Question about HP dv7-1270us PC Notebook
First shot would be to try booting in safe mode - there may not be the admin account listed in safe mode, or if there is, you might be able to enter it and change or remove the password for it.

Testimonial: "See, right now I cannot boot into any mode. That is the major problem I have not posted yet. This is going to be a series of questions before I get to that. (Start up Repair cannot fix) What is the CMOS battery? Is that the battery on the back of the laptop?"

Nope, if you do not have the bios password, the only way to reset it is by accessing the motherboard, removing case and keyboard, and either removing Cmos coin shaped battery for one second, or bridgeing the Cmos reset jumper (that interrupts contact to battery, same as removing battery).

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
B. By Using Software:
I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Generally, there are two ways to reset forgotten HP BIOS password.
One is forcing BIOS/CMOS to reset itself to its stored defaults by
removing all power to it. The other is to use a program to either locate
or identify the password and reveal it to you or erasing the password entirely.
At this moment, HP Elitebook based on UEFI Bios provides a tool to reset BIOS password specially - HP SpareKey.
