You need to reset the BIOS, which is sorta like a manager for the computer. Some pretty basic settings may get trashed -- like whether it automatically comes back on after a power failure, hard-coded power management things, that sort of stuff -- but it should be fine.
Directions are available on Page 30 of this document:
See that part where it tells you to look on Page 54 for removing a Real Time Clock battery? There is a -lot- of disassembly involved in this. Read through all the relevant instructions. You'll probably want to print pages 30 to 55 of the PDF for everything you need to take apart ... which is just about everything between pages 30 and 55. If you're not comfortable doing that, you may wish to hire someone -- it may be cheaper to find a local guy than a mail order company, which seem to prey on panicky business people and charge exorbitant rates. Shop around and get quotes.

Check with HP if they have what is called a TPM - trusted platform module. This is a chip that is coming by default on Sony's and a few others. If by chance this is what he applied a password to, Sony will tell you that you have just purchased a very expensive paper weight. The chip must be replaced. This is a last resort of course.
There are many sites that offer "Back Door" passwords which are default for the manufacturers while in production. But sometimes you can get lucky & get one on line.
Another way is to remove the cmos battery for 1/2 at least. This should reset the bios,which then if works go straight to the bios and create a new bios password or none at all.
Some people I know have gotten their pc's to boot with boot software. This is worth checking into. Just remember, it's all about security now with identy theft ect..... So it may not be easy or at worst --- possible.

SOURCE: removing power on password
When you restart your PC, before it boots to windows on the HP logo , tap the F10 key to enter set up, Go to security option and disable to power on option. next time when u restart it would not ask you for a power on password.
