This should be done by a trained professional as it can only be achieved by taking apart your notebook completely (removing all components such as battery, ram, hard-drive, etc.) and removing the RTC (Real-time Clock) Battery for 5 minutes, which will clear all bios settings, resetting them back to default.

 

I would recommend that you view your notebook's service manual (pg. 29 - Unknown user password) and contact a trained computer technician to have this procedure performed.

Re: How to reset Bios password

Hi there! Good day!

All you need to do is enter 3 incorrect passwords and get the error code generated. It will be used to to generate a master password.

Send the code to the link below and see further instructions on how to get the bios password for your computer. They can be able to provide easy-to-follow instructions on how to get your BIOS password.

@a33safart33,

 

Be aware that this is not supported by HP and you try it at your own risk.

 

Try entering:           27879288
