This is why I generally advise folks AGAINST buying used laptops -- because the BIOS password is encrypted into the firmware of the system board and the consumer can NOT change it.  In addition, HP does not reset BIOS passwords -- so even they will not do it for you.


HP's policy is to replace the system board of the laptop with another one that does NOT have BIOS password -- and this can be very expensive such that for older laptops, it is often cheaper to simply replace the laptop.


If you can return it for a refund, I would advise you to do that.
