Solved!

hp split x2 needs bios password reset

HP Recommended

When we went to shut down our HP split x2 it said Update & Shutdown or Update & Restart. It did the update and then shutdown. When we went to get back on the blue screen asking for an Administration password or Power on Password. We used the one we thought was suppose to be right and it's not working. How can I reset it so I can get into the computer?

Hi,

 

If you enter an incorrect password 3 times ( or just hit enter 3 times ), do you receive a 'halt code'?  If you do, post back with this code.

 

Regards,

Thanks,  That worked!!! 

 

is there a default Win8 "Administrator" password that HP uses so I can reset the password of the person who owns this unit?  I tried Hiren's and the version I have does not support Win8
