Don't know the Power on Password

I just bought this HP Pavilion zd8000 and the guy who sold it to me told me the Power-On Password but now I forgot it.

Is the only solution to this replacing the system board or is there another solution?

Please advise.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Don't know the Power on Password

Remove rtc battery for a few mins then replace this will reset bios to factory default and wipe any (all) passwords.
there is a program called spotmau powersuite which can do this via bootable disk.
rtc battery looks like a large watch battery located on motherboard usually underneath keyboard.but on some models in ram compartment.

Re: Don't know the Power on Password

Is the bios protected by the same password, usually it isnt. If you can get on the bios you can disable that HDD password. Other than that I dont know much about HP's and their set ups, sorry.

Can i adjust the fan speed in the bios on my hp zd8000

You don't have to reduce the FAN speed, because the Fan power works in PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). I.E if the CPU processing is increasing due to high process load, the fan speed changes accordingly to maintain a CPU normal temperature.

I dont remember the password bios HP pavilion zd8000

Two ways to reset the Bios/CMOS password are as follows: Basically option number is recommended. 1. Mechanically, by removing all power to the Bios/CMOS thereby forcing it to reset itself to its stored defaults. You can do this by removing the CMOS battery from *********** board or by resetting a jumper on the motherboard itself (referred to as a "clear CMOS" jumper)
2. By using a program to either locate and identify the password. This programs are referred to as password by-pass utilities or cracks.

Power on password

If you have not set a password yourself, contact the person who owns the computer or who sold it to you.
We here at FixYa do not help users crack passwords--we assume that if you are the legal owner of a machine, you should know the password or can contact the person who sold it to you.

Cant log on forgot user account password for hp pavilion zd8000

Oh, you must be an Administrator, right? If there is another Administrator account on the PC, it can restore your password through User Account Settings -> Manage Another Account.

If not, I have a complex way. First, restart the PC. When it shows the HP logo when booting up, press the button for Setup (it is shown at the bottom of the screen, and it is F8 on my HP tx2001au).

Now, don't get scared by what appears. It looks a bit complex, but it is very simple and easy.

Navigate using the keyboard. Press the right button to move to the Security section. Here, press Enter on the Administrator Password option. Now enter and confirm a new password and you're done.

See the bottom of the screen for the button for 'Quit Saving Changes' and the computer will reboot. Now, I guess you can enter the new password.

If this doesn't work, see online for ways to reset a password in Vista. There are some softwares to burn to a CD and use.

If it is an XP, I guess there is nothing to do. Just press Ctrl+Alt+Del on the logon screen to see the classic logon screen. Type in the username 'Administrator' without quotation marks and the password blank. Press Enter and enjoy.

Hp pavilion zd8000 blue death screen on windows defender virus scan

Listen up, I have had a pretty bad virus on my computer before where this guy hacked in and created his own user account on my computer! Will, I noticed that my computer was detecting any viruses! Thats because he put a virus on my virus detector, so it couldnt detect viruses! I downloaded a different virus detector and got his viruses off of my computer right away! Try downloading a different virus protecter and try that!
