Question about HP Compaq nx9030 Notebook
How to reset BIOS password?
Where is the rtc battery in nx9030 ?

1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.
2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).
3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.
4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.
5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.
Caveat: All settings are set back to factory standard.
You'll have to enter a correct date/time and change the settings to your needs.
Note: pls strictly keep to the sequence.
Re-starting with the main battery and or RTC-battery inserted will spoil the job.
