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 Customer, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks  or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee  https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26983620/Java_Bios/biosunlock.html

Hello all!I've performed a BIOS update on Saturday to the latest one on HP's website, and ever since the laptop takes a long time to boot, flashing the LED code for "System board failure" - 5 blinks - and after a while boots normally to Windows. Since I had recently added 4gb ram, I tried removing it and re-seating the original 4gb stick, to no avail.Tried disconnecting the battery for 30s as I read in another post, no luck.Tried resetting bios to default, no luck. Both memory test and HDD test pass without errors.  Should I try to re-flash the BIOS, or is there any explanation for this odd behavior? Thank you very much for any help!

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.

I need to turn on virtualization technology but I can't do that. Please, help me to get access to all settings. Model: HP Elitebook 840 G1Product number: H5G26EA#ACB

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks 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, DP-K

Terboman. As I said on the other forum. There are no master password generators for ProBooks or EliteBooks and most business class laptops. Since you do not want to replace the bios chip. Contact HP for the .bin file.  http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.???html?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0003 Regards, REO

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. Power jack mounting got broken on it. thanks in advance, sarge

Hi, I don't know if the square lens piece that covers the webcam can just fall out but you can look inside & see the camera.I'm wonderung how to repair it. I read a long 8470 repair pdf doc but it never covered that part. It's still under warranty but don't really want to ship it both ways or know if its covered. Still I'd like to know how itcould be repaired. Can you just glue another cover on it or do you have to replace the entire plastic display bezel? This is what its supposed to look like http://img5.pcpop.com/ArticleImages/0X0/2/2520/002520015.jpg Mine is missing the square cover to the left side of the light. I hate leaving it open like that. Won't it get dust on it? Any help / advise is appreciated.

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.

Hello @OskarB98? Welcome to the HP Support forum. I am afraid that there is no other options other than HP Support for business. Most business class notebooks (including yours Elitebook and Probook) have better security. You will have to contact HP Support for assistance on removing the password. Here is how >> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/business-support.html HP Business support should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file and instructions which you can use  to reset the password. I am sure they do not need any kind of proof - just be somewhat pushy. In order to generate this BIN file they will need your serial number, product number, UUID, etc... found in the startup menu (F1) .  Hope this helps. Let me know if you face any issues.

A:BIOS HP EliteBook 840 G2

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks 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, DP-K

First: download and try to install Bios update F.63, it will fail - do not worry. Second: check what type of the ROM family and ROM date do you have, press F10 on the notebook during startup to run the Setup Utility, and then view File/System Information.  You should see: 68SCF or 68SCE, check twice and write this down on paper. Third: boot laptop back to Windows- go to C:\SWSetup\SP76206  and rename 68SCF or 68SCE to ROM      (only one file, if you are not sure go to step: Second)- go to C:\SWSetup\SP76206\hpqflash  and rename 68SCF or 68SCE to ROM      (only one file, if you are not sure go to step: Second) Finally:go to C:\SWSetup\SP76206  and right click on HPQFlash and run as Administratororgo to C:\SWSetup\SP76206\hpqflash  and right click on HPQFlash and run as Administrator Sit and watch, do not touch your laptop to the moment you see Windows login.

The only thing I found so far is a customer advisory talking about the number of beeps and whatnot that will happen during the BIOS update.I gather from the advisory when I read between the lines that customers must have been getting worried about all the beeps and shutting off the machine during the update which will end up with you having a corrupted bios in an unusable PC.Note that is not what the update says, it just says that future updates will have more user-friendly behavior.

Have you actually tried a different MXM video card and there is a whitelist block? I can tell you that HP has no other BIOS for the laptop but there may be a vbios flash available on some enthusiast site where you can flash the vbios of the video card to work on an HP system.

A:Need the reset for password on Latitude C400, bios revision A06, original password.?

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.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

You are speaking about BIOS password which you set up in the BIOS?
As far as I know you cannot remove the BIOS password if you don?t know the old BIOS password.
In such case just the Toshiba ASP could help you? just the Toshiba ASP technician could remove the unknown BIOS password

I'm having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L300D. After I reinstalled the HDD it would beep. To solve this I went into BIOS to look and see if the board had some sort of intrusion setting. When I exited the BIOS and restarted I know get the Enter Current Password (with a blue background on a black screen) with continuos beeps. The thing is it seems to auto enter in 10 characters (*) and then stop. There are no other options.

I have searched unsuccessfully for any info about this and I cant even find where the CMOS is located which I think is soldered onto the board.

Has anybody had any similar experience like this?

Call me a dunce....but I have a problem. I locked myself out of my administrator account and I can't go into safe mode because I also forgot my BIOS password. I really don't want to have to open up my computer and remove the BIOS, is there any other solutions that don't involve turning off my computer?

Im running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3

I updated the bios after I had notified from Toshiba about the Bios v3.50. The process was done by the Toshiba Utility software, and after the reboot there is "Password =" on a blank screen and it not recognise my BIOS password, writing "Not certified".

I have also tried the HDD password but no luck.

What can I do now?

A:Satellite Z30-A-12R BIOS password not recognised after BIOS upgrade

Hi

Before trying to update the BIOS, all passwords should be removed!
BIOS password can be removed by authorized service provider available in your country.

But the unknown HDD password cannot be removed anymore.
In such case the HDD isn?t accessible and cannot be used.

Sorry mate but in my opinion you have only one chance to get the BIOS password removed; you need the ASP assistance.

My laptop in an old Acer Aspire 4715z

I've tried removing the CMOS

I'll be waiting for your replies..

I was given a computer to work on and it turns out that her now ex-husband locked it, both the hard drive and the Bios. It is a Dell laptop. She was concerned about what was on the hard drive but I am almost 100% sure there's no way to unlock it???
As for the Bios, my desktop can be bypassed by either taking out the battery or resetting the CMOS jumper. On her laptop I took the battery out but it was still locked. She was hoping I could buy a different hard drive and the computer still be usable.

Any suggestions?

A:Bios password/Administrative password issue

Dear Customer, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks  or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

A:How to remove BIOS password bios on Satellite Pro M30

I'm afraid to tell you, but for this, you have to contact local ASP.
Because it is not that easy or possible the way you would do this on deskopt PCs.

This is why you have to take your machine to ASP. The guys there can remove the password.
