Elitebook 8470p
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All, 

I've bought an Elitebook 8470p second hand from a company in the Netherlands.

The bios is protected with a password

For resetting this i contacted HP but they can't help with product out of warranty

I've found several options here on this forum but none of them work.

I even found the SMC.bin file (i think) but i'm getting an SMC command error screen

I realy need to get in the bios for enabling KVM

hi

sorry but

d. No posts shall include instructions or directions intended to bypass or subvert security measures, including passwords, locking mechanisms, fingerprint scans, etc., or to bypass any safety measures.

 

We cannot be sure, for example, that a computer has not been stolen.
If there is no way to get the password, from the seller, it could indicate that it is.
Possible not, but you will not find a solution here
sorry
