6530b factory reset/bios admin password

Q: 6530b factory reset/bios admin password

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...

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
Are you talking about the BIOS password or the Operating system password.
If its BIOS password we would suggest you contact Delltechcenter on facebook or @Dellcarespro on twitter or you can call tech support .Also have the proof of purchase for the system .
If it is the Operating system password you can reinstall operating system .
Kindly private message the service tag and email address.
Thanks

A:BIOS Admin Password Reset

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

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.

Hi Yet again, Windows is frustratingly taking up all of my time and I have tried everything google has to offer to try and fix it but it seems like no one has screwed up as much as I have on whatever forum. Let me explain the problem: I'm trying to set my account to administrator because I can't install programs, change account settings, make any changes through CMD without getting the system error 5 access denied message and I can't set the administrator account through CMD either. I also don't have the permission to change anything in regedit and I can't even reset my pc because it requires an administrator password which I don't have, is not "nothing" nor is it administrator or admin or password and I can't change it through cmd either. I can't even access the administrator account because it is disabled and even with an elevated cmd I can't activate the "hidden" administrator account. I've ran malwarebytes and superantispyware and I am now looking for the Gandalf of all Geeks to help me solve this problem. I'd immensely appreciate it!

The firm in which I work has a Lenovo PC with Windows 10 installed. There are two user profiles on the computer, the admin and another normal account without administration rights. We have only the password of the account without administrator rights.

The network administrator had left the company surprisingly in without giving the administrator password of the PC and we cannot contact him anymore.

Now we want to install another programme and we cannot do this without an administrator account.

I disabled secure boot and have tried to boot the PC with an Linux USB Stick, but it do not boot from the stick.

Any suggestion how I either can reset the password of the administrator account or create an new account with administrator rights.

Although there may be techniques to recover a lost password it is forum policy that we do not discuss these here - your best bet would be to visit a local security specialist and get them to recover/reset it for you - and a change to the policy for the replacement admin may be a good idea, I always wrote a list of all passwords and stored it with the Managing Director and also in a fireproof safe

Afternoon,

Having recently (today) inherited my company's IT support role (Without any real training / qualifications ) I'm coming across a number of small issues, one of which is the following:

All machines at my company are independently managed by their own (local) Administrator account, across the board the Username and Pass to access the Admin account is the same... except for a single machine.

It seems this machine has a differing password to the other machines, unfortunately the previous administrator is no longer contactable, I however require access to the administrator account. To the best of my knowledge he didn't set-up a Password Reset Disk either.

I've read about various 3rd party tools which can enable the resetting of the Administrator Password but am loathe to try them without first hand confirmation of their validity etc (On my head be it and so forth)

Is there any method to determine what the Admin pass may be, or should I plump for a 3rd party tool to aid in the resetting of the pass? If so, does anyone have any suggestions for which to use?

If it makes any difference, the machines are networked to a Mac Xserve server - though as I understand it, I wont be able to access locally stored passwords through the server itself?

Many thanks for any light that can be shed upon this issue

Mike

Hello,

I bought a laptop about a year ago. Shortly after buying it, we lost the password before making a backup disk. I couldn't change the password, we run Windows 7, without the old password. Luckily, or so we think, we have one of those laptops that has a fingerprint scanner so I have been able to log on using my fingerprint as a password. However, I can't believe that I am locked out of changing the passwords on this computer.

I have learned my lesson! Always back it up first! But for now, I need some help. I am also a little worried that I may have been hacked into. A friend said that if your password all of a sudden doesn't work, that is a sign of a hacker. That is what it felt like happened to me. I swear I thought I had the password right, then all of a sudden it stops working.

Thanks so much-Bill

Hello, I'm new here. Found the forums via searching for my problem. Yes, I know it's listed on the forums several times, but none of those solutions fix my problem.

All I need to do is reset the admin password on my computer. I only have a limited access account. I have tried every available program on the net. None of the linux based ones will see my hard drive, even with the correct drivers. The hash getting ones say the password is too secure to unscramble.

I do not have access to another machine, nor can I use my burner because i dont have access according to windows (limited account). So some of them I can't use because I can't make a bootable CD. However, I did get a friend to make me 3 of them, including the emergency boot disk and it crashes near the beginning with some kind of resource conflict.

