BIOS password for HP Notebook 530 laptop
Check with HP if they have what is called a TPM - trusted platform module. This is a chip that is coming by default on Sony's and a few others. If by chance this is what he applied a password to, Sony will tell you that you have just purchased a very expensive paper weight. The chip must be replaced. This is a last resort of course.
There are many sites that offer "Back Door" passwords which are default for the manufacturers while in production. But sometimes you can get lucky & get one on line.
Another way is to remove the cmos battery for 1/2 at least. This should reset the bios,which then if works go straight to the bios and create a new bios password or none at all.
Some people I know have gotten their pc's to boot with boot software. This is worth checking into. Just remember, it's all about security now with identy theft ect..... So it may not be easy or at worst --- possible.
