I need password reset for HP 8460p

HP Elitebook 8460p
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a laptop as above. The laptop has a BIOS password. I tried to use the tool:

But he receives the message "This Utility will not program for this SN: CZC21 ...."

The message is in both the first and the second step. I did not try to enter the password 3 times to lock it.

Is it possible to remove the password on the BIOS?
