How to Remove BIOS Password with HP SpareKey

If you have set up HP SpareKey on your HP computer previously, now you can remove your lost BIOS password with it.

Note: HP SpareKey is a utility that helps you, or the administrator of the computer, recover lost system passwords, such as the power-on, drive lock, or BIOS passwords. When setting up the SpareKey, you are prompted to provide answers for a sequence of three predetermined personal identification questions. HP SpareKey couldn't reset HP administrator password, so we have to think of other ways, such as Windows Password recovery to do that.

Detailed steps:

If you do not answer the questions correctly in the three attempts, you will be locked out of your computer. And then you must contact HP for assistance.

How to Remove BIOS Password on HP by Removing the CMOS Battery

The other way to remove a BIOS password is simply remove the CMOS battery. Removing the CMOS battery like the one shown in the picture causes the system to lose all CMOS settings; including the password.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 – 25 minutes before putting it back in. Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during boot up now, you will need to go to "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.
