  2. Move the jumper to the Clear Password setting.
  3. Turn ON the computer to POST screen.
  4. Turn OFF the computer.
  5. Move the jumper to Default.

Welcome to HP Forums @safrangroup,

 

Thanks for the post. 

 

I understand that you are looking to reset the BIOS password for your computer. 

Not to worry, I will be glad to assist you.

Have you contacted hp phone support?

 

To reset the BIOS password you would have to contact HP phone support for a hardware service as the motherboard may require a tattoo/Bios Flash.

Any other way of unlocking the BIOS is not authorized by HP.

 

Keep me posted.
