I replaced the hard drive in my laptop. I ordered the recovery disks from HP. I installed the hard drive, started the computer so I could put the recovery disk in the CD rom tray. I shut off the laptop and started it back up again. It is asking for a power on password. I unplugged the cmos battery for 30 seconds, that did not fix it. I called HP. AMAZINGLY they actually gave me a little info without charging me $50.00. They said the password is stored in the BIOS. Is there any way to remove this password if I do not remember it?

Removing the RTC battery for five minutes or more should clear the password from BIOS.
