Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, would someone help me with BIOS password reset? I already tried removing BIOS battery, CMOS Jumper and also CMOS PWD, but nothing didnt reset password (removing battery only reseted password). And if it would help my version of BIOS is: J01 v02.28

If someone know what i should do please answer.

 

Thanks.

Does the CMOS jumper sit over 3 pins in a row, connecting #1 to #2?

Move the jumper to connect #2 to #3.

After a few seconds, move the jumper to connect #1 to #2.

Give it a try.

Please access: http://support.hp.com

 

Enter your model-number, and do a search.

 

Pick the "downloads" result from the search.

 

You should be able to download a "repair" manual, which, hopefully, tells you the exact procedure, which may involve booting the computer with that jumper removed to force the "reset".

 

Good luck.

I didnt find the driver/repair manual which could tell me how to reset password, but i found 2 programs which would do that: 

1. http://whp-hou9.cold.extweb.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71001-71500/sp71294.exe

2. http://www.driverguide.com/driver/company/Hewlett_Packard_HP/BIOS-Motherboard/index.html

 

Im sorry, i tried to find that manual on official page but i failed.
