Not exactly, the old pentiums need to have bios reinstalled from dos command screen, or from a disk. not autoinstall like the newer pentiums and above.

Find your rtc and remove battery(looks like a large digital watch battery)leave it out for a couple of minutes then replace it , bios will then then be then be reset to factory.you can then enter a password(new) or leave it blank(no password)the battery is housed some where on the motherboard,sometimes on top sometimes underneath.on a evo I looked at the other day the battery was next to the ram slots so very easy to get to.without checking service manual cant tell you exactly where yours might be located.

Power-on password on hp 8510p


Power On Password & Hard Disk Password
With your next laptop you should protect it with a Power On Password AND put a password on your hard disk. This will stop anyone from using your laptop and if they move the hard disk from your laptop to another laptop they cannot access the data on your hard disk with the hard disk password.
BUT you need to write down or remember these passwords; if you lose or forget them you cannot gain access to your laptop.
There are no backdoor passwords to remove these passwords.
To set up or change these passwords, go to the BIOS configuration - then security configuration. http://techtips.salon.com/reset-hp-laptop-bios-password-1476.html

Ok i was given this hp pavilion n5495 as the old owners where getting rid of it but it has a bios password set and i cant find any battery for cmos reset and the only jumper there is doesnt do a thing so...


To be honest with you, HP would be your best option to get the password removed BUT whoever's name it's registered in, they are the ones that would have to call to get it removed otherwise your only option at that point is to get another motherboard.

Need a bios password for a hp pavilion ze4400


You will have to reset your BIOS password. To reset the BIOS read the information from this link

In case of your HP 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.

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!

you have to do something called a system recovery this will delete all your memory but you can get help saving the memory from geek squad if you are willing to pay $100 anyway the system recovery requires a disk if you dont have it get it from tech support but who know there could be other options
