How do I unlock my password on my elitebook 8440p


BIOS Password or Windows Password?
BIOS Password would require dismantling and Windows Password would require removing the password or re-installing the whole system.
It is also illegal to remove passwords from account that do not belong to you.

I have been given a hp elitebook to repair but it has a bios password that the owner no longer knowsis there a way of getting round this?


you will need to know the mother board layout to get to the board jumpers to reset the bios to 0.
this will require a tech or the schematic of the mother board to change the bios password settings
contact Hewlett-Packard and speak with a tech > they should be able to help.
Here is the tech support number :

I have an Elitebook 8440p and would like to insert my SD card in it. Could you tell me how?


The slot is in the front of the laptop right next to the button to open the laptop. Once you insert the card it should be recognized in windows and you can access it through My Computer.

EliteBook 8530p bios password


Generally, there are two ways to reset forgotten HP BIOS password. One is forcing BIOS/CMOS to reset itself to its stored defaults by removing all power to it. The other is to use a program to either locate or identify the password and reveal it to you or erasing the password entirely.
And the most easiest and convenient method for erasing dynamic BIOS/CMOS settings is to remove battery directly from the motherboard. It applies to most motherboards besides HP Elitebook BIOS. At this moment, HP Elitebook based on UEFI Bios provides a tool to reset BIOS password specially - HP SpareKey.

How to reset BIOS password with SpareKey?
1. Before forgot BIOS password, you have set answers to three predetermined personal identification questions.
Write down the answers to these questions and put them in a safe place, away from the computer, so that you can always access them.

2. When you cannot remember the password to access the BIOS on your computer, turn on the computer and immediately press the ESC key to display the Startup Menu. And then press the F7 key.

3. HP SpareKey wizard pops up and prompts you for the answers to the three personal identification questions. If you successfully answer the questions, you are granted access and you can reset the password.
If you do not answer the questions correctly in the three attempts, you will be locked out of your computer. And then you must contact HP for assistance.

Note: HP SpareKey cannot help you recover a Windows 7 or Vista administrator account password. It is intended solely to recover system-level passwords.
