delete bios password pavilion 7 dv7

HP Recommended
Pavilion dv7
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Trying to delete the BIOS password that I set up - I do remember the password and can get into the BIOS screens.  Don't want to change password to another, just want to directly boot without needing to enter a BIOS password.  Can't figure out how to blank / delete / remove the password from within BIOS.

Hi,

 

You can remove the need for a power on password as follows.

 

Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start-up menu and then select f10 to enter the Bios menu.  Use the arrow keys to highlight the Security tab and hit enter.  Use the arrow keys again to highlight power on password and hit enter. 

 

Enter the current password and then for the new password, just leave this blank and hit enter - do the same for the confirmation field.  Press f10, select to save the new settings and hit enter.

 

Regards,
