    To return or restore all HP Mini 5103 Netbook to the values that were set at the factory, follow these steps:

    Open Computer Setup by turning on or restarting the computer, and then pressing esc while the "Press the ESC key for Startup Menu" message is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen.
    Press f10 to enter BIOS Setup.
    Use the arrow keys to select File > Restore defaults, and then press enter.
    When the confirmation dialog box opens, press f10.
    To save your preferences and exit Computer Setup, use the arrow keys to select File > Save changes and exit. Then follow the instructions on the screen.

    After F10, BIOS ask for password. There is no option to select File. /H.B.

    When the confirmation dialog box opens, press f10.
    To save your preferences and exit Computer Setup, use the arrow keys to select File > Save changes and exit. Then follow the instructions on the screen.

    After startup I select Esc, then F10, then
    I get a white screen with one option:
    Enter BIOS password.
    A password I don't remember. I never enter BIOS. That's my problem.

    To reset the BIOS I first must enter BIOS. The BIOS is password protected. And I have forgotten the password. How do I reset the BIOS password?

    F1 System information
    F2 System diagnostic
    F7 HP spare key
    F10 BIOS Setup
    F11 HP Recovery
    Return > Windows start
    I enter F10 and get the white screen with only one option:

    (Please try this bios Password e9l3fx7uhq)

    Troubleshooting:
    In case if the Password doesn’t work please try a Hard Reset as follows.
    1. Shut down the notebook
    2. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery
    3. Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds
    4. Plug in the Power/AC Adapter (Leave the battery out for the moment) & Start the Notebook
    5. If you now see a password box, Please type the same Password I shared before and press enter.....again if this does not work get in touch with hp by the link i have send you.

HP Mini Notebook 2140 when i go into bios i am asked for a setup password


I recommend removing and reinstalling the CMOS battery but you will need to open up your laptop to do this. Otherwise, this link provides some software options to cracking and resetting the password:

http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.html



On the second page of this guide, you will see a circular yellow battery (the CMOS battery) depicted in step 5. This is what needs to be popped out, wait several seconds and put it back in.
