TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread

by OH Smeg In reply to how to crack crack bios p ...

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

Go to a HP Authorized Service Center and get them to fix the mistake you have made here.

Don't be daft!

by kevaburg In reply to TR members do not assist ...

The BIOS password exists as only a first line of security to a system. In my experience the best use of the password itself is to protect the BIOS from unauthorised changes. This will stop people from booting from a CD/DVD and recovering data via third-party software. However, as you no-doubt are aware, in order to remove the password to make your changes in the first place, you need to understand the concept of how to jump the CMOS (or at least remove its power source) in order to resort back to its default settings.

If your concern is the obtaining of information through theft or the previous owner re-selling a computer without removing personal or professional information, then we are talking about something completely different. But in that event, other security measures should have been in place to prevent that data falling into the wrong hands inthe first place such as encryption or passwords either at the logon accounts or the file level.

I'm afraid your answer to me looks very much like an attempt to pass the buck onto someone else to resolve. I can't see how a simple phonecall to a helpdesk can verify ownership of an item of equipment.

And besides, how is asking a member of TechRepublic for the answer so different to obtaining the user handbook and reading the answer for yourself?

And one more thing: Questions about recovering document-protected passwords have been handled on TR, and answered! Maybe you are someone working for the vendor in question and are looking to create extra revenue for them in times of financial hardship?

Not entirely correct

by The Scummy One In reply to Don't be daft!

there are several types of BIOS passwords, there are the cmos PW to protect the cmos, the boot PW to keep the system from booting, and even on newer systems a HDD password wich will destroy the data on the HDD and trash the drive.
In this case, the nc6220 PW reset requires a code from HP. Now why would HP go through this kind of trouble if it was not for security of the data on the notebook? Is it because notebooks have been a high target for theft, and data seems to be a large goal behind the thefts?
Why are HDD manufacturers designing HDD's to self destruct if the HDD password is set, and it is tampered with?
I think you are deluding yourself into believing that this is not real security, however, I think the majority here would disagree with you

Easy to do

by The Scummy One In reply to how to crack crack bios p ...

the 6220 requires that you give HP Support a call. Give them the model/serial # and they will give you a special code.

Alternatives -- since you have bad memory, try hypnosis.

Try some memory tea

Try banging your head against a brick wall until memory comes back.

Try using a hammer and whack yourself in the head a few dozen times.

Try driving into a tree at 60mph without a seatbelt.
