Hi,

 

To reset the bios password on your machine you will have to request a smc file from HP Business Support - there are no 3rd party utilities that will work for your model.

 

HP will email the smc file to you, along with instruction on its use.

 

To contact HP Business Support, start on the following link.

Regards,

Please follow these steps make sure USB key is formatted FAT 32.

 

PLEASE MAKE SURE DATE AND TIME IS SET CORRECTLY BEFORE RUNNING THIS TOOL .Please make sure USB key is formatted to FAT 32

 

Please follow these steps to clear BIOS password:

 

Save the attached file with this e-mail to USB key as SMC.BIN and insert to the system (or save the file to the root of drive 😧 HP_TOOLS)

- Press "Windows Key + Arrow UP Key + Arrow Down Key" all keys at same time and turn on the system

- Release all keys and press F10 at HP logo to go to F10 setup to “Reset BIOS security to factory default”

 

SMC command failure reasons

Wrong UUID is provided

Try different brand and smaller size USB key 2gb or smaller

USB key is not formatted FAT32                                              

BIOS , date and time should be current and updated.

SMC is disabled in BIOS.

BIOS  Password can be reset on best efforts basis by HP.

 

The reset process is as follows : 

`

1. You wll have to take a picture of F1 screen

 Please reboot the unit>> Tap F1 key >> get in to system information>> Take a picture of the screen>> send it to HP support.

 

2. HP will send you an utility which would be a SMC bin file along with instructions.

 

3. Follow the steps and if in case it does not work, the system board on the unit needs to be replaced.
