Re: Reset bios password

Dear Customer,


Please contact HP technical support at 866 625 1175  ( for elitebooks)

They will require the  UUID and serial number from the F1 screen and will be sending a file to reset the BIOS password


Or you could also start a chat session using the below link

chat at www.hp.com/go/ispe

Hi, Please contact the Voice support  on 866 625 1175 and provide them both Serial number and product number which would be useful to pull up the unit's information, as said we would need the UUID for the issue.
