Power on passwords are tough, but if you can get into the BIOS and set or make sure that your CD/DVD ROM drive is set before your IDE hard drive then you should be able to boot from a Windows installation CD, format the hard drive, and preform a clean install and start fresh. Otherwise personally I know of no way of hacking/recovering a Power on password, I don't even think removing the BIOS battery will do it as I believe it's stored in non volatile memory. But if not, removing the BIOS battery would be a last resort.
Good Luck though.

How do I uninstall poweron password?


Not sure I understand your poweron password issue. Is this within BIOS, or a program you installed in Windows?
If BIOS, then I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool can be effective.:
Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords biospasswordrecovery. com

Remove bios poweron password hp nx6310


There is a hardware work around to get past the BIOS password. All you need to do is to remove and put back the CMOS battery inside the computer. This will fix the issue.

I have a compaq evo n400c needs a power on password key


If you forgot your password then you have to take your laptop to hp service centre. Because the laptop need to be disassembled before one can reset the poweron password.

Power on password problem


there are several ways on which you can reset the cmos in your pc, most common ways are removing the battery (like what you did) or doing a short circuit on the battery or reset pins. However there are some manufacturers now that use a different method, I had a dell PC before where the reset pins are already shorted, to reset it, I had to remove the jumper, power the device for 10sec, power it off then put the jumper back, kinda odd but I guess that how dell wants it, you can try that method as well. there are some that requires a key or before it could be reset like what I heard on some HP brand computers, the use has to call HP, then they ask for the serial or something then give ot generate a key. The best advise is to consult the documentation or vendor of your laptop for details on how to get your reset your laptop.

cheers,

Power on password problem


Notebooks are tough. Some systems, like Toshiba, have a USB based dongle you can purchase to reset the BIOS PC startup password. I'm not sure how Compaq does it, but I would recommend you contact HP/Compaq. It's likely that they will require you to mail it in for them to take care of.

Sorry, I can't be of more help.
