Hp mini power on poswerd

If you do not have the password, or do not remember your password, your only recourse is to contact HP and, once you provide them with proof of ownership and purchase, they may be able to guide you to a resolution for this problem.

Power on Passwords are great, so long as you don't forget what you set it to be. Otherwise, you have an expensive doorstop.

Hope you can get this resolved,

Hi . locked the bios on my laptop now i dont know the password please help and pci is Problem

One thing you can attempt to try is to remove the RAM and hold down the power button. This will, sometimes, reset the BIOS so that the password is erased.
If that doesn't work then you may have to contact HP for a better way to do it. They may use some proprietary (read: expensive) software to accomplish the same goal.
Good luck.

I just want to know how can i reset my bios password ?

Hi there,

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password.

Hope this helps.

Hp 5750 powerup password

removing the battery would not solve the problem

You would have to find a jumper Green in color near the CMOS Battery area,It would read PSWD on the motherboard

It will be connected to pin 1 & 2, change it to pin 2 & 3 - this will reset the password,

Now clear the CMOS by pressing the power button

Then restore the jumper back.

Hi my HP G6000 laptop wont turn on, when i press the power button on the lights flicker for a second and then nothing


The problem is from either the battery or the adapter .This is how to know;

First remove the battery of your laptop,plug the adapter,connect to electricity and put it on If the laptop turns on, then the battery is faulty and should be changed

If it doesn't come on,test it with another adapter. If it comes on then the adapter is faulty and you should get a new one

Power-on password forgotten! How can the computer be started?

The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask that person who borrowed your Compaq for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you Compaq is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.
