    If this is a password issue, you can't. Especially the drive lock, you will need to know the password.
    HP may be able to help but you need to provide proof of ownership.

    Here is the service manual. The password removal policy is in here.

    First I would try HP w/proof of ownership as sparkmaker suggested, but in my experience the bios password on an hp laptop requires a replacement of the security chip you can have hp do or a place like this For a forgotten hard drive password get a new hdd as this one is now a paperweight. If you need to recovery data off the drive you would have to send it to a data recovery firm.
