BIOS password reset

HP Recommended
HP Probook 450 G1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, 

I have searched Google and tried to contact HP but couldn't find the solution or get help. ANyways, I have a few HP Probook 450 G1 laptops and I've forgotten the BIOS password. I know HP has a utility to customize a SMC.bin file which Ican use at boot to reset the password but I am unable to contact HP. Is there another way to reset the BIOS password without replacing the BIOS chip?

I know those options, how do I contact HP. I go through the "contact HP" on their website after choosing my country but it keeps giving me a run around going to my laptop model it just lists "commonly asked questions" and never shows any "contact HP" options and I'm not going to pay $29.99 to call in, that price it's cheaper replace the BIOS chip.
