Found hp pavillion 5170 in dumpster. need to retore it with no disk and on guest user

You can get the manual here

and then try this:

Go to page 2-38 in the manual, and read the procedure on how to remove the CMOS battery.
Then follow this procedure to clear the BIOS password.
These steps also clear CMOS:
1.Remove the main battery and A/C plug.
2.Remove the real-time clock (CMOS) battery.
3.Wait approximately 30 minutes.
4.Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer.
5.Connect AC power to the computer only. Do not reinsert any battery packs at this time.
6.Turn on the computer.
All passwords and all CMOS settings have been cleared.

Hp pavillion ze5300 need to get into CMOS can't

There are a few ways to attempt this one is take it in to a shop they can access it with special software. Or download your own special crack software or re-install you operating system using the recovery disc that came with your laptop. Try removing the CMOS battery as well for about 10 minutes or so. Sometimes this will work Also call them they have bypass codes they use to get your through as well. My suggestion would be to call them and have them walk you through it and explain it further if your not computer swavy.

My laptop (HP Pavillion DV9000) startup issue.

As you know CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip (stores BIOS) powered by the CMOS battery you refer to, inside computers that stores information such as the system time and system settings for your computer. I have heard of issues when the CMOS battery is low (1.3 it should have failed normally by now), from boot inc other issues, so id say yes possible. The thing is any machine at POST boot is only as powerful and reliant as its Bios, which has given me another thought. Some companies when a system boots have the CMOS ROM copied to RAM as ram is faster, I cant honestly say if HP do this, was just a thought.
hope helps a little, let me know if i can be of further help

The cmos on the Pavilion is going to be in one of three places, and will be one of two styles of battery. The cmos style will be either a large watch type battery about the size of a nickle located in a slot on the mother board, or in a yellow or greenish pouch with two wires leading to a connector, located under a cover on the bottom of the machine, or under the keyboard.
