My brother gave me his HP Pavilon DM3 notebook. It has an administrator / power on password set and is not known. Reading other threads, I incorrectly enter the password 3 times. My stop code is 66070780. Can some one send me the reset key number? Or suggest my options to getting pass this boot up issue?

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.

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.
