No matter what I tried I can't get past power-on password. Can I get help please. I tried boot disk, usb, everything. Starting up it says what ever key I hit like startup, boot, but immediately goes to power-on password. Help

> I can't get past power-on password.

 

This is an anti-theft provision.

 

Is it your computer, or are you in possession of a stolen computer? 

Did some disreputable person sell that computer to you?

Somebody who has had physical access to the computer has set that password.

 

On some HP computers, if you enter an incorrect password three consecutive times, a "code" will be shown.

Some contributors on this forum can use that code to provide the "god-password", to unlock your computer.
