    Please help I have HP EliteBook 9740 Windows 10 (1803). The BIOS is password protected by someone not me and I don't know the password. This is not a company machine. Is there a workaround to access the BIOS besides removing the CMOS battery which I am leary about doing. Would like to access it to see if Bluetooth is enabled at BIOS level. Bluetooth shows in services. MSc but not in device manager. So I have no functioning Bluetooth. And to put my own password in. Hope this is not considered 2 questions. Thanks.

    As already stated in post #2, we do not provide help here with a password-protected computer because we have no way to verify ownership or intent for wanting to access it.
