Laptop bios password reset

HP Recommended
elitebook 8570w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I forgot the bios password so  I tried to find a way to reset.


1. HPBR   > 8570w model not supported.


2. smc.bin > HP center in my country doesn't provide the smc.bin file any more.


Where can i get the smc.bin file?


If there is a way generating smc.bin file by myself, it would be the best solution for me.


Would anybody can solve my annoying problem?

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to help you, since HP will no longer supply the required SMC.bin file that is used to clear the BIOS password.


That is the only way it could be done.


HP issued this document recently...


Also the forum rules were amended on 1 March 2019, which no longer allow us to help with providing unlock codes, etc., to clear BIOS passwords. Rule 4.d...
