Re: Reset bios password for HP EliteBook 8760W

As you might surmise, security is a large issue for mobile products and any easy way to bypass a BIOS admininstrator password is counterproductive and can lead to larger problems. I would encourage you to open a support case with HP and inquire about how to obtain a tool to reset YOUR specific unit

Re: Reset bios password for HP EliteBook 8760W

Hi,

 

I also have problem with the BIOS password on my EliteBook 8760w. I want to boot a Windows 8.1 from USB or DVD drive, but in the BIOS the USB and Optical Drive booting options are unticked, and I can't change them if I don't access as a BIOS administrator. How can I change the password or even better question, where was the password being provided to me (I'm a first customer).

 

Thank you in anticipation.

Gremi.

 

There are no master password generators for ProBooks or EliteBooks and most business class laptops.

 

You will need to contact HP.

Or look at this link.

Or replace the BIOS chip.

Sorry there is nothing else we can do.
