Mate has a crazy ex girlfriend who has placed a bios password on his laptop.
Been trolling the documentation for the laptop and cannot find any reference to
a BIOS password reset facility.
Can someone please point me in the right direction for this laptop.

Please enter the incorrect BIOS password 3 times and reply to this post with an error / halt code, so I can reset the password for you

Welcome to the HP Forums!
Thank you for posting your query in this forum, it's a great place to find answers.
I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know the code to remove the bios password.
Don’t worry, we will work together to resolve this issue and It’s a pleasure to assist you in this regard.
I would like to know whether you have tried the link posted by @ KNRK in the previous post. I recommend you to try that and check.
You would have to contact HP phone support for a hardware service as the motherboard may require a tattoo/Bios Flash.
Any other way of unlocking the BIOS is not authorized by HP.
Hope that answers your question and you have a great day!
