Answers :

There is software out there for free download that will remove all passwords on boot. Download and burn to cd then load on boot. Follow instructions.
I believe that hp will remove BIOS passwords from hp notebooks, so long as you can prove you are the owner (or was it "you are the original owner"). I believe they charge a fee for this, but i believe it is well under $100USD to do it.
\015\012If its just a power-on-password, dont send it to hp, search for the manual as advised above and clear the BIOS. If its a BIOS password, send it to HP (get a quote first to be sure).
\015\012
\015\012If, after clearing the power-on-password, you find you have a hard disk password as well, I would replace the drive.
\015\012
\015\012There are very few companies that remove ata hard disk passwords. The price is excessive - unless you really need the data.
