Elitebook 8460p - Default BIOS password?

I just purchased an Elitebook 8460p and it seems to have a BIOS password by default. I can't find one in the startup guide or anywhere on the packaging, did I miss something? Is there a standard default BIOS password?

Hi:

 

I never heard of that before. I have bought new HP Elitebook notebooks and they just fired right up.

 

I suggest you contact HP support because I know of no default BIOS password nor is there a way to reset it on these new notebooks.

Paul is correct there is no way to just reset it.

 

You would need a file with a clean bios and write it to the security chip using a SPEG.

 

SPEG is a multi device programmer for SPI Serial Flashes. It can be used as stand-alone programmer, as well as for in-system programming (ISP/ICSP).
The package contains two components, the software and the hardware used to interface with Serial Flash chips through SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) protocol. The software communicates with the hardware interface via PC's parallel port (LPT).

Good luck.
