Power On Password Pavilion ZV6000

I do work for family and friends and my mother in law dropped off her laptop.  It's a Pavilion zv6000 and it's rather old, or so it seems.  It has a power on password set and an admin password set before you can get to the login screen.

 

I tried "password" before and it worked on both of them.  I got into BIOS and then went to remove the passwords and it let me remove the administrator password using "password", but not the power on password.  After removing one, I now can't get into BIOS using "password" to remove the other password.

 

I figure that "password" is some default one, but it doesn't work on removing the PowerOn pw.  I could really use some help. 

 

Thank you.
