HP Laptop "enter administrator password or power on password" problem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

AS stated in the title i have an HP laptop but when i turn it on it says to enter administrator password or power on password and i dont know what the password is, I read that resetting the CMOS battery would help but i did exactly that and it still gives me that screen if you need any more detail feel free to ask, thanks.

Sounds like a bios password, I had one on a dell laptop not too long ago, if resetting the CMOS didn't fix it... likely a BIOS reset password software for that... I'll see if i can dig out what i used

Kinda need more details like what laptop it is and why you don't have the password...

 

Typically on well protected machines bypassing BIOS password requires reflashing the BIOS chip externally, but there can be simpler procedures on some models.

The laptop model is a HP 15-bw011dx and from what i understand the password for this comes with it once you buy it new and this is my brothers laptop and he doesnt have it anymore so i dont know what the password could be sorry for taking so long to respond btw
