Hi, @Gurdip_Singh

 

No HP consumer or business desktop PC generates a system disabled code.


Most of them have a clear password jumper on the motherboard that allows a user to clear the BIOS P/W.

 

See the link below under the I/O Ports and Jumpers section for your model's motherboard for how to clear the BIOS P/W.

 

https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c05066299

 

To clear the P/W, you would shut down and unplug the PC.

 

Remove the jumper from the Password header.

 

Plug in and turn on the PC.

 

The BIOS P/W should now be cleared.

 

Shut down and unplug the PC.

 

Replace the jumper from whence it came.

 

Plug in and turn on the PC.
