I have an envy laptop m6 and when I turn it on a blue screen comes up that asks for an administrator password. I have tried it multiple times and then it says system disabled and gives the code 85508345. Is there a way to reset the password?
I Have forgotten notebook password, bios system disabled .i want to install fresh operating system , user password i know that is "asdf1" but by using this password i can not change boot sequence.
I have a pavilion dm3 that we have not used in a long time. I plugged it in and it asks for an administator password or power on password, after three tries it says system disabled and gives a code 68878601
I have a Pavilion G60 that is stuck with the following number . I tried the BIOS password request 3 times and received: System Disable . How do I get around this? I do not know what the password is and tried password, enter, and then PASSWORD before the number showed up. What do I do next?
I changed my HP to boot with legacy CSM, but I couldn't boot from the Windows 7 boot disc. The laptop was shipped with Windows 8 configured for UEFI boot before my change. The screen after boot is blank and now I can't even get to the bios menu.
I have tried a Windows 8 USB recovery drive, but the computer doesn't seem to try to boot from flash, even with the hard drive disconnected and the CD tray open.
I watched a video of a man disassembling an HP Pavilion completely down to the base plate, but I did not see a back-up or RTC battery anywhere in the computer. If I could find the bios back-up battery for removal or reset the bios somehow with the hardware, i would do that. I waited for 4 hours without the main battery attached without any change. At this point I don't know if this model Pavilion even has backup battery. How to reset the bios to default UEFI setting without a bios menu? Note that pushing F2/F8/F9/F10/F11 and a whole bunch of other keys does not bring up the bios menu at boot time (like it did when it was in UEFI mode).
My next steps are to use the HP Recovery Media application on a 2nd computer to create 6 Window 8 DVDs and see if these will boot from the CD. If that doesn't work, I'll contact HP support and see if they can send me a custom recovery disc.
It seems strange to me that I can't even get to a bios menu in legacy mode. Is this normal? I suspect that my configuration change corrupted something and no booting will work any more. If booting from disc doesn't work, I think I'm stuck with trying to drain whatever back-up power source keeps the bios in-state, however long that is.
