HOW TO OVERRIDE THE POWER ON PASSWORD ON A hp pavilion zd8000 laptop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i recently got a hp pavillion zd8000 laptop but right when i turn it on it say power on and to input a password that i dont know.I have tried alot of things to try and get beyond that point but no luck it does not let you do anything like go to safe mode or bios or change the boot up order nothing at all i removed the battery and nothing neither so im hoping maybe someone here can shine some light on this and knows of a way to make this go away..

Reset the BIOS, either by removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes or using a jumper. Open the laptop up and look for anything labelled "CMOS", "PWD" etc.
