Answers :

I believe you are talking about when the laptop boots to a black screen and it needs a password.

Outside of hacking software to boot from command line, there is one other thing you can get done.

All passwords require usually a cmos battery to be maintained. Even on a laptop. Have a qualified electronics technician jumper the laptop to drain all power from the battery and even in the cmos battery or any other one.

What this will do is actually wipe out the cmos information.

To be on the safe side, contact HP and ask them if they can create the BIOS boot disks on floppy. Also, see if you can get the recovery disks as well.

Then, in case that the BIOS is wiped from the system you will first load the BIOS boot disks on floppy into the laptop, then you will install the recovery disks for the laptop. The total cost will be maybe about 60 dollars, but it is the easiest method.
You'll have to reset everything in the BIOS configuration. You could check on youtube for possible support on how to open a dv1000.. remember this may void your warranty
  1. Open the computer's case
  2. \015\012
  3. Find the battery on the motherboard
  4. \015\012
  5. Remove the battery
  6. \015\012
  7. Wait a minute or so (to make sure that the m-board's compnents have powered down)
  8. \015\012
  9. Reinstall battery
  10. \015\012
  11. Close case
  12. \015\012
  13. Start the computer
  14. \015\012
  15. Go into the BIOS settings program
  16. \015\012
  17. Set up the BIOS
Some motherboards have a jumper on the board - a jumper which, when shorted will erase the BIOS settings
