Bios password set to an unknown default

folio 9470m
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)



  I am having trouble accessing the BIOS setup of my PC. Tried the CMOS battery method but it didn't work and a default password was set. I believe it has to do with the one it was manufactured with.


Contact support seems inexisting 😞 so anyone help, please.


I really need to access the bios to add booting from flash as I want a Linux distro installed.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

If you are unfamiliar with how the Community's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.
Thank you for visiting the HP Support Community.
