I never noticed that there was a BIOS setup password implanted in my HP desktop pc until I tried to enter BIOS to configure an old hard disk.
To remove the password I tried the old trick of removing the CMOS battery cell but that didn’t help, computer lost it time and date but the BIOS password remained there.
However I was able to remove the password by removing the jumper from small pins present near the CMOS cell.
I am not sure if this is a HP specific thing or do the other manufacturer’s also make use of such jumpers
