HP Buisines Notebook Lost BIOS Password
Posted on 2008-07-02
We have serveral different modles of the newer HP Business Notebooks (6515b, 6910p, 2510p). Our previous IT department was let go and didn't passdown the BIOS passwords or old users applied one and now have forgotten it. The newer HP notebooks have an embedded security chip preventing the removal of BIOS password through the old tricks such as;
1) Pulled the CMOS battery; left the laptop off with no power or battery overnight.
2) Tried to flash the BIOS to a new version.
3) Tried to edit the CMOS through a HEX editor
4) Various BIOS crackers
5) Pulling out the hard drive to force a boot to CD-ROM
Now; here's the real challenge. The computer that we can't recover the BIOS password for have disabled the USB's AND CDROM. Anyone have any suggestions. It just seems like it can't be done.
