Power On Password In Bios

HP Recommended
HP 19 2113W
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

Put a new hard drive in this computer. It worked fine, but we could not get the power-on password when it started up to go away. Started it one morning, went in to Bios and thought I was deleting the password and now we can not get on at all. 

I need help! I have tried every possible number, code, even the cmos battery and power button. What else if anything can I do???


Thank you

You have the Lupin-C - Motherboard 




Use the jumpers below the CMOS battery to remove the password.


I am not sure what exact combination it is but give them all a try if you need to???

I'm writing this because I could not find any info on the CMOS jumpers to take off the BIOS password. I am troubleshooting an HP19 All in one desktop unit which has a Lupin-C Motherboard, with Windows 10 OS. The default setting on where the two jumpers sit are 4&6   and 3&5 (I have provided pictures). The two jumpers will be right next to each other at the default setting. Please unplug the computer from power source before messing with the innards of the computer.


To reset the BIOS password, move the jumpers place on 3&5 to 1&3 (please see the photo). Turn on the computer and hit ESC key which will give you the option to go to the BIOS. I had success with this.


Turn off the machine and unplug it from the power source. Place the jumpers back to their default placement.


Hope this helps.



The picture above is the default setting. 2 jumpers above the CMOS Battery, in between the CMOS and SD Card slot. Please note the numbers on the motherboards.

the picture above shows how jumpers should be placed to reset the BIOS Password.