Is there any other way short of formatting? I really don't want to have to do that. I also don't have any Windows XP cd's. Perhaps I can get ahold of one. I know I can install xp in another dir and logon to that install via recovery console to replace the sam file with the one from the repair dir. I just don't have access to a windows XP cd at the moment. Was hoping there was something I haven't tried yet.

Is it possible to reset my computer to factory settings without any access to the administrator part of my computer? I lost my password so the only access I have on my computer is to my guest account. If not , is there a way to reset my password without knowing my current password?

Guess it depends on what you mean by "administrator part." If you mean that you lost your BIOS password you're pretty much out of luck. But since you mention your "guest account" I'm guessing that you mean you can boot Windows. So, boot to the Recovery partition or to your Recovery DVDs or CDs to do the "recover/reset/restore to factory defaults." You can find specifics on how to do so on the PC manufacturer's web site and/or in documentation you got with it.

A few days ago, we were "told" by the computer that the password was about to expire and to create a new password. Changed the password for the only login account on the computer and now cannot log on no matter what i do. It has occurred to me that Windows and Vista do not normally require a password expiration/reset and i believe we seriously screwed up here. I cannot boot into Safe Mode either... it only shows the primary login account and of course the new (and tried the original password) will not work. I did attempt the recommendations i found here: How to show the hidden Admin account I am not able to boot into the safe mode so it did not work.i did some research online and have reset the jumpers on the MB with no changes. When in the bios/cmos settings, the Supervisor password IS accessible and NOT set up; the User password is "grayed-out" and cannot make changes to that setting. I have removed the hard drive and connected it to my main pc via a docking station for reading it as a usb drive, ran malwarebytes and found/removed several I:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\...dll files and one I:\Windows|System32\f3PSSavr.scr . Before i replace it in the original system, i wanted to know if i can possibly change the admin password some way by accessing the files on the *usb-ed* drive?

I have a few computers, and on one I could not remember the password for the life of me. I really wanted to get access to some of the files on there, so i tried removing the hard drive and adding it to this machine here as a slave drive, which also runs vista. This computer has no passwords at all enabled. And... it worked although it added the other hard drive as the C (and partitioned F drive) ! Now I have access to the hard drive and all of it's contents (after a few permission checks for some of the important files) but I really like the other computer better. It has a better graphics card, processor, etc. Is there any way I can change or delete a file so i can put the other computer back together and have it working properly with no passwords or at least a new one?

Hi there!

My Wife recently broke her laptop screen and not wanting to replace it as she wanted a new laptop, I'm selling it.

The laptop works fine under Vista, connected to my little LCD TV using the VGA out, however I want to sell the laptop factory restored and then free space 7 pass - wipe the HDD.

My problem is that if I try to restore the laptop using the HP software, which restarts the laptop to dos, I get no VGA out. I only get VGA out when Vista loads, thus preventing me seeing anything of the BIOS screens or command prompts/restore software's input fields under Restore, so basically I cannot actually use restore, and cannot access BIOS to perhaps force the VGA out if at all possible.

I feel this is a chicken and egg situation and don't have any knowledge of how to circumvent this if it is at all possible.

I would be sooooo grateful if someone knows what, if anything, can be done to force the VGA out perhaps using windows before hitting restore which would shut down the laptop and reboot with VGA output thus allowing me to see what I'm doing on the TV whilst carrying out the reset. I could always use the HP forums and tech support too I guess!

The laptop is a HP 6720s running Vista Home Basic. Sorry, but I'm not sure of the BIOS version!
Many thanks,

Stu.

Sitting here in class and our professor was telling us admin it disabled by default in Vista/W7 now for security reasons. I mentioned you can access it from a command prompt based program that comes in a bootable iso format you burn on disc.

I can not for the life of me remember what the name of that program was but a couple years ago I was working on a Win Vista system that got a virus that locked out the user by changing the user account passwords.

We Googled, found this program you burn on a CD and it brings up a menu that will allow you to reset the user account password, or log into the admin account.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Trying to find the name of it. Can't seem to find it now.

This boot disk works fine on any of my other machines.
I tried to go into the BIOS to check the settings but it is password protected. My client has cant remember what the password is. I have tried a number of default passwords with no luck.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to resetting the password on this motherboard (I cant find the jumper settings anywhere) or have any idea what might be causing the other errors. Thanks.
