Having problems with your HP MINI 2133 NOTEBOOK PC - 1.2GHZ PC Desktop ?

Did not put password in at setup but is asking for it at startup

Answers :

You'll have to contact an authorized HP repair center. If you're the original owner or the registered owner or you can provide proof you purchased the laptop they should remove the password for free.

Just make sure you stick to your story that the password just appeared. Many times this happens with certain bios revisions that have a small bug.

Hope this helps.
