Has the location of this utility changed? I'm having the same issue and need to update the serial number on Z400 with replacement motherboard. BIOS allows me to change the number, but the internal number (Reported by HP Advisor or auto-detect) is still not maching my serial number stickers on the machine.

"Hello, as per the usual case, I have a BIOS password that needs to be reset. I do believe that my 16 year old put one on there so that I cannot see what he has been doing. I would like to get this reset if possible.
HP Mini 1000
After 3 attempts of password, I get this number removed for privacy which I just realized that was the serial number. If I could get some assistance on this, I would be very thankful."

Change Serial Number In Bios Hp Elitebookl

[root USE406RK54 ]# dmidecode -s system-serial-number
# SMBIOS implementations newer than version 2.7 are not
# fully supported by this version of dmidecode.
[root USE406RK54 ]#

The interesting part of this is that you DO get the serial number, however you also get a bunch of text that basically screws up any string scripts that you might be using. Another way to get this information as the serial number only is the following:

dmidecode released with CentOS (or RHEL) 6.4 and earlier is version 2.11 which does not support the 2.8 version of SMBIOS. So you'll not *quite* get the answer you want when using the "dmidecode -s system-serial-number" version of this string. You need dmidecode version 2.12 or later to get the latest ROM BIOS reads from HP Gen8 Gear.

If dmidecode is replying with junk, then your system serial number is junk. I believe you need to go into the BIOS/UEFI and change it. Look on the case of your machine and get its true serial number, then reboot, go into your BIOS, and modify it.

In the meantime, you can also find the system serial number at /sys/devices/virtual/dmi/id/product_serial. ...Requires root to read, but many of the files in /sys/devices/virtual/dmi/id/ are readable by any user.

Some times there is the need to reset bios password, in order to be able to enter the BIOS and modifying its settings (e.g. to change the boot order). This BIOS Reset procedure on a desktop computer is a relatively easy process, because in most cases all you need to do is to remove the power cord and the CMOS/BIOS battery for a few minutes or to short the CLEAR CMOS jumper on the motherboard (if exists).

I want thank you all so much as I already solved remove my BIOS password of HP 6460b model laptop with using application HPBR utility (method 4 ). It's easy and quick method. Consequently my product model, serial number became removed as well.
Previously I cannot access my BIOS as I forgot my password. Tks a lot friends.
I want to donate for this but still trying to open the paypal, hopefully soon send my donation.

Hi, My HP laptop is suddenly showing message asking to enter administrator password or power on password. My serial is coming as i 59788608 after giving 3 wrong password. The code from the link it not working. I changed my motherboard few months back. Is that causing the problem and can you kindly help on it

My company provided laptop for me HP 9480M. It was locked under company. I decided remove all encryption. CMOS clear and battery remove does not works. I contacted to HP Technical developer team. They provided master password based on serial number. of my laptop. It help me reset password and reset TPM module. So now i have clean HP laptop without any password.

Hi, bought my laptop 2nd hand, it's a HP elitebook 840 g4. Guy I got it from has no idea what the bios password is and I've tried disconnecting the cmos battery. Do you think it's possible to reset it or change it/find it out? I called HP and they said all they can do is provide me with a part # for a new motherboard.

Open the Linux terminal console by entering Ctrl+Alt+T. When you've opened a window, enter sudo dmidecode -s system-serial-number to return your HP laptop's serial number.

Using your laptop's serial number, you can look up your model on the HP support website. Also, when you search for your HP laptop's serial number with one of the above methods, you'll find the product or model number nearby.

It's possible to locate the serial number of a stolen HP laptop if you registered it with a tracking app or with one of HP's tracking and recovery services. Another place to look is the product receipt and original packaging. If you enabled Find My Device on Windows 10, you might be able to track your device and lock it remotely.
