On HP DV6000 series laptops, to clear the BIOS password, find the Cmos Battery (or RTC battery) and disconnect it from the motherboard for at least 10 minutes. This will clear the CMOS and clear the passwords. This is straight from the service manual. Once the time is over reconnect the battery and power the system back up, make sure you go right into the BIOS and reset the date and time. This is usually accomplished by striking the delete key or the F2 key during the HP splash screen.

SOURCE: remove hp bios password


Get to the bios options, press F2 or delete to open the bios options then remove the password there. Before read this below................

HP Technical Support will help you remove it if you can prove that you own it. Here is an excerpt from the service manual for your laptop:

Password Removal Policy

If the user forgets the system password, the user calls Technical Support to determine the proper removal procedure The user must provide proof of ownership and the notebook must be operated during the procedure.

The password removal procedure is protected as HP Company Private information There are a restricted number of locations that can perform password removal It might not be disclosed or distributed outside those locations.

Password removal is strictly controlled Hewlett-Packard and authorized support providers must ensure with written evidence that the notebook being “cleansed” is actually in the possession of the notebook’s actual and current owner This requires a sales receipt showing the notebook serial number and owner’s name, or a written statement from the owner attesting that he or she is the owner of the notebook. The statement can be a fax copy of the document The fact that the notebook is in the hands of an HP representative on behalf of the customer is not evidence of ownership In addition, HP will not remove the password of a notebook for any non-owner, even if it is requested by law enforcement agencies If you receive such a request, you should notify management and HP Corporate Legal immediately.
(These requests might require a court order prior to our participation).

Further, the entity removing the password must log the name, serial number and date of the removal, and file the written backup with the log The log and backup are subject to standard record retention process and review.

The final issue relating to removal of passwords is that HP cannot provide information to users that would assist them in improperly removing a password and opening a notebook.

good luck

SOURCE: how can i remove bios password fro hp 6735s

You won't be able to do it yourself. You'll have to contact an authorized HP support center.

There used to be "easy" ways but now the password is stored on a chip on the motherboard.

I'm afraid this will need to be sent of for repair, as it involves open the laptop up and shorting out to connectors to wipe the password. HP do do this but I know it is expensive. If you go to a local repairer, make sure that they is confident else they could blow the whole laptop.

I forgot my bios password of my laptop hp 6730s and cant even reformat it ? any help plz ? thank you so much .

You need to clear the cmos. This is accomplished by removing the cmos battery for 5-10 minutes.
1. Remove the battery 2. Remove the keyboard 3. Remove the LED switch cover 4. Remove the cmos battery cable from the motherboard 5. slide the battery out of the brack
Reverse the step after 10 minutes and the bios should be reset. On first boot you are going to need to reset your clock, settings etc.
