Unknown BIOS Password

HP Recommended
EliteBook 8460p
Ubuntu LTS

I recently purchased an EliteBook 8460p with bios F.62 from a pawn shop. It boots fine and works but I can't get into the BIOS to change any settings. I have a receipt to prove I purchased this legitimately. Is there anything short of replacing the motherboard that I'm able to do to get around this password?
