HP Pavillion dv9812us: How do I reset the Bios Password?

I have an HP Pavillion dv9000 (dv9812us) that's started mysteriously asking for a bios password.

I've already been to the HP support site and the only solution they give for this problem is to take the laptop to a certified repair center.

I remember encountering this problem before a couple years ago, and vaugely remember that there was a glitch in some of the HP laptops that caused them to start asking for a bios password even if one had never been set. I found a solution that involed bridging a jumper on the underside of the motherboard with an unbent paperclip, then flashing the bios so it wouldn't happen again. It worked, but I can no longer find the instructions on how to do this.

If anyone knows how to reset the bios password on this laptop I'd greatly appreciate some help!

    We can't help you here, as we don't know if you are the Original owner of the laptop or not, so Tom's policy is to not help with passwords in anyways.
