HP Compaq 6200/8200 Elite Desktop PCs - Resetting Password Security

Issue

Resetting the BIOS Password.

Solution

To disable the power-on or setup password features, or to clear the power-on or setup passwords, complete the following steps:
  1. Shut down the operating system properly, and then turn off the computer and any external devices, and disconnect the power cord from the power outlet.
  2. With the power cord disconnected, press the power button again to drain the system of any residual power.
  3. Remove the computer cover or the access panel.
  4. Locate the header and jumper.
  5. Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2. Place the jumper either on pin 1 or 2, but not both, so that it does not get lost.
  6. Replace the computer cover or the access panel.
  7. Reconnect the external equipment.
  8. Plug in the computer and turn it on. Allow the operating system to start. This clears the current passwords and disables the password features.
  9. To establish new passwords, repeat steps 1 through 4, replace the password jumper on pins 1 and 2, and then repeat steps 6 through 8. Establish the new passwords in Computer Setup.
