You might try this, although it might not work on your specific model as some Elitebooks keep the password even if these steps are followed. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Display-and-Video/Reset-BIOS-Password-EliteBook-8540w/m-p/927235#M30136

SOURCE: EliteBook 8530p bios password
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.
And the most easiest and convenient method for erasing dynamic BIOS/CMOS settings is to remove battery directly from the motherboard. It applies to most motherboards besides HP Elitebook BIOS. At this moment, HP Elitebook based on UEFI Bios provides a tool to reset BIOS password specially - HP SpareKey.
How to reset BIOS password with SpareKey?
1. Before forgot BIOS password, you have set answers to three predetermined personal identification questions.
Write down the answers to these questions and put them in a safe place, away from the computer, so that you can always access them.
2. When you cannot remember the password to access the BIOS on your computer, turn on the computer and immediately press the ESC key to display the Startup Menu. And then press the F7 key.
3. HP SpareKey wizard pops up and prompts you for the answers to the three personal identification questions. If you successfully answer the questions, you are granted access and you can reset the password.
If you do not answer the questions correctly in the three attempts, you will be locked out of your computer. And then you must contact HP for assistance.
Note: HP SpareKey cannot help you recover a Windows 7 or Vista administrator account password. It is intended solely to recover system-level passwords.
