Hi:

 

Here is how to clear the BIOS P/W:

 

See the troubleshooting guide at the link below, Appendix B, page 62.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01363877

 

If that does not clear the BIOS P/W, then someone also set the stringent security option in the BIOS which prevents removing the password jumper from clearing the password.

 

In that event, the motherboard will have to be replaced.
