Basically -- no.  We have no way of doing this and HP does not do BIOS password resets because the password is encrypted into the firmware of the chip on the PC and that is not replaceable.

 

If you are not prepared to spend the money to get HP to replace the motherboard, you would have to take the PC to a local repair facility to see if they can do it for you -- but we can not assist in that in any way.
