I need a bios password

HP Recommended
spectre x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The bios is locked, when you enter the wrong password 3 times, it says:

 

System SN: [Personal Information Removed]

 

 

I have seen fixes to this issue on here, but I couldnt figure out how to reply to that thread.

 

 

thanks for your help!

Please try this Password :  

 

qetg3g3o47 ( Its O as in Oscar after 3 and not Zero)

 

 

Steps to be followed:

  1. Use the unlock code posted above to enter the BIOS
  2. Disable all passwords that are enabled
  3. If asked for current password - type the unlock code
  4. For new password, just press ENTER key
  5. Repeat the same for verify password column.
  6. Then leave the BIOS by saving & exit option to save the changes.

@zachdasher,

 

 

1. Shut down the notebook

2. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery

3. Hold  down the Power button for 30 seconds

4. Plug in the Power/AC Adapter (Leave the battery out for the moment) & Start the Notebook

5. At the password screen, hit enter 3 times and you should receive a 'halt code' - post back with this code.
