Question about HP Computers & Internet
That is a good question however More information would help us such as model. Normally the bios is in flash memory, no user data is stored there. There is a process called reflashing that you can go through but you will have to read the manual to find out how. If it boots and operates properly the BIOS is ok.

Testimonial: "I am trying to find out how I can access the BIOS data on my HP p6530uk desktop PC in order to replace CMOS battery that is low. Serial No. is CZC04043BB. Windows 7, i5intel, 64bit Desktop.Most information I have gleaned so far is that my CMOS battery is probably, causing many websites that I try to access, to be blocked. "There is a problem with this website's security certificate.......etc, etc...""

The 6930p uses the HP Sparekey method of password recovery. The owner sets a password and then completes hints to retrieve it in case it is lost.
They can also register the password with HP and upon providing proper proof of ownership, HP will provide the password the owner registered with HP.
So, if a person can't remember the password or the password hints, they can get it from HP.
If the password wasn't registered, or you are not the original owner, there is nothing you can do to retrieve the password, or clear it.
You will need a new motherboard, or you can strip the notebook for parts (except for the motherboard, which is useless as it is).
Last but not least you can install the Operating System again and this will by pass the Windows password. That would be my option instead of using the computer for a door jam or throwing it out. Just get a System restore disk or another Operating System disk upgrade to Win 7 good software for a laptop.

The Mac and the windows file system are different. So if you
will connect a Mac file system formatted hard drive to a windows system then it
may occur. To retrieve your data from your MAC hard drive you have to connect
the drive to a Mac system.
Check the cables of the hard drive or replace them. You can
try to connect with another port of the mother board. If the Bios don't detect
your hard drive then check the bios settings. If the bios detects your hard
drive but you can't access it then try to repair the OS to retrieve your data.
