The backdoor password for Compaq computers is "Compaq". Try entering that and it should work.

After replacing my hard drive my laptop hp compaq 6720 is asking for a power on password Ive never put one in


Using Computer Setup to Reset CMOS

To reset CMOS through Computer Setup, you must first access the
Computer Setup Utilities menu.

When the Computer Setup message appears in the lower-right corner
of the screen, press the F10 key. Press Enter to bypass the title
screen, if necessary.

-- If you do not press the F10 key while the message is displayed, you
must turn the computer off, then on again, to access the utility.

A choice of five headings appears in the Computer Setup Utilities
menu: File, Storage, Security, Power, and Advanced.

To reset CMOS to the factory default settings first set time and date,
then use the arrow keys or the Tab key to select File > Set Defaults
and Exit. This resets the soft settings that include boot sequence
order and other factory settings. It will not, however, force hardware
rediscovery.

See the Desktop Management Guide on the Documentation CD for
further instructions on reestablishing passwords. For instructions on
Computer Setup, see the Computer Setup (F10) Utility Guide on the
Documentation CD.

Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check
If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask
the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is
necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the
following steps:

• Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine.

• Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture.

• Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.

• Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the
system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.

• Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.

• If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and
try again.

NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).

Check below for the picture of the HW Password reser gap. The gap that needs to be "shorted" is G77.

Hi there,

when the computer is starting up, you can enter the BIOS setup by pressing either:
esc, delete, F2 or F10.
or try to look good when it start up witch is the right one for your system.
In the setup, there is a security setup, and the first one down is the boot up password.
set it and remember F10 to accept the change.

HELP!! PLEAse!!!!!


What you have done is put a BIOS password on your system, all you have to do is enter the password you typed after you hit F10 the first time when the system boots up. if the password does not work try hitting the caps lock key and entering the password again.
