Reset power-on password!

Hi, I have a HP Compaq dc7800 Small Form Factor PC and i'm getting that blue screen asking for the power-on password, although i did not set it. I have tried removing the CMOS battery but unfornunately that didn't work, perhaps becasue it is a business PC, which i read in a post on hear. 

What should i do?
