PIN No Longer Available

HP Envy

Please help if you can- Ive had my laptop for approximately a year and when I went to turn it on last night it updated and is now stating my PIN is no longer available due to a change in security settings.

I can't remember my password and its asking for a USB that I backed my password up on (???) Which of course I have no clue what or where that could be.


Can anyone help please

I know we used to provide Disabled Bypass Codes -- but we're not allowed to do that anymore.

I wish we could help you, but sorry, due to changes in Community policy, we are no longer able to provide any assistance with password reset or recovery issues.

In addition, according to the Community's Rules of Participation:

4d. No posts shall include instructions or directions intended to bypass or subvert security measures, including passwords, locking mechanisms, fingerprint scans, etc., or to bypass any safety measures.

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.
