I found this: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/enter-administrator-password-HP-compaq-cq40/td-p/4595428

it looks like you can try one of these two passwords: 47498324  or 00586459

according to an HP employee:

1. Use the unlock code posted above to enter the BIOS

2. Disable all passwords that are enabled

3. If asked for current password - type the unlock code

4. For new password, just press ENTER key

5. Repeat the same for verify password column.

6. Then leave the BIOS by saving & exit option to save the changes.
