tried the link

thanks for the link and suggestion unfortunately massifs tool doesnt support the 6570b also came with the problem of having to enter the old password. i also tried to flash the bios still no luck looks like my only option is to buy a new bios chip

I find many can't solder today.

Replacing the chip would be testing the skills of the technician but it requires a full teardown of the laptop.

Some shops will reset this and HP does this for a fee. Get a quote as the BIOS replacement by folk that don't solder has resulted in dead machines about 100% of the time.
