Hp 255 G5 bios password

I got a cheap laptop that was listed as needs os, but it is asking for administrator password or power on password. I have tried everything from removing the cmos battery (for an hour), to code generators, nothing qorks. The system disabled code is "I 95021691". I hope you guys can help.

I know we used to provide Disabled Bypass Codes -- but we don't do that anymore.

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.

So you're saying I have to pay a ton of money for a motherboard for a laplap that isn't worth it. Because hp doesn't want to help unless we pay? Gotcha, good bye hp. I'll stick to a brand that actually helps it's consumers.

Oh I get it. I will let everyone know this also. The system board will not be replaced. But I will get charged for a replacement. Just for them to enter the code themselves. Which cost nothing.

You do not KNOW the system board will not get replaced -- you're just BADMOUTHING HP because you're angry they won't fix your mistake for free!
