Did you follow the directions at bottom of page? Although the printed directions seems to conflict with the photo of jumper pin. I would follow photo. Wait 10 seconds before replacing to default pins.

Hi, @Manikandank :

 

The written instructions for clearing the BIOS password are incorrect on a few HP consumer desktop model series.

 

I reported this matter to HP last year and I guess they missed correcting this one.

 

I have modified the instructions below...

 

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