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 - there are a couple of options.

 

  1. Contact HP Support starting on the link below.

  1. Alternatively, you may still be able to 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 55 of your Maintenance & Service Guide.

 

Regards,

 

DP-K

Thank you for the reply. The code you sent first didn't work and removing the rtc didn't work either. I already talked to hp support and they want 60$ to help me even tho when I first had the issues I still had 7 months of warranty left. I guess IL be waiting until I can find the new generator. Thanks again
