master code for administrator password or power on password for HP Pavilion m6

@numerofigo

 

At the password screen, hit enter 3 times and you should receive a 'halt code' - post back with this code.

master code for administrator password or power on password for HP Pavilion m6

Hi,

 

In that case, I'm guessing that this is a  business class machines such as a Probook or Elitebook. 

 

If that's correct, these notebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case.

 

If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

 

Regards,

Have you tried resetting the system board jumpers?

 

If not, see the guide on the following link.
