This can be unlocked at a HP service facility, proof of ownership is required.

Optionally I may be able to give you a code to bypass the password if you enter it wrong 3 times, it should give you a system disabled message with some numbers, send me the numbers and I'll check.

If you do not get this message then I can not bypass the password and you must contact a HP service facility or HP tech support to find out where to take or send your laptop for unlocking.

    when i turn on the computer it shows power on password with a key and unable to enter a password

  • Ekse May 30, 2010

    noting happens when you try to press a button? Try pressing any 4 buttons and then press enter, does anything happen? do it 3 times? does anything happen?

    if noting happens the keyboard might not be connected or the laptop might be faulty.

  • jdodd671 May 30, 2010

    i put 3 different numbers in and pushed enter and on the third one it is showing an asterik type emblem

  • Ekse May 30, 2010

    Has the keyboard gotten wet? did you find this laptop somewhere?

    Try pressing keys around the keyboard to see if more stars appear 1 star = 1 key press / letter /number.

  • jdodd671 May 30, 2010

    it just does on the third time i forgot to mention when i first turn it on i do get a bios screen with 3 options my son bought this computer and his girlfriends brother got mad at him and caused this

  • Ekse May 30, 2010

    what options is it offering you?

  • jdodd671 May 30, 2010

    F9- boot device menu

    F10- rom based set up

    F12- network service boot

  • Ekse May 30, 2010

    okay, so the laptop has a power on password set, write compaq and press enter, repeat that 5 times you should get a system disabled message with a series of numbers.

  • jdodd671 May 30, 2010

    doing the same thing when i type compaq it does not show what i am typing it still goes 3 times and stops with the star

  • Ekse May 30, 2010

    Okay, so its time you give a call to the girlfriends brother and sort this problem out, or send the laptop to HP as we can not unlock it any other way.

Forgot password for my ocean netbook

Hi there, my name is Lisa and I'd be happy to do my best to help.

The only thing I can think to suggest is a fresh install.

To do a fresh install (you will lose files) try tapping /holding the F11 key immediately after powering on the laptop to boot into Recovery partition on HDD to start over with a fresh Factory settings. If you are offered System Restore at any point, decline and choose System Recovery instead.

You can take a look at the following ink to see if you can find an alternate solution. I didn't read through the entire article but it looks like it might be helpful:

Forgot password don't have usb can you offer useful letters of suggestions

Here's how this admin unlocks forgotten Windows password:

Start your computer and wait for the Windows Login or Welcome Screen. Once it shows, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and then type Administrator in the pop-up username box, but leave the password column blank. Next you could successfully log onto system. The following steps for resetting the forgotten password are quite easy. You can make it from "Start->Control Panel->Users Accounts".

If the method above can't help you, Windows Password Reset Deluxe is a great choice .

Hello my compaq 610 starts to power up then shuts down and the power light flashes from yellow to blue it makes know difference if it is plugged in to mains power or not any help would be appricated ...

It may be an internal hardware issue. Possibly overheating or a damaged component on the main motherboard. If you have a warranty for the notebook, I recommend using it.
