Question about HP Computers & Internet
How do you reset the BIOS? OK, basic step would be to remove the CMOS BIOS battery. HP Probook 450 Closest I found that might be similar to your laptop. In the video you'll see a coin looking battery marked 2032. Remove this and wait a minute before placing it back in. This is the basics of a BIOS reset. Beyond that gets a little more techie. Hope this helps.
Make sure the laptop has no power, remove battery and push and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log
in if you cant log in
the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press
a certain key to enter set up press and
hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user
password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from
most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to
physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug
and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another
way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2
methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the
BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the
battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps you
