Reset BIOS admin password

Probook 430 G2
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I bought a laptop at a sale of a bankrupt company. Administrators were fired long before the sale. After purchase, it turned out that the BIOS administrator is locked with a password.

How can I unlock my laptop?

Removing the BIOS battery did not help.
