Hp Elite Book 8470p how reset bios password



For that model you will need to contact HP in your region and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.


Contact Support >> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html


When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.


Just to note:


Do not try removing the RTC/BIOS battery.  It will not remove the password, but it will reset the clock - as SMC files are time coded, a large disparity between the system clock and the time encoded in the SMC will cause it to fail.
