If the BIOS password is set, you'll need to return the device to HP/Compaq to get that reset. Only other option I can think of would be to whip the hard disk out and see if it'll boot from a CD at that point. If that is the case, you could theoretically put the drive in another PC, wipe it completely and then reinstall it. The machine will try to boot from HDD, fail and then boot from CD next.
