HP 530 BIOS password reset.

[ Edited ]

To remove the BIOS passwords you need to short the 2 contacts marked RTC RESET.

 

Remove the memory cover.

 

Look for the 2 contacts between wireless card and memory.

Remove main battery and AC.

 

Use a small flathead screwdriver to short the 2 contacts.

 

Passwords are gone.

 

If STRINGENT SECURITY is enabled this will NOT work.

 

Let us know if it works for you.

Used an x-acto knife because the blade is thinner than on a screwdriver. When attempted to short with the screwdriver, the short did not happen because the spacing is extremely small. Accepted as Solution.

Re: HP 530 BIOS password reset.

Because we did not have access to a finer point screwdriver, when the x-acto knife fitted between the tiny space, that worked. My brother placed the tip of the x-acto knife a few seconds  a little to one side (left or right) to secure the short. Next, the laptop turned on and the request for a pwd had cleared. The laptop was updated and till this day has not had any problems. My brother learned not to fiddle with the keys anymore to prevent same error or something else to happen. What I learned is that with patient - no rushed positioning of the thin object (x-acto knife)  the short can be completed. I had tried two times with smaller screwdrivers, even the ones used to repair glasses, and still the center point could not be accessed. Since it was my brother's laptop, I asked him to do a last try. After watching the video I had reviewed and viewed where the tool needed to be placed he thought of using the sharp  x-acto knife.

 

I am not a computer savvy and am a bit apprehensive when it comes to touching the motherboard.

 

Like I suggested before, do not rush and stay focused on reaching the center of the two tiny connectors (for lack of a better word).
