A: HP 6730B bios admin password problem

hi,
I asked for the same problem in this forum but my threat was deleted with the suggestion to read the Forum FAQs.
I read them but I didn't find why they did it. So I want repeat the question adding it to the yours one:

HP CompaQ nx9005
hash code [ 15656]
I need the system password

I wrote and I just wrote again at the hp forum about it whitout any help, and the hp chat doesn't start because of a bag (I'm not the only one having this problem).

I read all messages of the reference topic about the same problem (as suggested) but I didn't find my needs.
I think I will have to ask about it a lot of time. Hope to find someone who can help me.
thanks

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?

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 - see Page 115 of your Maintenance & Service Guide. Regards, DP-K

In the process of installing windows 7 Professional I discovered that I could not get into the BIOS or setup because it was password protected. I?ve tried a number of things including installing HP ProtectTools Security stuff and it seems that all that has done is to create more login passwords. I can now get into setup but as a user but not as an administrator and so I cannot change password. There is also another screen that shows up where I must enter a password and I?m not sure if that?s happening because of the HP Protect Tools that I installed and then removed or because of something in the BIOS. I?ve uninstalled HP Protect Tools and reinstall windows 7 and I still see both password screens. I attempted to update the BIOS using a file downloaded from the HP support website but cannot because I don?t know the admin password for access the BIOS.

We have two XPS12 9Q33 units that have the BIOS Admin password set, but no one left in the department knows the password. We've tried all the normal variants to no avail.
Yesterday I spoke with out of warranty support, and the gentleman was unable to help as from his documentation this computer has a Phoenix BIOS, while in reality all the units we have are AMI BIOS. We have 12 of these units, but only these two have the admin password set.
Does anyone know of a way to reset the BIOS ADMIN password? Not the system password, we have that, it's specifically the ADMIN password. Support yesterday was very frustrating in trying to get them to simply listen to what our problem was so I gave up on that and came here.

If your trying to change a bios setting or Reformat any of the newer Dell Laptop's you may run into this issue! There is an Administrator password you will be prompted for. I believe this is created at the factory and unplugging the bios battery no longer does the trick! I tried many different passwords combos and found that:

<dell> all lowercase and minus the brackets works for a few of the newer Dell Laptops

Good Luck,

A:Dell Bios Admin Password/Inspiron 1720

That makes no sense at all. If it were true then Dell would have to provide the password as part of the information it provides to customers when they buy the laptop. Anything else would subject them to being sued.

Hi, Unfortunately I'm not aware of any 3rd party utilities that work with this particular Model, however 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

I have an older HP900 laptop which is a nice size to take in our motor home. However, it overheats after running for about 15 minutes. I understand there is a bios update that turns the cooling fan on sooner but I can't get into the bios because of password protection. Any ideas on how to crack the password or any pins to short to reset it?

The laptop will run fine if I rais it off the table and have a fan blowing on it from behind. Cooling fan in laptop runs, but it only comes on shortly before a shutdown if I am not running an additional fan blowing under it.

thanks for any ideas or help

so, i have a 6530B that i got from a relative, and i must say, it is extremly difficult to work with... I want to do a factory restore, and to do so i need to get through the bios admin password. I cant even boot from a USB to do a fresh install... Would it be easier to have HP support help me with the bios password, or should i just put in a new HD and do a fresh install, using another pc as a surrogate for the install(cant get past bios on tis one)? from what ive read spending the day trying to find a way around the password, that there really is no workaround... Kind of obnoxious... but its a business machine so makes sense...

I recently found myself locked out of my system's BIOS having never set an admin password myself. Since then I've had many problems including forced reboots/physical memory dumps while trying to perform scans requested in the malware detection directions for this site. I don't know specifically what is wrong, but have had software detect anonymous users logging on to my computer remotely without appearing as users in the control panel.I've reinstalled the operating system counteless times and always find the same problems within hours if not minutes of installation completion. Finally, and I'm not sure if it's relevant, but Windows only recognizes some 148 odd Gb storage space on my 160 Gb hard drive. Also, the computer will boot normally, but not in safe mode or any other diagnostic condition; when trying this a screen comes up listing all installed drivers and computer freezes.Any help would be much appreciated.Thanks,DDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Ted Cassel at 15:50:36.10 on Thu 03/25/2010Internet Explorer: 7.0.5730.13Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.3574.3139 [GMT -7:00]============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcssvchost.exesvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exesvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\wscntfy.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\WINDOWS&#...

Hello guys!
Well, my problem is the following. I currently have the Administrator account and the guest account active. The administrator account is protected by a password that I "accidentaly" forgot (I haven't used that machine since some months). How can I enter to my admin account and change my password to something I remember (like 1234)?
I allready tried the Net user metod (net user John /add, net localgroup administrators...), but, as I guessed before I did it, the guest account don't have the rights to do that. Please, tell me what can I do.
Thanks you for your time

I am running XP Home.

Recently in an attempt to overcome a serious malfunction I opted to do a "repair"of XP.

To carry out this function I was required to submit an Administartor Password...this is a personal home computer and I don't have any Admin Passwords.

As I was unable to provide a password I could not execute the "repair"program.

Fortunately for me I did eventually overcome the problem I had but this raises a serious question re this Admin Password problem.

Has anyone had a similar problem or knows the ANSWER to it.

Is this Just a shortcoming foul up without a solution??????

I believe it is possible to get a Password reset program..but if there is no password then what is there to reset???

Good Morning and thanks for looking at my post. A while back i wanted to keep my SO out of my info while still letting her use the laptop, so i decided in all my wisdom , to create two users, making myself the administrator. It was very late and i was a bit distracted and i have never been able to remember my password since. This was about 6 months ago. I can still access the computer through her account but obviously can not do, change, or update anything. It is an older HP Pavilion Entertainment Notebook PC that is over 5yo. Other than the problem mentioned it runs perfect for such an antique and i don't need much capability as unfortunately I only know enough to use computers for the most basic of tasks. Is there anything i can do. If I left out any important details please let me know so I can fill in the gaps. A local "EXPERT" recommended that before i pay him $250-$350 to attempt to fix it that i could try a simple fix by removing the battery for a few hours...I tried...didn't work. Any help at all would be appreciated as i have no idea what do do next. Thank YouPR

Hello
I recently changed the password of my admin account on my computer but when I then tried to log in with the new password it didn't work, i even tried my old and it didn't work either. I also have a guest account which i can access without any password. Is there any way to solve this problem from the guest account, without having to reinstall the whole windows?

By the way, I don't have admin privileges on the guest account and I'm running Windows 7 x32 if someone wonders.

Thx in advance

Since you don't have admin rights on the guest account, you won't be able to reset the admin password. I'm not sure if they are kosher with forum rules to post, but there are plenty of free, easy to use password reset utilities out there.

My friend is unable to access his Win7, 64 bit, operating system as administrator, as the person who set it up did not tell him the password and that person is no longer available to ask. So my friend has asked me for help. I need to access Admin to correct a profile problem that prevents access to his system.

I have searched the net & have come up with a suggested solution at the below link;

I am using a Win 7, 64 bit installation disk, in repair mode, to attempt the reset of the password. The 1st window (system recovery options) tells me that the local disk is ?D? so I use that at the command prompt (2nd window). I attempt the command lines shown in the 3rd window as follows;

I get the message ?The system cannot find the file specified?

Do you have any ideas why this is so?

There also appears to be a Ubuntu fix for this Win 7 problem (at the below link), although I stumbled when it asked me for the gdebi installer for the chntpw file, so I haven't pursued that approach further.
