How to Reset BIOS Password on HP ProBook and EliteBook Laptops
If you have forgotten or lost your BIOS password on your HP ProBook or EliteBook laptop, you may not be able to access your system settings or boot from other devices. This can be a serious problem if you need to troubleshoot or reinstall your operating system.
Fortunately, there are some ways to reset your BIOS password without having to replace your system board or contact HP support. In this article, we will show you how to use a utility called HPBR (HP BIOS Password Reset) to remove the BIOS password on your HP laptop.
What is HPBR
HPBR is a utility created by a user named Mazzif on the HP Support Community forum. It is designed to reset the BIOS password on HP Business Notebook, Desktop, and Workstation PCs. It works by creating a bootable USB flash drive or hard disk drive that contains a customized SMC.bin file that can override the BIOS password.
The utility is not endorsed by HP, and it may not work on all models or BIOS versions. Use it at your own risk and make sure you back up your data before attempting to reset your BIOS password.
How to use HPBR
To use HPBR, you will need a USB flash drive or hard disk drive with at least 4 GB of free space, another computer that can access the internet and run the utility, and your locked HP laptop.
Follow these steps to use HPBR:
Download the HPBR files from this link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zu4kdgxm052l87d/AAAMi-kfX4AVH8oTCbsOM4X9adl=0
Extract the ZIP file and run the USB Image Tool.exe program.
Insert your USB flash drive or hard disk drive into the computer and select it from the list.
Click on RESTORE and browse to the HPBR.img file that you extracted from the ZIP file.
Wait for the process to complete and then remove your USB flash drive or hard disk drive.
Insert your USB flash drive or hard disk drive into your locked HP laptop and boot from it. You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS settings or press a key (such as F9) during startup to access the boot menu.
If you have an HDD installed in your laptop, remove it before booting from the USB flash drive or hard disk drive.
At the C:\\\\OUTPUT prompt, type CD.. and press Enter.
Type HPBR and press Enter.
Select #3 re-program and press S to save your system information.
Type HPBR and press Enter again.
Select FIRST RUN and then select your model from the list.
The utility will attempt to reset your BIOS password and reboot your laptop.
After rebooting, repeat steps 6 to 12 but this time select SECOND RUN instead of FIRST RUN.
The utility will confirm that your BIOS password has been removed and reboot your laptop again.
You should now be able to access your BIOS settings without entering a password.
