\015 I have my deceased cousins hp laptop and it keeps asking for a password\015

Answers :

OK, you have a bios password on that system.....doesn't matter what OS at this point and there is no back door secret way to get through. We are going to try and reset the CMOS, this will hopefully drop the BIOS password. First off power down and remove the main battery. Now push the power button for 10 seconds to discharge all the capacitors on tha mainboard. Now, put the laptop on its lid so you can work on the bottom access door of the case.This problem is listed uner an HP DV6000 series notebook so I'm guessing that is what we are working on. You can tell for sure by reading the label on the bottom of the case, wher is says HP model number. Anyway, if it is different send another note and we'll correct the procedure because all laptops are different in how they are constructed.

\015\012Now for the procedure....we are going to remove the RTC battery from the motherboard and leave it off the mainboard for about 15 minutes and then re-install it. Now with your laptop onits back, look for the access door that is in tha middle of the case. It is wide and has two screws holding it in place. When you loosen the scres they should stay on the door and once loose, pry the door off gently. Inside this compartment you will see the memory modules, the wireless card with two to three antennae leads and over to the side a small circular battery wrapped in plastic with a two wire plug on the end. pul this plug off the socket and leave it off. Once the time has expired, plug the RTC battery back onto its socket and put the access cover back on. Now leave the main battery out of the laptop and just hook up the ac adapter. Power the laptop up just with AC power. You may still see the text box for a password come up but just hit enter and see if it lets you in. If it does, go to the BIOS screen and reset the date and time and change the bios password to something you know and will remember. Once that is done, power off and reseat the battery....then reboot.
