HERE THE TOPIC.

My BIOS was with no password. I have a HP840 G1 which was sold to me without BIOS Password (confirmed by seller technician). I used to enter BIOS with no psw, so that was the "original situation". I do swear I never entered a Bios Psw from Bios interface.

 

Recently I ran some of the HP software using App named "HP Support Assistant"  to keep my laptop updated

For some reason to me unknown, now BIOS has an Administrator Password set.

 

So I am now wondering what is the cause of psw being set after these HP sw updates.

 

Can anyone help in understanding the issue above well explained?

 

FURTHER REMARK: I am fully aware that HP support cannot give direction to password recovery, and this post is not meant to ask for this.
