Sorry but there is no password generator for HEX codes.

 

I have read that removing the BIOS/RTC battery has worked.

 

If not.

 

Contact HP and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.

When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.

Please read my other post above.

 

Look at page 40 in your manual to remove the BIOS/RTC battery.
