to reset the bios password you need to remove the RTC battery for about 2 or 3 minutes, unfortunately the RTC battery on your comp is in a hard to get at spot, here is the service manual link https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:Qnll0FDGyLMJ:h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00312379.pdf+HP+DV1000+manual&hl=en&gl=au&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjzOpN2_LzzpCtFcLAfb1GrMzBa4i-cpUBBFBw4OX8ZGupLrTjOGEt6WsFxtfHp1R29eL6L5PRZw8qlrkfJ0_A5Gu1DvHRbeDza3CZP1gj3EumC2ZGWlHkZ2IrBi31LPC6Oc23k&sig=AHIEtbRkO_TzCI2L6EuzJDQZcdvA8qh4Mw&pli=1 good luck
Power drain would be a better solution in this case. 1.first shut down the comp 2.unplug the charger 3. remove the battery and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer
Unfortunately, unless you have the skill to disassemble the laptop and solder a new DC jack onto the motherboard you may be stuck. This is a rather difficult procedure and DC jacks alone can run between 20-80 bucks each. I wish you luck
