Forgot administrator password on dv7 with windows vists

Hello @clotty100ml

 

Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for your post.

 

Is this related to your Windows account password

or the BIOS start-up password ?

 

 

* If related to Windows account password, please check this HP article >> http://hp.dezide.com/ts/start.jsp?guide=cantsignintowindows.net&section=ccweb&sfs=tdoc&lc=en

 

* If related to BIOS/startup password before Windows loads

 

In this case, please enter some password (wrong password) 3 times, press ENTER and you should receive a new window stating system disabled and a code similar to this one  :

 

 

Please, take note of the system disabled/halted code - write it down and post it back here in the forum.

Please, try to enter this >>  41960339

as a response code.

 

This should let you enter BIOS, start your PC, unlock your BIOS and/or reset security settings.

 

Let me know if this works for you

Dear @Madvirgo

 

HP Stream does not produce codes in the same way as the model mentioned above in this particular thread. HP Stream codes start with the letter i.

For any code that starts with i , you will have to contact HP Support team for assistance in removing the password. This cannot be fixed here in the forum.

>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html

 

Depending on the case, the motherboard might need to be replaced or the BIOS might need to be reflushed. And under certain curcumstances, this may not be covered by the PC warranty. But please, check with HP first via call. If in the USA, call 1-800-474-6836

 

 

Hope this helps.
