Compaq mini "enter CURRENT password"

HP Recommended
Compaq mini 110
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Compaq mini 110 immediately goes to "enter CURRENT password" after post.

 

I've seen this problem before, and just noticed that some people have gotten the PW from this forum by using the S/N. So, here goes...

Hi:

 

Restart the PC and see if entering this unlock passcode allow you to regain access to your PC...

That is the correct passcode but you nned to remove it.

 

 

Use that code to go into the BIOS.

 

Disable all passwords that are enabled.

 

If asked for the CURRENT password use that code.

 

If asked for NEW password just hit enter.

 

If asked to VERIFY password just hit enter.

 

Save and exit.
