for password reset program tool. With the program and a CD/DVD/USB disk, we can easily remove the password for locked computer. Take Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
Step1. Burn .iso file to a CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive on an accessible PC;
Step2. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive;
Step3. Recover forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.

Certainly that the 3 ways can make sure we reset Pavilion password finally. The Windows Password Recovery Corporation can be used for Windows 7, XP, Vista, and Windows Server 2003, 2008 domain password, etc.

How do I open the HP Pavilion ze 4300 to replace the powerjack

All screws need to be removed off the back of the computer then you need to flip the computer over and then remove the plate right above the keyboard and remove the screws there. Once that is done you will be able to get into the motherboard

HP Pavilion ze5185 PC Notebook ATI Mobility Radeon

indeed you are having and ATI chip beneath the keyboard. (a BGA 256 ball ATI Mobility) Unfortunately due to rights the laptop manufacturers are developing the graphic drivers and not ATI so these drivers you found are at best totally incompatible.

Go to this Link from HP and download ZE 5185 model that you own - Also you will find manuals and all other drivers for the laptop.

(Select your operating system - The Driver in included in the whole driver package (sound,etc) Pls check the description.(the size should be around 42mb)
