Reset BIOS Password EliteBook 8540w

I have problem with buing_as_used laptop - Reset BIOS Password EliteBook 8540w - I can't reset with procedure - http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Reset-BIOS-Password-EliteBook-8540w/td-p/927153

 

It's possible to solve this problem ?

Like : "SOLUTION: This is what I did and worked like a dream. Contacted HP, told them the problem. They "escalated the case," took my info. The next day I was emailed a file called SMC.bin. It is formatted specifically for my machine, has to match the UUID. Copied file to FAT 32 formatted jump drive, booted it as per the email instructions, reset bios password"

Hi Stanislaw,

You have reached the wrong Company Forum. As it is regarding a HP Laptop so you'll have to post your question in the HP Consumer Support Forum.

Here is the link: HP Notebook Support Forum

Note: Have your Product number handy as experts there will need it to help you further.

Thanks,
