Contacting HP will do you no good because HP does not reset BIOS passwords on existing systemboards  HP will charge you a fortune to replace the system board with a new one that does not have the BIOS locked.

 

Also, the BIOS chip is soldered to the systemboard, not socketed like in a desktop -- so it is not removable.
