I'm not familiar with your machine, but most Compaqs will lose password and reset BIOS if all power INCLUDING the RTC battery is removed for about 30 minutes. Although yours is an HP badged product, I think it will be the same. Restart on adaptor supply only, reset date/time and other set-up items, then close, reinsert batteries and all should be well.
If you don't know how to disconnect the RTC battery, you can download the Mtce & Svce guide here:
