I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Dear Community, I have a HP Elitebook 8730w and I forgot the BIOS password. I tried all I could remember, I slept several days over it to remember, but I am lost. I contacted HP support but they told me they would not help with a file like smc.bin (which was mentioned in many forums). Any idea how to solve the problem ? I need to change the HDD but do not dare to do so as I cannot set up the new HDD or SSD in the BIOS. Help would very much be appraciated. I do not direclty post P/N and S/N due to privacy regulations in this forum. But if somebody can help me, please send message and I will post all the necessary details. I am student and have low budget so I was gladly using this older but fine Elitebook. But now i am real trouble.

I am currently having an issue with a number of HP EliteBook 8470p machines where the wireless won't enable again after the computer has been put to sleep. LAN/WAN switching is enabled and I can still use the LAN card without any problems. The wireless drivers haven't been updated the only changes would have been some Windows updates. Disabling and enabling the device in device manager doesn't make a difference. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

A:Wireless issues HP Elitebook 8470p

Which version of BIOS is installed? Had you considered updating the BIOS? Have you installed the QFE and essential system updates provided by HP  applicable to the version of Windows that is installed? I woud have linked to available versions, but I am not aware of the installed OS the notebooks have installed. Check in the web support portal for the  HP Elitebook 8470p notebook to see what is available. Best regards,erico

Eapen, Welcome the the HP Forum. I must assume the TouchPad worked before -- say earlier today, yesterday, some time in the recent past. It may be "tangled" and need a quick driver reset:Close all your programs and Shut down the computerDisconnect everything (little Unifier for the keyboard / external mouse can stay)Perform the Hard Reset for your notebookBoot the computer and log in NOTE:  This does NOT wipe out your data.  It is just a "clearing of the cobwebs". With a bit of luck, that will fix it up. ====================================================================================Next, consider the TouchPad may be disabled somewhere:Enable / Disable Touchpad If everything "looks" right, then take a look here:Fix Touchpad / ClickPad NOTE:  There are links to the relevant HP documents within the file.  Reference:  Drivers, Software & Firmware for HP EliteBook 8470p Notebook PC   Click the Kudos Thumbs-Up!It is a nice way to say ?Thank You" for the help.Although I strive to reflect HP's best practices, I do not work for HP.

So a little background history, about a year ago I plugged in my headphones and no sound was coming through so I went to the playback devices and disabled the laptop speakers in attempt that it would default the headphones and play out of them, which it did.

About a year later I finally stopped using the headphones and enabled the speakers again but for some reason sound won't play out of the laptop anymore. I don't know what caused this problem but I for some reason if I play games on my laptop no sound comes out anymore. Using Skype and watching videos anywhere else works but as soon as I launch a game there's never any audio.

I have barely any knowledge on computers and would like someone to guide me through and help me fix this! Thank you in advance.

does it possible to remove bios password on HP elitebook 6930p, CMOS battarey removed but did not reset password, can you help?

A:Hp elitebook 6930p bios password

You'll have to contact HP for that. You'll likely have to prove ownership before they help you bypass the password though. Removing the CMOS battery on a laptop won't reset the passwords. They are stored in an eeprom instead of an eprom like on a desktop PC. eeproms don't forget when you remove the power. Thats done on purpose to make it hard for a thief to gain access if your laptop is stolen or lost. Unfortunately for you Forum rules prevent me from saying anymore or helping you cheat it. Those type or discussions aren't allowed.

Hi,  had to replace motherboard with one bought on ebay.  Ebay seller said up front he didnt know the bios password.  Anyway Everything works ok after finally getting it back together, except the fingerprint reader.  I guess this is linked to the new motherboard, and I dont know if having the bios password will help me or not.  There are a couple of places in the setup menus where I could enable or reset the fingerprint reader.  But if anyone has any better idea as to how to get the fingerprint reader working I may be able to get by without the bios password at all. i still have the original Motherboard if that makes any difference to anything.

You'll need to call Dell with verification of ownership -- it may not be worth it though, since the call will cost about $60, which is probably about six times more than the entire system is worth.
The other option is to replace the mainboard - which is probably well under $60.

The video card in these laptops is the AMD Radeon HD7570m.  We have updated the BIOS to the latest version released by HP as well as tried to completely remove all video drivers and install the latest from HP and AMD. Has anyone experienced similar issues or have any input on a fix for this issue?

Already saw differents answer but never by the one guy that say.. "Yes, i already upgrade my dual core cpu to quad core in my elitebook 8470p"I saw documents with info from hp with "3610qm 3630qm 3720qm and 3740qm" support for 8470p and 8570p models in this forum.There in JUNE 2012, The product overview:http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c03373336Said only 3610qm and 3720qm are compatible with the 8470p.But recently document i saw from hp (and i think is the reference guide more actual, january 2013 ) to 8470p and 8470w models like this:http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c03659338-3.pdfthere is not clear, even this document show that only 8470w support quadcore and for 8470p show only dual core models..so i need confirmation before buy quad core model, anybody can confirm if its possible??Thanks a lot

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, the hard drive crashed on it and I bought a new one and was going to install a new operating system on it. When I inserted the Windows 7 disk I find out it won't boot from the cd drive. I go into bios to change the setting and there's a system admin password that I didn't know about or don't remember that's keeping me from changing any bios settings. I've researched and tried everything, is there anything I can do to bypass this password so I can boot from the cd drive?

A:how do i reset the rom bios password?

 Hi, http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01701270 Clearing the BIOS passwordThe BIOS password is used to protect BIOS settings from unwanted changes. If you have forgotten your password you may disable password checking.To erase the BIOS password follow these steps:Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.Locate the jumper labeled Clear P.W. The jumper is found at the lower right edge of the motherboard.Move the jumper on jumper Clear P.W. to pins 1-2.Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.Hold down the F10 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to change or clear the password.After changing or clearing the BIOS passwords, remember to reset the jumper to pins 2-3.

They'll take it back, but I'd like to get it to work if I can. I have the SKU, serial an UUID. Thanks

Need bios password checksum is 2B65BB6A

A:Need bios password reset

Hi, Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc. The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly. The only other option would be to Contact HP regarding this. Regards, DP-K
