Sorry, I am afraid not. You should call HP support.

You can try pulling out the CMOS battery on the mobo to reset the bios, but it probably won't work. Had this problem a few times myself.

1. Shut the system down, remove the main battery and the AC power cable from the laptop.
2. Remove the Hard Disk Drive cover from the bottom of the laptop (2 screws).
3. Next to the Hard disk you will see the CMOS battery --- it is about the size of a penny and covered in dark tape. Two wires lead from this CMOS battery to a plug about 1.5 inches away.
4. Disconnect this plug, wait 15 minutes, and put everything back the way it was.
5. Restart the system ---all CMOS settings and BIOS passphrases will have been reset.

You can't remove the password, without knowing it !   -->  ( what good is a password that can be "repaired" ?)
modern laptops keep it in a security chip - for anti-theft reasons
resetting the bios does not help;  nor does removing the battery, since the password is not in there
you would need to know in what chip it is, and how to reset that
you have to turn it in to the manufacturer, and show proof of ownership - then they can help
or replace the mobo !
