bios password reset Elitebook 8560w

Dear Customer,

 

Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you.

 

This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case.

 

Please have a look at this link.

Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

 

 

Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again

Regards

Mahemac

I do not have access to boot from CD or USB, so I require the BIOS password

@cgamarra

 

There are no master passwords for ProBooks and EliteBooks.

 

Contact HP.

 

  http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/contact_us.html

 

Or download these files.

 

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zu4kdgxm052l87d/AAAMi-kfX4AVH8oTCbsOM4X9a?dl=0

 

Insert clean USB flash drive.

 

Then run USB Image tool.

 

Choose the flash drive then click on RESTORE.

 

After restore remove flash drive.

 

Insert flash drive into locked laptop and boot.”If HDD is installed remove before booting.”

 

At C:\OUTPUT   type CD..   “Then hit enter”

 

Type HPBR   “Then hit enter”

 

First thing is to save your settings.

 

Select #3 re-program.

 

Press “S” to save system information.

 

Type HPBR and hit enter.

 

Select   “FIRST RUN”

 

Then select model.

 

After reboot repeat same as above but this time SELECT “SECOND RUN”

 

Some instructions here. “If you cannot boot from USB there are instructions to make a bootable HDD.”

@cgamarra

 

Then you have 2 options.

 

Replace the motherboard.

 

Or replace the BIOS chip.

Hey Reo, so I am in your program, when I type CD it just says C:\OUTPUT

 

Then when I type HPBR and hit enter it says "Bad command or file name"

 

Any idea on what I may be doing wrong?

 

Thanks!
