This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

How do i locate the hp probook 4520s BIOS password jumper on the motherboard


4520s.
you failed because of one reason, you asked on fixya not HP'
why ask here, there are no HP(few) folks here, they are all over at HP, real forum.?
bios resets are tricky,
the new rules changed with UEFI BIOS and or TPM chips added.
back in 2007 the mobo had reset jumper, (mine desktop does)
but not my 2008 elitebook laptop, due to the TPM rules.

first the link to your books
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-ProBook-4520s-Notebook-PC/4145198

those cover most issues, you will have. all by HP direct,
page 126 here is not too clear;.
the answer is here
your PC is fully locked now, there is no way to reset it .
without HP direct intervention (fixya can never ever do that)
the send you a special binary flash file that only works on YOUR PC (a fact and is by DESIGN)

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-Notebooks/Probook-4545s-Bios-Password-reset/m-p/6350164#M147169


never use a BIOS password, unless you write it down and hide the paper in a book you know, where it is. (got books?) i know books are now (dead technology but)>?
if you guess and start flashing BIOS, you will BRICK THIS PC.

Sir i have problem in hp g61 i;m getting that message upon installing new bios. my touch pad is going crazy, so i was advised by hp to update the bios from F 0.6 to F06 f. however when i turn the computer...


never flash BIOS or risk this., only flash if
1: THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH PC.
2: HP TOLD YOU the bios fixes this exact problem.
3; getting the correct bios for this pC can be difficult.
4: flashing with a dead battery can fail,
5: If the flash fails, try again. repeat the flash,
6: if the BIOS is now dead, take out coin cell for 15min.
put it back see if BIOS key works now. and reflash it using only the correct new BIOS FLASH binary files only from HP and matching
your exact unstated, service TAG data. (i bet you did not even look or get it right here, as many do , and then brick the PC)


the touch page worked when new.
so how can BIOS suddenly go bad?. (it cant)
no windows OS stated
if you are still running the correct OS on this G61.

to make the pad work takes:
1: pad not damaged or cables inside not loose.
2: correct OS, that HP supports, (windows 10 may not be)
3: only HP version and disks loaded for OS and all drivers, not microsofts.
4: remove and load the correct mouse pad from HP.
5: bingo it works and no flash needed, nor desired ever or 99.9% of all cases. leave BIOS alone and win. is my motto.

what G61, since you never said, my guess you dont know
and if true, then how'd you get the correct bios.
you didnt. (my guess and is right most times when bios mangles)
here ill click 100 for your, my wild guess.
it runs vista and w7 only, are you >? hp disks not MS?
year 2009 made.(as old as....)
see results in last photo. (guessing your unstated service tag)

btw, next time ask for mouse pad help
and leave BIOS ALONE.

I need to reset the password for the bios, thanks


You need to reset the BIOS. You need to open the laptop and move the jumper over one pin, then boot up your computer. Then let it boot completely, then shut it off and move the jumper back to where it was before. That will completely reset your BIOS, in turn removing the password.
Good luck!

I just hauled my very old Acer notebook (Travelmate 220) out of storage to give to a worthy cause, but I can't open it. It's password protected which is something I never usually bother with, but back then...


For that you have to reset bios settings.
Open back cover of laptop then find motherbord .
Pull CMOS cell from motherbord for 10 minutes from motherbord so all settings reset.
You can also reset password with jumper on motherbord.
Find jumper on motherbord named "clear cmos " or "reset bios " it has 3 pin.
Set jumper in 2-3 position then again put jumper in 1-2 position .
Then all settings goes to factory defaults.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Reset bios password


Most laptops do not have one and clearing the cmos will not help.

Contact HP, they have a master password that can get you in. You may have to fax them proof of ownership to get them to help. I had to do this on a laptop.

Hope this helps

How to resets bios for compaq 2514 at


Why? What happend? Is it asking for a BIOS password?
If it is asking you have to short two jumpers on the systemboard to have it reset.
If not, just go in to BIOS by pressing F2 then restore or optimize default settings on BIOS.

Hope this helps...
