Pavilion P6-2310EF Bios Password

Pavilion P6-2310EF
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Greetings,

 

I'm currently experiencing some issues with my operating system. I need to change some settings in the bios of my P6-2310EF but a password is asked.

I read a few posts on this forum and it seems that the password is factory set. Is there a way to get the password for this model of Pavilion?

 

Thanks in advance,

Best regards

There was no BIOS password set at the factory. 

 

See the Clear the Password section on the following motherboard document.

Thanks for your answer.

However, it does not seem to work. I tried the reset password jumper and the clear cmos jumper. The system still asks for a password...

Unplug the power cord, remove the RTC battery and  press and hold the power button for about ten seconds.

 

Once that has been done, repeat the clear the password steps.

 

 If that does not resolve the issue, then there is something you are not doing correctly or the motherboard has a problem.

 

Your desktop is from the 2012 model year, so a component failure is a possibility.

Hi:

 

The reason you can't clear the BIOS P/W is due to the fact that the instructions to clear the P/W are incorrect as written.

 

I have rewritten the instructions for you below, and that should resolve the problem...

 

To erase the BIOS password follow these steps:
 
  1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
  2. Move the jumper to from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3
  3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.  The BIOS P/W should now be cleared.
  4. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
  5. Then move the jumper back to default.
  6. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
