BIOS password for HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC

HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I have HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC and when I try to enter the BIOS to enable virtualization. it asks me for my adminstrator password, and I am 100% sure that I have never set a password for the BIOS. So, is there any password that can unlock the BIOS or anyway that I can reset the password for this the laptop.

I have already tryed " https://bios-pw.org/ " and it didn't work for me.

and after three trys it says "System Disabled" and a code that changes in the next three trys.

If you want me to indicate my serial number or anything that can help please tell me.

BIOS password for HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC

Hi,

 

Is your machine the one listed on the link below?

If that's correct, it will be generating a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc.

 

The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly - see Page 82 of your Maintenance & Service Guide.

 

Regards,
