Open Question

I have a Compaq NX 8220 laptop with a Bios version HP 68DTV ver F.OF. 15/09/2005 and I am trying to upgrade the BIOS but every time I try I am told to enter a password. I have not set up a password on the BIOS and the laptop does go straight into the operating system without asking for a password first. I am using a download from HP SP1493.exe to carry out the upgrade. Please can you advicese how I can get round this problem of the password. Thanks Len margan

How can i clear bios from hp compaq nx 9010 notebook


Are you wanting to clear thr BIOS password? IF so the only way to do it on a laptop is to pull the CMOS battery out. Then boot the computer up to BIOS and it should be cleared, then just reinstall the battery.
