A: HP Probook 4540S Forget Bios Pasword

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 the code 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 2. 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.

Ok let me explain the situation. I have one main pc and one laptop. Both with win7. I originally had both of them setup in homegroup and it worked well. But today, because of my curious nature, i tried to change about some settings.

I removed myself from the homegroup. Then when i try to click on my main pc's name under network it asked for a username and password. I entered the user and password for for a certain user on the main pc (and foolishly clicked to remember forever), and now im in the network no problem. But the issue is now that i can access the personal documents of another user on that same pc! Previously when i was on homegroup i had it set up to only share the printer and i couldnt see any other docs.

When i join the homegroup now and set it up to only share printer i can still access all the other docs.

So how do i get it back to how it was? Im really stumped by this. Also windows credentials doesnt store the password either, only the homegroup one.

A:Bizarre situation.. i want windows 2 forget my pasword.

ok no worries

i fixed it by forcing windows to forget all my passwords with this command in the command prompt

net use * /d /y

pheww!

Attempted to up-date to Windows 10. Couldn't do it. Microsoft (MS) Tech tried to do it and couldn't do it. It seems there are some security tools that must be removed as they are incompatable with Windows 10. MS tried to remove and couldn't do it. He said they were on the mother board and when he tried to remove them they just kept coming back so once again he couldn't do it. He said contact HP and they could do it. Unable to find anybody at HP that can do it. As you can see nobody can do it so I guess it just cannot be done. That is unless some fine person out there has discovered a way to do it. If thats the case please tell me ho wo do it.

I have a new ProBook 4540s notebook that I shut down over the weekend. I am not sure if I put it into hibernate, sleep, or what as I am still getting use to it. When I tried to turn it on (not plugged in) I got nothing. So I plugged in the power cord and hit the power button again. All it did was the LED above the cord plug blinked about 8 times and nothing else. I let it "charge" overnight and tried again in the morning. Nothing but a blinking LED. I Googled the problem and it said to take the battery out, unplug, and hold the power button down for 20 seconds. I plugged it back in but left the battery out, and still the same thing - flashing LED. HELP! Thanks.

HiI tried to update to W10 and failed with OXC 1900200 which suggests a compatibility issue. It is unclear on the HP website if this model supports W10 -  HP has not tested your PC model for upgrade to Windows 10.If your Windows 7 or 8 PC was manufactured before August 2013 or is running Windows XP or Windows Vista, HP cannot confirm it can be upgraded to Windows 10.  Can anybody offer an advice if the 4540S supports the W10 upgrade and if so any advice on what may be causing the error. ThanksJohn

Hello! My ProBook 4540s was working fine until a half hour ago, when I unplugged it to move it and then attempted to plug it back in, and it stopped charging.  When plugging in the power cord (that came with the ProBook when I bought it around 18 months ago), the light above the power jack (and no other lights) flashes white 9 times. I've tried following this fix I found on Google: 1. Turn off the notebook2. remove the battery3. remove the charging adapter4. press + hold the power button for 40 seconds5. insert the charging adaptor only6. press the power button and it supposedly continues but I get stuck at this point, because even plugged in, my ProBook won't start up without the battery in also. Is this a know problem/is there a fix for this?

My laptop is running Windows 10 64-bit.

For the past few weeks my laptop has been turning off unexpectedly.

I've tried with battery only. With battery and power cable and with battery removed and only power cable.

I am using the machine normally and then screen just goes black and power offs - no restart, no hibernation, no shut down. Just instantaneously off.

It's not overheating. Could it be a fan issue?

I don't know - but it's getting quite irritating as I often have many apps open and many files open on each app and takes me 30 mins to get back to where I left off.

the touchpad of my 4540s i5 freezes after some time of working.this happens from time to time.i unstalled Synaptics TouchPad Driver and restalled but probles is the same.OS windows 8(64bit)

A:the touchpad of probook 4540s i5 freezes after sometime

Hello zamsam,

 

I understand that your touchpad will freeze.

 

Do a hard reset.
Turn the computer off.
Remove the power cable and the battery.
Hold down the power button for 15 sec while booth power sources are removed.

This should reset the hardware in the computer.

 

As you power it back on tap the F2 key. This will load hardware diagnostics.
Run the startup test.

