Bios password reset

Hp elite book folio 1040 G1
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
I accidentally typed in a wrong password for one of the many HP laptops bios admin passwords I was setting up. How do I reset the bios admin password?

Bios password reset

Hi,

You are going to need to contact HP who can send you a smc.bin file to boot and change  password.

Ask them to escalate your support case.

 

Hope it helps,

David
