Question about HP Compaq nc8230 Notebook
HELP!!! My kids locked me out. And of course no one knows who did it.
I turned my laptop on and it said Power on Password. Took it in and they said I might as well buy a new laptop. It will cost $200- $400 for a BIOS Chip. Is there another solution
The above website will provide you with a service manual. The service manual should be useful in locating the CMOS battery which I would recommend removing for several minutes (and you might as well take it out for an hour or so). Also make sure that nothing else is connected; that includes the battery and power adapter.
If the service manual indicates that the laptop has a jumper that can be shorted (two pins that you should touch with a screwdriver simultaneously to short it), then you should do that to clear the CMOS info. Hope this helps!
