How to clear BIOS admin password HP Elite 2530p?

Hi

Is there a way to clear/reset bios admin password in HP Elite 2530p?

I tried to remove cmos battery, and then unplug the laptop battery, but the admin password is still there

 

Thanks

I have a probook 4520 with the same issue....removed the batt for 1/2 hour, but power on password remains. I have the password and I can use the machine, I just want to get rid of it!

Actually.....I found another workaround! The admin BIOS password was not set, so when I went into setup as a guest, it prompted me for an admin password. Once I set it [and wrote it down!], I could go in and delete the accounts......boots as normal now!

HI, josher711

I know some solutions to clear bios admin password.

 

1. http://www.biospasswordrecovery.com

2. Guide:  Bypass BIOS Password

3. Guide:  How to Recover BIOS Password or Crack CMOS Password

 

By the way, if you are familiar with computer hardware, you can try to open the pc box, and take off the cmos battery on the mainboard. Then the bios will be reset to the default status and the password will be clear.

 

Hope to help you.

Re: How to clear BIOS admin password HP Elite 2530p?

I was told from support:

 

1. Prepare the computer for disassembly
2. Remove the RTC battery and restart the Notebook

(I 've tried to restart with battery, and AC... On start it says Enter to continue, F1 to startup, I 've tried both - to wait in bios, or start booting to OS)
3. Wait approximately five minutes, shut down the Notebook.
4. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer.
5. Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any battery packs at this time.

(Again On start it says Enter to continue, F1 to startup, I 've tried both - and after that tried to wait in bios, or start booting to OS)
6. Turn on the computer.

(actually it turns on automatically after plugging AC in, and turns on "twice")

 

- but did not work for me.
