Re: xe2 power on passsword
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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL OF THE DOCUMENTATION SINCE MISTAKES WHILE USING THIS TOOL CAN RENDER YOUR SYSTEM INOPERABLE AND MAY REQUIRE REINSTALLING EVERYTHING.
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.
or H.P. will provide a solution FREE OF CHARGE even though the laptop is out of warranty.....unbelievable I know !!!!
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........
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: http://22.214.171.124/files/omnibook/ob_xe2/XE2%20service%20manual.pdf
