HP NX9005 BIOS PASSWORD

2 posts in this topic

I heard you cannot clear the bios password thru the cmos battery. But, you need a tool for it. Does anyone know where I can get this tool to clear my bios password for my old HP nx9005?

Password Removal Policy

If the user forgets the system password, the user calls Technical Support to determine the proper

removal procedure The user must provide proof of ownership and the notebook must be operated

during the procedure.

The password removal procedure is protected as HP Company Private information There are a restricted

number of locations that can perform password removal It might not be disclosed or distributed outside

those locations.

Password removal is strictly controlled Hewlett-Packard and authorized support providers must ensure

with written evidence that the notebook being “cleansed” is actually in the possession of the notebook’s

actual and current owner This requires a sales receipt showing the notebook serial number and owner’s

name, or a written statement from the owner attesting that he or she is the owner of the notebook. The

statement can be a fax copy of the document The fact that the notebook is in the hands of an HP

representative on behalf of the customer is not evidence of ownership In addition, HP will not remove

the password of a notebook for any non-owner, even if it is requested by law enforcement agencies If

you receive such a request, you should notify management and HP Corporate Legal immediately.

(These requests might require a court order prior to our participation).

Further, the entity removing the password must log the name, serial number and date of the removal,

and file the written backup with the log The log and backup are subject to standard record retention process

and review.

The final issue relating to removal of passwords is that HP cannot provide information to users

that would assist them in improperly removing a password and opening a notebook
