Hello @ND-26 


Welcome to the HP Support Community. Thank you for posting.


There is a TKB article which you may want to read and follow >> https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebooks-Knowledge-Base/Forgotten-BIOS-or-power-on-password-HP-Commer...



Most business class notebooks (including Elitebook and Probook) have better security. Password cannot be removed here in the Community  - you will have to contact HP Business Support for assistance on removing the password.


Here is how:

HP Business support should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file and instructions which you can use  to reset the password. 


Hope this helps.  Let me know if you face any difficulties.
