Reset BIOS password (HP ProBook 6460b)


I can't get access to the BIOS, asked password... I want turn off password, I don't need them, but can't get access. I set it in long time ago. How I can access now? I see themes where users give s/n and got some master password, it is possible for my notebook? My freind told me, take off battery, I unplug-in cap, but didn't find BIOS battery... Please help me.

Re: Reset BIOS password (HP ProBook 6460b)



Unfortunately there are no 'backdoor' passwords available for the Probook series and as the password is stored in non volatile memory, removing the cmos cell will have no effect.  Your best option is to contact HP regarding this issue.


If you live in the US, contact HP Here.


If you are in another part of the world, start Here.
