Just as future referrence I work on HP laptops, and I use Unlock6. Here are a couple things you might want to know. 1. It is used primarily on computers whose Serial Numbers start with 2CE or 2CD. 2. It should be run on a separate computer and it should be in the root directory. For example, let's say I have it on a jumpdrive in a certain folder. I would have to move it out of that folder and put it on the main part of the drive in my case F: then you simply run it and voila! BIOS passwords. Just thought I would post this. :)

I would be interested in some help with unlock6.exe too. I'm working on an HP DV4000 with the same problem. If someone has a copy to send to me, or if it would be easier to run the override password of 05260 on your own computer and reply with the unlock password, that would be gravy. Thanks

Believe me folks, I have tried all the BIOS reset there is, the jumpers do not reset the system. Taking the batteries out and whatnot does not work either. Only the unlock6.exe program will work. If anyone has it and could send it to me, or the number to unlock 05650 it would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried the default passwords?

If they don't work, there should be a jumper located inside the computer to reset the BIOS.

Hey,
Like everyone else, I'd like a copy of unlock6. If you wouldn't mind blasting it to bdj@unrealdestination.com
That'd be most appreciated.

1. Unplug laptop
2. Remove Battery (while powered on)
3. Remove or short out CMOS Battery
4. Check for large CMOS capacitors that act as batteries and short those out too


but, if that was a laptop like an IBM thinkpad, you're totally screwed, there is no way to reset some laptop BIOS passwords, especially hard drive passwords

Here is what the manual says!!!

Maintenance and Service
Guide
HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook PC
Compaq Presario V4000 Notebook PC

Resetting the Computer
If the computer you are servicing has an unknown password,
follow these steps to set a new password. These steps also
clear CMOS:
1. Enter an incorrect password and press enter.
2. Repeat step 1 two more times.
After the third entry of the incorrect password, the computer
responds with a “System Disabled” message and provides an
override password.
3. On another computer running Windows XP, download the
unlock6.exe utility from the HP Channel Services Network
(CSN) Web site at http://www.hp.com/partners/csn. Copy the
unlock6.exe utility into the root directory (C:\ drive).
4. Access MS-DOS by clicking Start > All Programs >
Accessories > Command Prompt.
5. Enter unlock6 xxxxx 0, where “xxxxx” is the password
generated by the computer in step 2.
The computer responds with another system-generated
password.
6. Enter the password generated in step 5 on the disabled
computer to enter the system BIOS. In the BIOS, navigate
to the Security tab and Administrator Password. Enter the
password generated in step 5 as the current password. Enter
a new password to change it.
7. The password has been reset and all CMOS settings have

There is no talk about Battery ]( forget the bios battery!!)or swich!!! ONLY UNLOCk6:EXE

When I type incorrect password 3 times, my pavillion ze4209 turns itself off. It does not give me “System Disabled” message or provide an override password. Maintenance and Service Guide for pavillion ze4209 just tells me to call HP support and prove ownership, which because it is out of warrenty they want 300.00 to fix. HP online chat tech told me to remove cmos battery, but it looks like a lot of work to get to it. Not sure if he is guessing on that solution or not (just to wrap up our chat session) , because from what I have been reading, on newer laptops the password is stored on eeprom chip and it does not rely on battery for power. Anyone know for sure if removing cmos battery will clear password on this model "HP Pavillion ZE4209 Notebook" ?

I have to do these from time to time and I usually try cracking the PW first if its a laptop just because they can be such a pain to take apart and put back together.
I use a different boot disk but the same utilities are on it as on this one.

BIOS 1.35.0
WipeCMOS 1.2
CMOSPWD 4.8
!BIOS
