You should have created a floppy-disk (or USB flash drive) after you initially defined the password, so that you can now use that device to "reset" the password.
Or, search for "Nordahl Offline Password" -- it's a bootable CD that can "blank" an existing password. Then, boot from the 'C:' drive, and leave the password field blank, and you will be able to login, and then set a more-memorable password, and you will be able to create that floppy-disk (or USB memory-stick).
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in
during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain keyto enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there also
The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.Hope this helps
There is not default password as such but it comes up only when it is created.In order to get rid of the password we need to boot the computer to the BIOS .
Turn the notebook off and then when you turn it on or lets say as soon as you press the power button to turn it on start tapping the f10 key on the keyboard repeatedly till you get a screen that says BIOS SETUP UTILITY ,once you are on that screen press the f5 key on the keyboard it displays a mesage that says load default,press y for yes on the keyboard and then press f10 that displays a message which reads save and exit again pres y for yes and the computer restarts .Once it boots up should not for the bios password.
If this issue started with a motherboard error that appeared to be a faulty CMOS battery and then it started incorrectly detecting your memory and now is asking for a password it could be a faulty motherboard. If you are 110% you or anyone else has set a password on that laptop then I would say your motherboard needs to be replaced. It is a difficult process to reset admin passwords on most laptops due to a security chip that will prevent the trick of removing the battery from working. In all honestly if no one has set a password and the motherboard THINKS someone has then even if you reset the password you will still have issues. There is a small chance your CPU or RAM could be defective. But, again going back to it saying you have a password set that was never set. It just yells faulty motherboard unless someone has set a password without you knowing.
When you restart your PC, before it boots to windows on the HP logo , tap the F10 key to enter set up, Go to security option and disable to power on option. next time when u restart it would not ask you for a power on password.
If the system boots to a windows screen, then asks for a password, it's definitely NOT a bios password, but a windows operating system password. Either way, if we had it here at the shop, I could have it done in a few minutes; to bad you're not in Tulsa.
What makes you think it's a bios password?
