After loosening the four moveable tabs at the screen end you simply pull slightly to the right to loosen the left side and then up to loose the five tabs in the lower end, then flip keyboard over so keys face the screen.

  • Release the larger ribbon cable by flipping the brown retainer up so it is parallel with the ribbon cable

  • Release the smaller ribbon cable by lifting up the white retainer

There is no need at all to loosen any ribbon cables, after flipping keyboard so it faces keys against screen you can simply remove the RAM. Don't fiddle with the ribbon cables.

This did not work for me. I left the CMOS battery disconnected for a day.

You need to contact HP to get this resolved.

Τελικά μπορούμε με κάποιο τρόπο να αφαιρέσουμε κωδικό πρόσβασης BIOS για την HP EliteBook 6930p????

Αν όχι μήπως θα λειτουργούσε ένας δίσκος λειτουργικού γραμμένος από ένα άλλο HP EliteBook 6930p ώστε να μην χρειαστούμε πρόσβασης BIOS?????
