I have forgotten my bios password and after attempting 3 times I am given a system diabled code of 88071148
is there any way to get a backdoor code for this? One of my co workers told me that if I have the code i could look up the backdoor password to access the bios but I have been unsuccessful in finding this so called codex.

Using this 8 digit code does not require you to go to the BIOS to change anything.
It will remove the password automatically.

That is a HEX halt code and we do not have a master pass code generator for that type of code “YET.”
You will need to contact HP in your region 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.
