SOURCE: BIOS password
one thing you can do is to disconnect the CMOS battery for about a minute or so to let the charge drain away, then re-connect it ( you could always renew it at the same time as they don't last forever ) This will reset the BIOS to default settings and a password will no longer be required. Good luck !

find your rtc and remove battery(looks like a large digital watch battery)leave it out for a couple of minutes then replace it , bios will then then be then be reset to factory.you can then enter a password(new) or leave it blank(no password)the battery is housed some where on the motherboard,sometimes on top sometimes underneath.on a evo I looked at the other day the battery was next to the ram slots so very easy to get to.without checking service manual cant tell you exactly where yours might be located.

Usually there is no password by default. There are different ways to access the BIOS (hitting delete, holing down F10 during boot) that differ between manufacturers. However, if someone mistakenly or otherwise passworded your BIOS you should be able to reset it usually by a jumper on the motherboard. (Usually close to the BIOS C-MOS IC). Sometimes marked CLR by the two pins you need to place jumper across. I would not recommend you try to alter any jumper settings on the motherboard if you have little or no experience servicing p.c.'s as you may create other problems. Check the MFG. support site ( http://www.hp.com/#Product) for help or refer it to a qualified repair center. Good Luck !
