Recommended Posts

I have a MX17-R4 and I'm trying to get master pass code for bios. I bot this new and I got it cheaper because it was out of box at that time I didn't no what that was but now I do over a year later and then some that's when I found out I needed master password for bios so I can change settings. I got a hold of HP and they said I need to pay for it now because my warranties is up I only had a year can anyone help me Thanks

You don't need to be under warranty.

You just have to prove that you are the owner of the machine.

If you provide the proof of purchase - they will generate the master unlock whatever key and that's all about it.

Did it once in the past, that's how I know.

If not, there are dudes all over the net who would unlock it for $50 or smth. Not legit, obviously.

It might be possible to reset the bios password. I know on desktop PCs there is a coin battery that you can remove to reset the BIOS. It might be true for laptops. I recommend find a copying of the maintenance guide for your model of laptop and seeing if there is a bios reset procedure.
