HP ProBook 430 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi ,
I recently switched on my older hp device:hp probook 430 g2, and I tried getting into bios setup but it prompted for a bios adminustrator password. I dont remember putting any password on it and so I trued different methods to remove the bios password to no avail. I even disassembled my laptop to remove the cmos battery and tried booting to bios, still it prompted for a password. And no,it does not give me a code after trying to inout a password 3 times. It just says system locked and to press the power button for a restart.
