HP/Compaq Ops:: How To Enable BIOS Power On Password For 8730w
Apr 17, 2009
I have the latest BIOS for this model (HP EliteBook 8730w), and I have no problem creating a password for the administration of BIOS, but how do I setup a simple BIOS power on password, so that anyone who starts the PC will be promted for a password.

I have HP 2000-412NR and I removed my bios power on administrator password by typing my old password and in the new password field, I put empty (did not type anything), and saved it. After power on it still ask me the administrator password, and now no matter what I typed, I always got incorrect password, disable code 52559062.
I had an admin power on password on a T420 that contained a character that isn't allowed in the newer version (old password had a dash - in it) and I didn't remove the password prior to update so now I can't get into the BIOS as admin - are dashes changed to something else during update or can I revert back to a previous bios version (if so where are they located)?
The exact message is Power-On Password and a symbol of a key.
I am trying to clear this Power-On Password message on a HP Compaq nc8430. Searching though this forum and on the Internet, everyone mentions I should remove the laptop battery and the internal battery to clear this password. I have do so and left the battery out overnight and the password is still there.
I have found another mention of a IC or similar that is used on laptops to be more secure. I have also found mention that some laptops can be reset by a "jumper" or by touching points on a motherboard.
I have an HP Elitebook 8730w with microsoft XP OS. I use the lap top to run an instrument so it is on at all times. We have turned off the powersave options, the MS updates and the time sync with the MS website and it still freezes to where Ctrl alt delete doesnt work.
I got a hold of a Compaq Evo n620c in which the BIOS was password protected. I took out the CMOS battery and had it out over 24 hours in the hopes of reseting the BIOS. No luck. I was able to put in another HDD that had Windows XP installed, tne tried to flash the BIOS. I tried in the HP drivers site and was unable to flash the BIOS. The error read that the BIOS on this machine is password protected. Question is...How can I flash the BIOS or otherwise get rid of the password prompt at BIOS? Is there a generic password to do this or is there another way?
Had a venturous youngster tamper with my laptop yesterday, and that person managed to set a bios password. The machine will boot with out it, but it is requesting an administrator password in order to access the BIOS settings. Heh, I wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't decided to load Ubuntu 10.04 for the first time.... Needed access to the boot order.
So, does anyone happen to know the back door password or any other option for me to get this fixed? It would be easy if I could pull the mobo ID from the OS, but HP thought ahead on this and I fear that they may have done the same thing with the password issue.
I have a Compaq 6710b that was given to me for work. My friend put a password on it that requires me write in before the computer will boot in order for me to log-in to my work account. I believe that this is called a BIOS or CMOS or a boot password. My friend said that it is for extra security. I know the password and have no problems getting past this point, but I do not want to have to enter this first password to get to where I log-in onto my work account. The computer was not like this when I got it and I do not want to take it to a tech at work and explain to him what my idiot friend did. The friend does not know how to change it back so that I do not have to enter this password.
I have a Split 13 x2 M110dx. It's been awhile since we've used this PC and I was getting it running again when I ran into the ADMINISTRATOR PASSWRD OR POWER ON PASSWORD problem. As you know, the 3rd try locked me out with the error code SYSTEM DISALED 63389696. Now what do I do??
