forgot/lost BIOS password, what now?

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP 17-cb0700nd
Microsoft Windows 11

Hi,

 

My laptop is now 3 years old and I haven't entered the bios since my first setup. I can't remember which password I used back then.

I have tried every password which I ever have used, to enter the BIOS for the last couple days with no succes.

I looked for online tips to see if there is a way to reset or delete the password, but they all look like old methods so I didn't try it.

 

Could a factory reset (hp cloud recovery) help me out with entering a new BIOS password or is there an other way?

 

Laptop info:

HP Omen 17-CB0700ND.

Windows 11 (21H2)

Current BIOS version : F.46 (09-05-2022)

 

 

Thanks in advcance!

In accordance with the rules of participation that you and I signed, we are forbidden to assist you in matters concerning recovery or hacking to find a password of any kind on you notebook PC.

 

A factory reset will have no effect on the BIOS as it is firmware and the operating system is software. There is a distinct difference between the two.

 

You will need to contact HP support directly for assistance.

 

The support portal for your notebook is at the hyperlink below this line.
