Bios password is something you set in bios level that is even before the operating system is loaded the system will need this password to confirm if you are the authenticated password. Were you changing the settings in bios ? you can remove / disable Bios password but you will need to remove and fix back the lithium battery. Note All the bios settings will be lost and have to be configured back.

Hey, Just wondering if you have any ideas of by-passing hp650 notebook bios lock. HP has been no help so far and have said I void my warranty because of forgotten pass. Can you please help me. thank you....

Hi Steve,

If this is indeed a bios password and not a hard drive password, then removing the CMOS battery for around 30 seconds should wipe the BIOS and BIOS password, This isn't easy though, you'll need to take the laptop apart to remove the battery.

It's location can be seen in this video: at 8:48 you can see the CMOS battery at the top of the board, looks like a large silver watch battery.

Hope this helps.
