Find the original sales-receipt, to prove to HP that you are the owner, and it's not a thief, in possession of your stolen laptop, that is contacting them. Then, contact HP, and ask for assistance.

Try factory reset if you don't have anything important on it. To do so try either F10, F12 or F8. press the button repeatedly before the windows logo shows up. Read and follow instructions If none of the F buttons work try holding the ALT button while pressing one of the other repeatedly. Once you reset to factory you should not have a password.

Mind you hopefully previous owner didn't replace hard drive or delete the factory reset partition. Other wise you could be screwed until you get a system disk (Windows).

Using Computer Setup to Reset CMOS

To reset CMOS through Computer Setup, you must first access the
Computer Setup Utilities menu.

When the Computer Setup message appears in the lower-right corner
of the screen, press the F10 key. Press Enter to bypass the title
screen, if necessary.

-- If you do not press the F10 key while the message is displayed, you
must turn the computer off, then on again, to access the utility.

A choice of five headings appears in the Computer Setup Utilities
menu: File, Storage, Security, Power, and Advanced.

To reset CMOS to the factory default settings first set time and date,
then use the arrow keys or the Tab key to select File > Set Defaults
and Exit. This resets the soft settings that include boot sequence
order and other factory settings. It will not, however, force hardware
rediscovery.

See the Desktop Management Guide on the Documentation CD for
further instructions on reestablishing passwords. For instructions on
Computer Setup, see the Computer Setup (F10) Utility Guide on the
Documentation CD.

For more details and pictures see the help pdf:

Trying to reset


Hi, it seems that the recovery partition is not working.You may have to get the Recovery CD's to do the Factory Recovery.If you have not created the Recovery CD's from the Recovery manager software, you can purchase it from the Acer website.

The Alternate method for starting the Recovery on startup is using the combination of ALT+F10 ( some models its ALTgr ) on startup.Press and Hold down the ALT( Left jand of space ) and at the same time keep on tapping the F10 key till you get the message " Windows is loading files".Just follow the On screen Instructions to start the Recovery.

Unknown hp power-on password


Did you do all these steps in order?

1) Remove the computer power pack battery. Remove the keyboard.
2) Remove the RTC battery. Wait 5 minutes. (I would wait longer, maybe 15 minutes.)
3) Reinstall the RTC battery. Reinstall the keyboard.
4) Plug the AC power into the computer. (DO NOT INSTALL THE POWER PACK BATTERY AT THIS POINT)
5) Turn on the computer.

This should reset the password and also all CMOS settings.

Factory settings


When you first turn on your computer, press the F10 key until it boots into the recovery partition. Once there, select advanced then follow the onscreen instructions. Warning: This will erase all of your data.

Some newer HPs use a different key then F10; if F10 doesn't work, then look on the screen it should tell you which key to press to start recovery.
