15-p291nu Bios Administrator Password Reset

HP Pavillion 15-p291no

Hello I bought a laptop from my friend but it is asking for BIOS Administrator password.  I entered the wrong password for 3 times and got a "System Disabled" code: 378453FA

 

I'd really appreciate your help! 

 

The model is:

HP Pavillion 15-p291no

Sadly, it didn't work. I tried it for 3 times and got a new code:

@Peraee

 

Sorry but we do not have password generators for the new HEX codes.

 

Removing the CMOS/RTC battery will work on most HEX codes.

 

If not then.

 

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

When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.
