I just bought this hp steam at a flea market and I can't get it to boot up.. when I press F10 it asked me for an administrative password after putting in a bad password three times I get system disabled i74397165...please help
The difficulty in getting passwords reset is the main reason I advise AGAINST buying used laptops.
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. -------------------- For Admin password resets, you have to contact your regional HP Customer Support location directly for assistance. https://support.hp.com/us-en/contact-hp?openCLC=true
