Don't know my Administrator Password

HP 2000-2d19SX Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have this HP 2000-2d19SX Notebook PC.

My little brother messed with the BIOS settings and now there's this Administrator Password when booting that we just don't know (He also has no idea what it is).

Any way I could get it to work?


The Product Serial Number: [edited]

Thanks in advance!

Don't know my Administrator Password

@MahmoudAziz 

Messing with the BIOS settings would set a BIOS password, not a Windows Admin password -- and that is much worse.

 

I wish we could help you, but sorry, due to recent changes in Community policy, we are no longer able to provide any assistance with password reset or recovery issues.

Also please note that now, to resolve a forgotten BIOS password issue, a system board replacement is required -- and additional customer costs apply, HP has issued this post about BIOS passwords: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06368824.

In addition, according to the Community's Rules of Participation (which you can read from here: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/hp.rulespage😞

4d. 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.

For assistance NOW, you have to contact your regional HP Customer Support location directly as they will confirm ownership of the PC before providing any assistance -- something we are not able to do from here.
