Thank you for reaching out to us on HP Support Forums! I see from your post that you are having issues related to Setup password. Don't worry I'll try my best to help you with this.
To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:
Have you recently made any changes on the PC before the issue started?
Is it Bios password or Windows logon password?
If this is to do with the Bios password,
Then this looks like a possible hardware failure where the PC needs a hardware service as the motherboard may require a tattoo/Bios Flash.
Any other way of unlocking the BIOS is not authorized by HP.
If this is to do with the Windows logon password then, I would like to know what type of account have you created? is it Microsoft account or Local account
Try this first: Use the HP Guided Solution:
Reset your Microsoft account password online. You can reset your password on any device connected to the Internet.
See the Microsoft password reset page (in English) to reset your password.
Use one of the following options to reset the password for your local account.
If you have created a password reset disk, use the disk to reset your password. See Reset your local user account password using a password reset disk.
If you do not have a password reset disk, you may be able to reset the password from a different administrator account. See Changing the local user account password from another user account.
If you are not able to access the account see Accessing your account when no other option is available.

Could you please respond to this post with the details as this will help me in further assisting you.
Eagerly waiting for your response!

My computer is working fine. Actually to save my computer from unauthorzed uses I have put a bio set up password so that nobody can change my power on password.But I forgot that password.
I did couple of reset but it didn't worked out.
Kindly advise if any key will help me to open the bio se tup password.

Thanks for the update,
As you have mentioned in your post, this has to do with the Bios Setup password. In this scenario, this looks like a possible hardware failure where the motherboard may require a tattoo/Bios Flash.
