Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I received a pop-up message to update the BIOS version from Version 1.02  2013  to Version 1.49Rev A  2019 

 

I have following the process until the pop-up window asks to enter the BIOS password. I don't know the password and I can't remember the password the time I bought this laptop 

 

I had tried many times still it turns Unsuccessfully 

 

Please I need your help if anyone can provide the BIOS password  for my HP Probook 450G1 laptop

HP Notebook System BIOS Update - Password

Hi:

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.

 

Most HP business notebooks including the one you have, do not generate system disabled codes.

Also, removing the CMOS battery will not clear the P/W.

HP issued this document recently...

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06368824

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


Rule 4.d...

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.
