Forgotten or Lost BIOS Password

HP Recommended
HP 840 G1
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit)

Thinking of our mother earth and our resources. Have an old PC that I intend to use for easier surfing etc. the computer I would use for an HP 840 G1 which was previously my work computer and which has long time since been replaced, unfortunately I have problems with BIOS Password as I do not know what it is. It would be a great shame to throw away this PC, a waste of resources, it could work for a few more years.
Can someone help me get an SMC.bin file (which I Googled) so I can unlock my BIOS.