This will test all the hardware in the system and detect any problems.

 

If the entire test passes, turn off the computer.
As you turn it back on tap the F10 key. This will load BIOS setup utility.
Press F9 to load defaults.
Press F10 to save and exit.

When the computer boots back up, check to see if everything is working.

 

Your computer is one of our business models.

 

Your question maybe better answered on our business forums.

 

Here is a link to the business forums.

Dear Customer,Welcome and Thank you for posting your query on HP Support Forum It looks like you are not able to Power ON the Notebook and wanted to fix the issuePlease perform below shown steps to find out if this is a software or hardware issue:1. Remove all Peripherals and Cables, Disconnect them and try to Power ON the Unit 2. Check for LED Light Status and ensure Power Button spring action is normal 3. Swap with a known good Power Cord and Power Adapter 4. Incase no Adapter is available, Check if the Power Adapter is slightly warmNote: This will give us a hint that the Power Adapter might be fine 5. Do you know if the Notebook was in Battery or Power Adapter Mode when you used it for the last timeNote: Ensure there is no liquid spillage or Power Outage 6. Check if the AC Adapter Port is loose/broken Note: If the Notebook doesn't Power ON even with a known good Power Adapter this confirms the Hardware fault with System Board or the DC Power Circuit  Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again **Click the 'Thumbs Up Button' 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,K N R KAlthough I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP

Hi,   I went to the HP sitem (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/ads/windows10/support.html) to see if my computer is compatible with the Windows 10 Upgrade (I got an authentication error the last time I tried). But the site no longer has a field to type in the model number of the computer to check for compatibility. Please hurry! I am running out of time.Thanks,Tom

A:HP ProBook 4540s (Model C9K70UT) Windows 10 Compatibility

Hi: When I enter the product number for your PC after clicking on the Upgrade Icon on the link you posted, I get this message... http://www8.hp.com/us/en/ads/windows10/not_tested.html?jumpid=cp_r163_us/en/pc_cons/win10/update/Fin... So what that means is HP does not support your notebook with drivers and software to work on W10. That doesn't mean it can't.  It just means there is a possibility that some of the hardware won't work. I looked at the specs for your notebook, and it appears that it should work on W10. I have much older HP business notebooks than the 4540s and they work on W10. I do not use any of the security software such as the fingerprint reader, so I can't say if that will work on yours or not, and mine don't have webcams. There are some W7/W8.1 drivers you may have to install such as the JMicron Card reader driver to get the card reader to work. You can always give it a shot and if it doesn't work, roll back to W7 within 30 days of the upgrade. If you need help finding a driver or so, let me know and I will see what I can do.

I have a relatively new HP Probook 4540s, running the Windows 7 x64 Edition OS, which regularly stalls for a few seconds (5-6 secs), before returning to normal operations. This is witnessed while writing documents, viewing web-pages, opening any application, and other general use items.

Appreciate anyone's help in resolving this issue. Is this an OS issue or hw/sw combination problem? Look forward to your help in clearing this annoying and in-comprehensible problem.

Thanks and best regards,
Akbar

Hi guys, im new here so i dont know if this is the right place to post this, Anyway, i have an acer aspire 8930g, and it is locked with a bios pasword. I want to remove that. I searched google, and the showed some methods but didnt help.
I opened the laptop removed the cmos battery and after 10 minutes i pluged it in and started to close the laptop, when i turned it on the pasword was there. I have tried to crack it but that didnt help to.
I cant boot, and i want to install a fresh copy of windows 8.1 pro, but since i cant boot it is useless, but thats not the only reason, i just want to remove it.
I wanted to ask will the bios pasword be removed if i change the whole battery ? I know that the data is stored in a chip, but will it work if i change the battery ?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

A:How to remove a bios pasword

A BIOS password in a laptop is a security measure. Unlike in a desktop, it is not stored in the CMOS and cannot be reset by removing the CMOS battery. If the password were easily removed it would serve no useful purpose.

All I can suggest is to contact Acer and be prepared to prove ownership.

Turn off your PC, unplug it from the wall, open up the side panel, and find the jumper marked "CLR_PSWRD" or something like that near the bottom right of the board. Swap the jumper onto pins 2 and 3 (opposite of what it is now) and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then put the jumper back to where it was and see if it works.
