Generally, there are two ways to reset forgotten 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.
HP Elitebook based on UEFI Bios provides a tool to reset BIOS password specially - HP SpareKey.

If the computer you are servicing has an unknown user password, follow these steps to clear the
password:
NOTE: These steps also clear CMOS.
1. Shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the computer is off or in Hibernation, turn the
computer on, and then shut it down through the operating system.
2. Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer.
3. Disconnect the power from the computer by first unplugging the power cord from the AC outlet and
then unplugging the AC adapter from the computer.
4. Remove the battery (see Battery on page 44).
5. Remove the real-time clock (RTC) battery (see RTC battery on page 66).
6. Wait approximately 5 minutes.
7. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer.
8. Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any batteries at this time.
9. Turn on the computer.
All passwords and all CMOS settings have been cleared.

Please discharge the CMOS battery by inserting a small bondpaper or any paper between the board and the cmos battery.

SOURCE: Hi, i have a HP

Generally you would have to get onto the motherboard to do this...you would have to take your laptop apart to expose the motherboard. Some motherboards have a Jumper that you can set to reset the bios (and thus clear the password) You can also try removing the CMOS Battery....leave it out for a minute or two so any residual power dissipates, and replace the CMOS Battery, this could possibly clear the password on the bios chip.

Otherwise there may be some Boot CD utilities like UBCD or Hiren's Boot CD etc, that may have a BIOS reset utility.
