@Microkasm

 

For that model you will need to contact HP in your region and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

 

Phone >> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html

 

Chat >> https://support.hp.com/us-en/contact-hp

 

When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.

 

Please DO NOT try to remove the BIOS/RTC battery as the SMC.bin file is time sensitive.

bios lockout probook 4440s

Hello, I contacted HP, got the smc. bin file, but i wanna leave the forum with something that i may need additional help with. Ok, before I first time contacted you i tried updating the bios, it updated but i believe that this is the reason it did not work for me because the update reset the time and date. I cannot get the old bios back on the computer. Any suggestions. I will be contacting HP again, LOL, any more suggestions. Hey you guys are great thank you.
