Re: Reset bios password for HP EliteBook 8760W

As you might surmise, security is a large issue for mobile products and any easy way to bypass a BIOS admininstrator password is counterproductive and can lead to larger problems. I would encourage you to open a support case with HP and inquire about how to obtain a tool to reset YOUR specific unit

Re: Reset bios password for HP EliteBook 8760W

Hi,

 

I also have problem with the BIOS password on my EliteBook 8760w. I want to boot a Windows 8.1 from USB or DVD drive, but in the BIOS the USB and Optical Drive booting options are unticked, and I can't change them if I don't access as a BIOS administrator. How can I change the password or even better question, where was the password being provided to me (I'm a first customer).

 

Thank you in anticipation.

Gremi.

 

There are no master password generators for ProBooks or EliteBooks and most business class laptops.

 

You will need to contact HP.

 

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0003

 

Or look at this link.

Or replace the BIOS chip.

Sorry there is nothing else we can do.
