How to reset bios administrator password

Hello @psyian

 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome!

 

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 (For HP Mini, should be 10 characters, for others should be 8 characters long) :

 

 

Please, take note of the system disabled/halted code (write it down).

 

 

Visit this web site >> https://bios-pw.org/

and enter the system disabled code

Click on "Get password" button there and you will receive your unlock code. Take note of the HP computers password for unlocking and enter it in the system disabled screen , press ENTER. This will unlock your BIOS/reset security settings and PC should be able to start Windows (if WIndows can load).

 

Let me know how it goes. Provide your update/feedback.

How to reset bios administrator password

I have tried your method 22 times on an HP 10P010 mini laptop with no success.  Each time I have to turn the computer off, then restart, put in the suggest passwords, and then get a different error code upon the third try.  What am I doing wrong?  Please help. as HP wants $215. 49 to reset it and I only paid $300.00 for my grand-daughters Christmas present.  (Somebody changed the password, but she doesn't know who.)  Thanks, in advance.

How do you enter it into the System disabled screen?  The system is locked. All I can do is power off my HP 1500 notebook.
