My client has an elitebook 8440p and has been using the fingerprint logon for so long he has forgotten his bios password. There is no setup of security questions or usb spare key available.
We can get into the bios via fingerprint but cannot remove the bios password or regain this password. From what I understand, even though he can log in with his finger and access the bios with his finger, he cannot remove or change his typed password.
From other posts I saw that HP emailed a file to remove the bios security to the user in similar cases. I am looking for who he should contact, via email, phone, etc, to get his bios security removed. Again, he can access using his fingerprint only at this point and wants to remove all security at this point.
I have been looking at the Dell Latitude e6400, Lenovo T410, and the HP Elitebook 8440P. Dell is slow on the tech refresh of the Latitude and the T410 is not as solid as I would like (Plastic, Loose Battery, Squeaky Keyboard).
I am learning that you really cant customize an HP unless you don't care about the price tag. I mostly use Business Apps, Cloud Services, and Demo software/hardware products (Demos in Virtual Box Machines). My main criteria is a light weight, durable machine. Of course the faster the better!!!
An 8440P with i5-520M, Integrated Graphics, 1600x900, 4GB Ram, and 250 GB HDD is over $2K when customized.
Pre-configured with an i7-620M, NVIDIA NVS 3100 (512 MB), 1600x900, 4GB RAM, and 320 GB HDD is $1500.
Will the i7 and NVIDIA significantly reduce the battery life and run warmer?
How can i change the email quicklaunch button to open an email client other than outlook.I set mozilla's thunderbird as my default email client during its installation, but the quicklaunch button still opens outlook.
Recently purchased a refurb HP Elitebook 8440p, and noticed that even though the mute button works the quick key just above the keyboard is always orange. Is there a way for me to correct this so it shows orange only when muted and green when not muted?
I have a HP Envy X2 that is prompting for a password to enter the BIOS setup. I apparently have lost the password. I am able to boot windows, but cannot enter the bios setup. How may I reset the password?
I'd like to use this machine for Oracle development (as it's predecessor was certified for Red Hat).
When building the machine from the options I've chosen the SUSE OS, that I plan to replace later with Oracle Linux. I've also eliminated all unnecessary hardware to reduce any incompatibilities and maximize the battery life which required deselecting Windows.
However, in terms of updating the firmware for the machine, no one does linux firmware updates which means that I have to have access to Windows OS, which means having to purchase a copy of W7 and somehow getting hold of the necessary HP downloads, hopefully free from the download area!
I've read a few articles that say that it is possible to use the 120GB mini-card SSD as a bootable drive as long as it is SATA and NOT PCI. The build options have the drive as a SATA which is also confirmed in the QuickSpecs document as well as it being a SATA3 / 6GB/s.
Whether the mini-card SSD can actually be used as a boot drive?
I have a HP Elitebook 8440p Notebook PC with Windows 7, 64 bit. I had to reinstall Windows 7 and all the necessary drivers. My remaining issue is the Missing Base System Driver. The message I get from Device Manager is:
PC1 bus 68, device 6, function 2. The driver for this device are not installed (Code 28).
I have a EliteBook 8470p and i lost my bios password. When I press F10 for enter in BIOS, after 3 failures a screen appears and ask me to add code (with virtual keybord). I have no code. So, it said computer is locked and I need to restart.
Product Name : HP EliteBOok 8570p System Bios Version 68ICF ver F.45
Recently I purchased a Dell Latitude D830 motherboard as a replacement for the damaged one in my own system.
The seller didn't tell me that the system has a customized bios and a password, instead he announced it as 'password free'. The board is working and I can enter the BIOS but all settings are locked with a password.
As the seller refuses to take it back, I need to reset the system. The first owner of the board is known and I have the service tag ready. Is there any chance to reflash an original DELL BIOS and to reset the password(s)?
Where can I find 24co2 chip on system board of the dell inspiron 700m? Somehow the BIOS has been blocekd . When I run the laptop I can see a white inscription "Enter Password" on the blue background. After typing wrong passwords three times I can see an inscription "Please enter master password". I've tried to generate a master password but without success.
Lost my admin BIOS pwd. Created case for support. They`ve sent me bin file to put on USB or HP_TOOLS partition and power up system with "Windows+ ArrowUP+ArrowDown" buttons.Howerver, when i power up system like this, nothing changes in startup at all.Do those buttons really mean something?I see from Internet that autoflash BIOS combo is Windows+B and Power.
