Hi @IlyasMoussa

 

I provided you a reply in your previous thread. HP BIOS Config Utility will not help in this case.

You need SMC.bin file from HP Support team.

 

Here is your previous thread > https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Reset-BIOS-Pasword/m-p/6067606#M110822

 

Let's continue the discussion there.
