Most if not all, the HP DV6 laptops came with Windows 7 and if yours did, that is a problem as HP has not carried Win7 recovery media for some time now.
Also, the recover media does not reset the password; instead, it reformats the entire drive, basically erasing everything on it, recreates all the original partitions, and reinstalls Windows and HP drivers.
