Question about HP EliteBook 6930p Notebook PC
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.

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.
