I'm working on a womans' HP mini laptop and the BIOS is password protected. She doesn't know the password, and I'm not able to find any information on getting it cleared or reset to factory defaults on Google. All I'm able to find are scammers directing people to websites where you have to pay them to get it done, and they don't actually do anything but scam you out of money.
All of the usual culprits like removing the CMOS battery / laptop battery / AC power don't do the trick (hurr dur HP stores the password in non-volatile memory.)
Does anyone have an HP Mini 110 and know how to reset the blasted password? I can't fix this laptop without getting into the BIOS.
