How to Set HP BIOS Password for Desktop and Notebook This passage mainly talks about how to set bios password for HP desktop and notebook. How to set BIOS password for HP desktop? Almost all HP and Compaq consumer desktop computers do not allow power-on passwords. Instead, use a BIOS Lock Supervisor password and Windows Logon password. You can help prevent someone from accessing the BIOS and making unwanted changes by setting a BIOS Supervisor password (or BIOS Lock). To do this, go to the Advanced page of the BIOS Setup Utility and select Supervisor password (or BIOS Lock) to add or change a password. The setting is usually at the bottom and you might need to scroll. To prevent the Supervisor password screen from appearing, leave all text blank and press Enter when entering a password. How to set BIOS password for HP Notebook? Some HP Notebook PCs may be unable to Enter F10 System Setup as BIOS Administrator if HP ProtectTools is Enabled. If the BIOS Administrator password is not set, and HP ProtectTools security is enabled in Security Manager, then you may not be able to enter the Computer Setup utility at startup as a BIOS administrator. You will only be allowed to enter the setup as a ProtectTools user with very limited access. To resolve this issue, create a BIOS administrator password and delete previous ProtectTools user logs by following this procedure: 1. 2. 1 Download and install the latest SSM utility (SP42536) from here.

Restart the notebook PC and press Esc then F10 at startup. Log in using the new BIOS administrator password. Choose User Management and delete any previous ProtectTools users.
