Bios password is there any way of finding/resetting bios password on these boxes? I just purchased my brand new HP Entertainment laptop 31st Oct., 2007. Whenever I try to enter the BIOS SETUP, I'll be asked for the password which I don't know so I couldn't remove windows vista preinstalled on my laptop. what can I do? Product name = HP Entertainment dv6426us. Thanks. Big-Sam1

ACER ASPIRE 5630 BIOS FIX
I had the same problem, with a friend's laptop, an acer aspire 5630.
I unscrewed everything I could but failed to find the cmos battery
I reset the password by shorting out jumper 3 on the motherboard.
this is to be found under the memory modules which can be accessed by removing the largest of the access plates found on the bottom of the unit.
(you may want to ground yourself first in case of static)
Pull gently outwards on the two retaining clips at the edges of the memory module(s), this should allow them to spring up for easy removal.
jumper 3 looks like two gold interlocking number threes - this design makes it easy to short out by touching lightly with a metal object - I used a small phillips screwdriver.
Good luck
Neil

Hi...
You know that your Laptop is still under warranty, re-installing the system will void the warranty.

If you like to take the risk then find the CMOS battery under the keyboard or the bottom part of the Laptop, covered with screwed openings. But usually HP places them under the keyboard... find the locks of the keyboard and free them...

Remove the battery and short the positive and negative plates of the battery holder... that should reset the password of the Laptop.

GOOD LUCK.... Don't forget to Fixya me on the ratings...

I know some methods to reset bios password.

1. The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the mainboard. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes.

Hp probook 4310s bios password reset pls


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

,I have an hp pavillion dv2000, entertainment pc....i let someone upgrade to windows 07 on my computer...not the best decision i have made. Unfortunately, since this i apparently need to now reset my bios...


probably best to go back to square one reformatt and install the operating system yourself where you will have a chance to set a new password your engineer should have given you the password--its the only way

HP Pavilion N5425 Password Reset


a password just switching on automatically i have not heard before. usually bios passwords have to be turned on and set in the bios. if you are working with a machine that has a system/bios password the only alternative is to contact hp and let them assist you. be mindful they will ask for you to verify ownership and possibly even provide a purchase receipt. this is to prevent theft of laptops. if the unit is out of warranty, they may even charge you. in the event this is a windows logon password there is nt password reset software that can allow you to reset the administrators passwords. so...if the password comes on immediately and does not allow you to proceed to windows you need to contact hp. there really is not easy way around the bios password with a laptop.

goodluck!

BIOS password for HP Notebook 530 laptop


Check with HP if they have what is called a TPM - trusted platform module. This is a chip that is coming by default on Sony's and a few others. If by chance this is what he applied a password to, Sony will tell you that you have just purchased a very expensive paper weight. The chip must be replaced. This is a last resort of course.
There are many sites that offer "Back Door" passwords which are default for the manufacturers while in production. But sometimes you can get lucky & get one on line.
Another way is to remove the cmos battery for 1/2 at least. This should reset the bios,which then if works go straight to the bios and create a new bios password or none at all.
Some people I know have gotten their pc's to boot with boot software. This is worth checking into. Just remember, it's all about security now with identy theft ect..... So it may not be easy or at worst --- possible.
Goood Luck.
