Solved!

Power-On password reset??

HP Recommended
HP Mini
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I'm getting the Power-On/Administrator password on my old laptop and I was hoping to get it all factory reset. 

 

My 'disabled' code is 19133700

 

I was wondering how people are finding the new code to put in to fix it? Just for future reference, haha. 

 

And once I get the password changed or whatever, will I be able to do a regular system restore?

 

EDIT

I'm using windows 7, and this is an HP-Mini netbook. I'm not sure where the serial codes and stuff were if that's important... Sorry ! 😧

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.

 

Troubleshooting:

Incase if the Password doesn’t work please try a Hard Reset as follows.

  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. If you now see a password box, Please type the same Password I shared before and press enter

 

 

Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again
