Welcome to the HP Support Community @bingolotto


For that model you will need to contact HP in your region and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.


Contact Support >>


When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.


Just to note:


Do not try removing the RTC/BIOS battery.  As it will not remove the password, but it may reset the clock and as SMC files are time coded, a large disparity between the system clock and the time encoded in the SMC may cause it to fail.
