Re: HP Compaq Mini 110 BIOS Password Reset

Hi,

 

I have a Compaq mini 110 which locks me out at boot up and says

 

Enter Current Password Now:

 

After 3 entries, it halts with CNU9356DOJ

 

Please help me. I am at my wits end as I have important data on this machine.

 

Thanks.

Re: HP Compaq Mini 110 BIOS Password Reset

Hi David PK,

 

Thanks, but it refuses to work.

 

Still throws up CNU9356DOJ.....the O with a dot in it.

 

Thanks in advance,

Dev

Re: HP Compaq Mini 110 BIOS Password Reset

Hi Dev,

 

You have posted the 9th digit of the halt code with a letter 'O' - it may well be a 0 ( zero ) so try entering:

 

e9lofqgt1w                  ( Note that the 3rd character is a lower case L and the 4th is a lower case letter O )

 

Regards,

Re: HP Compaq Mini 110 BIOS Password Reset

Dear David,

 

Your are a lifesaver!! It worked!!

 

Do I have to enter it every time I boot up now?

 

If in London, I'd love to buy you lunch, friend for life.

Re: HP Compaq Mini 110 BIOS Password Reset

Hi Dev,

 

You're welcome and glad it helped - unfortunately I don't get to London very often but many thanks for the invite

 

You can remove the need to enter a password at boot by entering your bios menu ( tap away at f10 as soon as you press the power button and use the code to gain access ), select the Security menu and change the password - enter the code for the current password, for the New password leave the field blank and just hit enter, do the same when asked to verify.

 

All the best,
