    Hey everyone, I purchased an HP Probook 4430s from a college and I need to know if someone can post a BIOS mod that removes the Lo Jack feature from the BIOS as it calls home once it connects to the internet and then becomes virtually useless unless I reinstall Windows. The college refuses to do anything to help with the laptop at all, and I'm not the first person with this problem from this college. I can solder a new bios on it but I'm trying to save some money as it is a little pricey right now. Any help is much appreciated and at this point no suggestion is a bad one seeing as this thing is a paper weight. Thanks Everyone :hug2:

    Here is a link to the BIOS: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp61001-61500/sp61104.exe

    Found some code inside the ROM labeled "Computrace V80.897"

    Read this documentation about the BIOS-Rootkit.

    I found out two modules hold some computrace code

    Code:
    7FECA262-E72B-4262-B3F2-43A308318E73.ROM
    8E4BE7B2-1FCD-4C42-B3C7-8C2C4039E111.ROM
    but that's only code which can be identified by name. No one knows if there is something else.

    I don't have a solution, but if you don't mind my asking, what is the objection to Lo Jack's "calling home" operation? As long as the laptop isn't reported as stolen, and I assume it isn't, it should not affect you or the laptop's operation. (Of course, if you want to know how to do it "just because I want to" - I'm all for that as well)! By the way, if the Lo Jack subscription expires without being renewed, it will cease to "call home". Okay, one more idea - if you can determine what port(s) Lo Jack uses, perhaps it can be blocked via a firewall rule or editing the hosts file.

    The problem is that when it calls home, I get a white screen saying to return the laptop to the college. Once it does it once, it happens every time as soon as you log in to windows. It is not stolen, it was paid for in the college tuition but they refuse to deactivate it. If you Google "everest college lojack" you'll see a lot about this happening.

    I'll have to give it a run if it acts up. I installed Windows 8 on it after I posted this thread and so far so promising(Its been over 48 hours), it hasn't locked up at all :yeahyeah:

    I did replace the hard drive when I installed but from what I have read it gets called upon from the BIOS like a rootkit and installs the agent to lock the computer down.
    Maybe Windows 8 has something to do with it not locking up :confused:

    I have also read that Linux is the "other" alternative because the Lojack phoning agent is incompatible with Linux (seeing that it is only for Mac OS and Windows).

    http://www.freakyacres.com/remove_computrace_lojack?page=1 > About 2/3's into the responses there are supposed instructions about removing LoJack. I have no idea if it credible or not, but it looks like it has potential. Seems to all center around a 44,544 byte file named agremove.exe - again, I don't know if it is true or not. If you have a reliable backup of your drive, you may want to attempt this.

    The laptop is provided as a tool to enhance academic success, of which the student’s tuition does not include or

    cover any laptop associated expenses.

    To receive a laptop the student must agree to the terms in the Student Laptop Agreement and complete an Address

    Verification form. These forms are presented to the student through the Applicant Portal when they enroll with the

    university.

    In general, new and re-entry students are eligible to receive a laptop.

    If a student stops attending the university, the laptop loaned to them must be returned to the university within 14

    days of the students last day of attendance. This is done at the university’s expense.

    Support for the university owned laptops is provided by the university’s Support Services Department located in

    Tempe, Arizona.

    Laptops that are not returned, or are lost or stolen, are made inoperable using the LoJack system. Fees may apply

    (see next item).

    If the university owned laptop is damaged, lost, or stolen, or not returned to the university in a state similar to that in

    which it was received, the student may be responsible for paying a deductible fee.

    When the student completes all graduation requirements and has no outstanding financial obligations to the

    university, ownership of the laptop is transferred to the student.

    I copied the above from an Everest PDF file. The last sentence says it all - if one has graduated and is all paid up, they should receive the laptop free and clear.

    But if you bought this computer out with your Student loans or scholarships, its yours end of story. Loaning it is one thing but if you paid for it, its yours especially if you used parts of your student loans to purchase it. The loaning institutions pay for it and in return you pay them back with ridiculous amounts of interest.

    Well, I hate to use really dirty words, but perhaps you need to get a lawyer involved? (UGH!)

    Hell no, like I said in the very first post, I can always buy a new BIOS chip (probably 99% less of the cost of a lawyer) when I get the spare cash and solder it on but i'm looking for a less expensive way, like a BIOS mod.

    This may seem like a stupid answer, and you may have looked into it allready, but could you not just go to HP and download a BISO?? o_O
