BIOS/Startup password reset

hp notebook 240/246 g5
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I need help recovering/reseting a BIOS/startup password that has been forgotten.

I already tried to take out the battery on the motherboard and waiting for half a hour.

It did not work as upon boot up, it will show the password prompt again.

When I enter the password three times incorrectly, it will show me the following:


System Disabled

[i 69690517]


How do I disable this password prompt the gain access to the laptop.
