How to reset bios password

Hi,

 

At the password screen, hit enter 3 times. 

 

If you receive a 8 digit 'halt code', post back with this code.

 

If you don't receive a halt code, you will have to Contact HP Business support - they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

 

Regards,

 

DP-K
