    I have loost my BIOS password. Is there a means to reset / clear or change this? 


    My UUID number is: 1FD8F25B9A32E3119D50009AE50260A5

    SKU: A115AV

    [personal information removed per Rules Of Participation]


    I have tried removing the CMOS battery, depressing the power button for 90 seconds and leaving it without power for a week resulting in no joy. I have also attempted the "generic" bios password clearing EEPROM sofware from a usb (thus from the cmd prompt) and from windows again with no luck. I have tried reinstalling win 8.1 and then running a factory reset and again this did not work. I can not change the boot order and booting from a USB is only possible, via a manual process through the options available from the menu available upon start up and pressing the "esc" key. When I do this it only works with an OS on the USB as an IOS file.


    HELP this is driving me nuts!!!! 


    Thanks in advance!

    I found a really old computer - it was a Presario C700, unfortunetly I lost the password.

    When i type the wrong password 3 times, it comes up with Key: 77105159.

    I cant remove the CMOS battery as all the screws are stripped and worn out.

    Today my envy x360 decided to quit on me. When i press the power button the light comes on along with the fan but nothing else. I get the charger light on when i plug my charger in and when the battery fully charges it goes from orange to white. While the laptop is "on" the caps lock light wont turn on or the num lock light. I have taken the ram out and even swapped it with some extras still no change. I made a usb drive with the media creation tool to try to restore windows my usb drive blinks at start up but i cant get any response with f12 or f9 i also read escape works but none of them could bring my screen up. I also tried to hook up to a monitor and it showed something was hooked up but said it was getting no signal. Is this a motherboard issue or could it be something else? Any help is greatly apprectated thank you in advance.

    I have tried several different linux distros on this machine and think i have finally settled on the ones i want to use long term. My uefi boot manager comes up with a very long list. Is there a way to delete the distros i no longer have installed? I have read this can be done from linux using efibootmgr commands, but even as root it says this file is locked. I have no idea how to unlock a file that resides in nvram? Thanks for any advice, and apologies if this is in the wrong category- it seemed closest to my issue.

    The laptop was new at the end of August 2018.

    A few days ago the HP Support Assistant providied a BIOS update which I installed.

    Since then on power up I first get the power switch light flashing, then the light on the caps lock button give 3 long and 5 short flashes which I understand says it can't find the CPU.

    Forcing a power off, waiting the n powering on again gives "The CMOS checksum is invalid." CMOS 502.

    Press enter to rest and the computer starts and runs fine.

    I assume that the BIOS updtae is invalid, or has not installed correctly (all done through HP Support assistant).

    Any advice and a fix greatly appreciated

    I have a HP Pavillion X360 2 in 1 computer

    The unit starts up and gets to boot but no OS on the M.2 drive as yet.

    But the issue is more with the power supply i think.

    It is not powering from the AC adapter nor charging. If I remove the battery it will not power up. I get a little orange light at the AC point when you first press the power button. Then it flashes white from then on


    The unit boots to the bios and then fails as no OS yet.

    I have tried 3 different AC units on the laptop. They all work on other units.

    Does anyone have any advice?

  • 12/21/18--12:24: HP ab150sa - Boot fail
  • Hello all,


    Recently, my laptop crashed without a low battery warning. 


    Since then, I am having problems with laptop boot. The laptop powers on but all I see is black light on the screen. The HP logo is also not displayed, which i guess is that the bios is failing to load.


    I tried this solution: remove power cord, remove battery, hold on power button for upto a minute, put back battery and power on. But not much luck. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it does not.


    Majority of the time, I power on my laptop, the bios fails to load. But after repeatedly powering off & on , sometimes, I get lucky and the bios and windows loads.


    This has created uncertainty that my laptop may not start at all the next time I power it on.


    Your suggestions are welcome.
