I have a HP Compaq nx9010 which has a power on password set.
I origanally knew this password but wanted to remove the need to enter a password at bootup.
I typed in the original power on password and then went into security setting and then entered the old password and then left the new password and confirmation password blank which I though would remove the need to enter a password at bootup.
When I have restarted the laptop I was prompted to enter a password. If I leave it blank it says incorrect password and if I enter the old password it says incorrect password.
I have been in contact with HP and they say removing the bios battery will remove the password but it does not.
Is there anyway of removing this password without having to send it off to HP
Thanks in advance
