Find the system reset button....if u can find it then remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes at least 5. then in your post it will show you a mask systems had been reset and you need to configure your bios.cmos. if you know how then just select what you know is right for your system. then reboot and your password is gone.

    if you cant find the main board system reset botton then just remove the battery for at least 5. later place the battery back and power it on. you will see a dialogue telling you that you have made changes or incorrect settings in your cmos/bios. if you dont know how to configure properly then just find the tab/select "load fail safe setting". after doing that, change your system date back to cuirrent because it will reset to the date the bios was created. if you dont change to correct date then your windows and antivirus will fail at boot. so be careful not to boot your windows with the wrong date still there. then exit the cmos/bios setup saving on exit. restart the system and it will not ask for your password again. hope this helps you

    reseting your cmos/bios should do it. replacing

    your cmos/bios chip in effect you have replaced your system with a factory setting chip, thus the same thing if you have just reset the system cmos/bios. anyway, if you find it easier to replace the chip, so happened you have the same one.

Hi; I need a little more information from you. There are 5 variants of the Omnibook XE2, appended -DI, -DD, -DE, -dc, -DB. Please consult the bottom of your laptop to find the correct model number.
Once you find it, please select the appropriate driver download page from this link: (
Have a nice day.

Bios password

To reset the BIOS password 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.

Fogotten password

If it is the Windows password that was forgotten, you can google Offline NT Password Recovery & Registry Editor and use that to blank your password in order to gain access. The download is an ISO image that must be burned to a CD, then you boot your computer with this CD which runs a small dedicated linux kernel and text-based application that will allow you to change your passwords on the accounts or blank them. The change functionality does not always work correctly so you should just choose to blank the password instead.

Omnibook 4150 password

One Time, I forgot BIOS PASSWORD OMNIBOOK 4150XE2.
I had to find a way to clear the CMOS on my own.
(1) Remove the memory access panel.
(2) Remove the sticks of memory.
(3) I believe it is the top stick, but it may be the bottom. There are two solder points that stand out.
(4) With a small screwdriver or other tool, short these two contacts.
(5) Replace the memory and put the access panel back on.

Your CMOS should now be cleared. I have only done this on an XE2, but chances are there are similar ways on other HP laptops.

Make much attention... it can be dangerous.
If you want, try this solution, BUT YOUR RESPONSABILITY.

H.P. will provide a solution FREE OF CHARGE even though the laptop is out of warranty.....unbelievable I know !!!!

You have to try and give proof of purchase, very important, then a code is given which you enter in the bios. Then you contact H.P. with the resultant code and then your bios password will be unlocked........

Dismanteling case

You need to remove the keyboard... BE CAREFUL though. Look at the corners of the keyboad area, and you SHOULD see a small area to place a flat blade into so you can pop it up. DON'T just remove it... it has a small ribbon cable that connects to it and if you break this connector you will not be happy with yourself. You need to remove the bezels on the top of the PC as well. As with all Laptops, be VERY CAREFUL and check closely for the plastic tabs that lock everything in place. If you break one, it will lessen the stability or even make it impossible to put it back together.
PLEASE follow this link to the manual for the laptop to hlep you know how and what you need to check for:

Thank you for allowing me to assist you! /D
