BIOS password is a security feature that prevents unauthorized access to your laptop's settings and data. However, it can also be a hassle if you forget it and need to make changes to your BIOS settings or boot from a different device.

Extract the zip file to a folder on your computer.
Insert a USB flash drive into your computer. Make sure it has at least 1 GB of free space and you have backed up any important data on it.
Format the USB flash drive using FAT32 file system.
Use a program like Win32 Disk Imager or Rufus to write the HPBR.img file to the USB flash drive. This will make the USB flash drive bootable with the HPBR utility.
Turn off your HP laptop and insert the USB flash drive into one of its USB ports.
Turn on your HP laptop and press F9 repeatedly to enter the Boot Menu.
Select the USB flash drive as the boot device and press Enter.
You will see a black screen with some text and instructions. Follow them carefully.
You will be asked to enter your laptop's serial number. You can find it on a sticker at the bottom of your laptop or in the BIOS itself (press F1 when you see the HP logo).
After you enter your serial number, press Enter. The HPBR utility will generate a master password for your BIOS based on your serial number.
Write down the master password or take a picture of it with your phone.
Press any key to reboot your laptop.
When you see the BIOS password prompt, enter the master password that you got from the HPBR utility.
