You need to take out the RTC battery. First, unplug the computer, next remove the large battery, finally do the following

1. Prepare the computer for disassembly (above)
2. Remove the memory/Mini PCI module compartment cover
3. Remove the Mini PCI communications module
4. Remove the RTC battery from the socket on the
system board.
5. Removing the RTC Battery for 10 minutes
Reverse the above procedure to install an RTC battery.

Removing the RTC battery resets the BIOS which resets the password.

Look around the Internet for a blank administrator password CD. You can find various ones to download (like UBCD) and then create a bootable CD. Once that is done, simply boot, using the CD, and follow the prompts to blank the administrator password. Log in using the admin account and create a good, strong (but memorable) password.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution.

SOURCE: hp laptop 6720s indicates power-on password with a key icon

Sounds like the hard drive was locked, or the BIOS was locked. If the hard drive was locked, you must replace the hard drive. if the BIOS was locked you willl need to reset the bios. You can likely remove the CMOS battery to reset the bios.

Hello,

If you dont know the Power on password for your System, forgotten it, or its not accepting it

again, then you might have to reset your CMOS.

Which means you will have to unscrew your system, remove all cables supplying power to the

board, locate the CMOS battery and remove it for a few seconds, then replace it and screw your

system back.

This will reset your system's CMOS back to its Factory default settings.

(If you can't unscrew your PC yourself, you can just get a good technician to do it for you

instead.)

Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

Were can I find the RCT battery in a compaq 6720s? Actualy I have forgotten my power on password. so i want to remove the RCT battery but i can't find it. can you help me please?


Laptops dont store the BIOS password like desktops meaning that even if you find the Battery the password wont be deleted since its stored on a eeprom.
best way to go is to go to compaq they will help you if you have proof of purchase
