bios admin password

Product Name: HP laptop
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I have a HP laptop that a friend set a bios admin/power on password that he no longer can remember. After 3 failed attempts I receive a system disabled 93381416 code. Can you please advise me as to how I can remove this password as my laptop is now worthless.

Re: bios admin password

code worked and a message came up saying boot device not found- please install an operating system on your hard drive. I have a windows 7 disk and put it in. Should i now reboot or i have the option to press F2 for system diagnostics? What should i do?

Re: bios admin password

Hi,

 

The easiest way to boot from the disc is as follows.

 

Insert the Windows 7 installation disc and Shutdown the notebook.

 

Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to enter the Start-up Menu and then select the Boot Options Menu ( f9 ).

 

Use the arrow keys to highlight the CDROM option and hit enter - if prompted to 'Press any key to continue....' - do so.
