    Question Hack a tc4200 Bios Password?

    Hi, I just bought an HP Tc4200 from craigslist for $1200. Unfortunately, she never remembered the password she put on the bios (I wanted to set it to boot from the external dvd - IO Magic) so I can reformat the drive. I'm pretty sure she took the money and ran, so does anyone know how I can get access to the bios without the password? \
    Thanks,

    Also, I did ask my brother to literally tear apart the machine to get to the RTC battery (which HP's online support recommended I do) and leave it out for about 15min. Slapped it all back together (luckily no extra screws) and it still had the lousy password.

    If you didn't remove the regular battery as well you should try that as well as attempting to leave both batteries out overnight. This has worked for me in the past.
