Contact HP, and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at bootup to reset the password.
When talking to the HP rep, ask them to escalate your service request.
In the USA/Canada, you can call this toll free number for assistance. 1-800-334-5144
Have the serial number of the notebook handy to give to the customer services rep.

Cant do that either because whoever put the password has also disabled the boot device in bios also...so right now the boot device is only saying laptop harddrive and i cant change that either unless i can get into the bios...
