Forgot BIOS password

find a disassembly video for your laptop and you want to remove the cmos battery, you can google for how it look. so remove the battery for 5 seconds then put it back in. this will reset your bios and you should have acces again.

Hi, @mocanumi 

 

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to help you, since HP will no longer supply the required SMC.bin file that is used to clear the BIOS password.

 

That was the only way it could be done. Removing the CMOS battery will not do a thing to clear the P/W.

 

HP issued this document recently...

Also the forum rules were amended on 1 March 2019, which no longer allow us to help with removing passwords.

Rule 4.d...
