Using a screwdriver, You'll be able to open a cover on the bottom of the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery which will clear the power on password. Try to find the laptops Maintenance and Service guide online if you're unsure of how to do this. Google should find it for you.

Recover the power on password on a hp 530


Your biggest problem on a lot of web sites is that we do not know if the laptop is stolen or not so giving anyone the means to remove such passwords is frowned upon.

It sounds like the hard drive has been locked with a password. This is the most secure method to protect your data if the computer has been compromised or stolen. It is virtually impossible to unlock a hard drive password because the password itself is written on the hard drive and cannot be removed even if you install the hard drive on another computer. Since you cannot access the hard drive you cannot access the password. You need to get a new hard drive or one that doesn't have a password lock. If it's a Windows account password, you can remove it by getting a software password remover - these can be downloaded from the Internet.

After powering on the following message appears: Non-system disk or disk error replace and trike any key when ready. Trying to press F10 or F9 when powering on doesn not give any result. Does it mean that...


First, check if you have any usb memory keys or other removable media in your system. That error used to show up when you'd leave a non-bootable floppy in your pc. If you don't have anything in your system other than your hard drive- listen. If you are hearing clicking, grinding noises- then yes, your hard drive has mechanically failed. If you don't- then the chances the drive is about to fail since the boot sector was corrupted. Try to make certain the drive is seated correctly in your system- if that doesn't help- you will need to contact the technical support for your system to get a replacement hard drive if your system is in warranty- or you can purchase one, and replace it yourself.

Compaq presario r 30000 need to bypass power on password    password is not working . need to restore to factory setting


Power On The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC. If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty. Drive Lock The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password cannot be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.

Hard Drive with password protected.


I had the same problem. This is how I reset my password on a compaq or hp nc6320.
1. unplug the power cord
2. unplug the battery
3. take two screws from the ram cover on the back of the laptop (see youtube for this step)
4. open the keyboard
5. unplug the cmos battery cable (very easy to do)
6. plug power cable and turn on the laptop
7. laptop would erase passwords.
8. put everything back together.

A pleasure to help.
