I just bought an HP Elitebook 8530p on ebay. It was shipped with Windows 7, however I don't want to use this windows on it because its kinds slow and corrupt ( unable to increase laptops brightness and sound). (I planned to install win7 32bit ).

I need to access the BIOS setup but it is password protected and I don't have the password.

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to help you, since HP will no longer supply the required SMC.bin file that is used to clear the BIOS password.


That was the only way it could be done.


HP issued this document recently...


Also the forum rules were amended on 1 March 2019, which no longer allow us to help with removing passwords.

Rule 4.d...
