Shell.

 

If it is a BIOS or power-on password you have a few options???

 

There are no master password generators for ProBooks or EliteBooks and most business class laptops.

 

You will need to contact HP.

Or look at this link.

I have a master external USB HDD with his programs that I have removed hundreds of passwords with Mazzif's help.

 

Mazzif’s program will detect your UUID, Serial Number and model number then use that information to produce an .exe file to clear the password.

 

If you find it to be too technical then.

 

Replace the BIOS chip.

If you have good soldering skills order the BIOS chip. You will receive a picture of the chips location after purchase.
