system won't boot system disabled 3046e0f5

pavilion 17-F053us
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was locked due to a forgotten password.  I got into bios setup and changed administrator to nothing. Now it asks for administrator password and says it is invalid even when i use the old or try nothing.

Hi,

 

Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc.

 

The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly - see Page 118 of your Maintenance & Service Guide.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

You're welcome

 

Unfortunately reinstalling Windows will not help as the password is set in the notebooks firmware.
