Got an old tab from a friend. She doesn't know admin password or much about computers in general. Workaround or bypass help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Question was asked before but site is recommending i ask again as it hasn't been answered for a couple of years. Thanks! 

 

Sorry. Lock num is 50878839

That is a Disable Code but we're not permitted to provide Disable Code bypasses anymore.

Passwords can NOT be recovered; instead, they have to be reset.

We are not permitted to assist in resetting passwords due to HP Policy.
