Unlocking 6540B BIOS password

HP Recommended
6540B

My uncle retired from a telco, they let him have his work laptop, its been about 2 months since then, and he has forgotten his password. He has asked me to unlock it but its a BIOS password and I'm not able to proceed even install Win10 via USB as that option is available but later blocked.

 

I read this thread but the url provided by @REO51ST no longer works. 

 

I tried to contact HP via their website but support in my country(Philippines) is no longer available. Bringing this to a store or a technician will be my last resort.

 

I hope someone here has another way to crack the password or an updated version of the BIOS unlocker capable of unlocking a 6540b.

 

Has anyone tried the CMOS way to get around the password?
