Hp split wont let Power on password be entered

Hp Splitx2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I boot my computer it just beeps and won’t let me enter administrator/ power on password. Is there something I am missing? It is the bios boot admin / power on prompt that doesn’t show anything in the box when I type the password even when I just hit enter it won’t do nothing. I just have to hold the power button down to shut it off or else the beeping drives me nuts

@Herickson

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

  • Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
  • Have you made any hardware/software changes?
  • Did you make any changes in the settings of your PC prior to the issue?

While you respond to that, let's try these steps: 

Firstly, run Hard Reset: Follow steps from the link: https://hp.care/2GnkMa8  

Next step, BIOS default: 

  1. Turn off the computer and wait five seconds.
  2. Press the Power button to start the computer and repeatedly press the F10 key to enter the BIOS setup menu.
  3. On the BIOS Setup screen, press F9 to select and load the BIOS Setup Default settings.
  4. Press F10 to Save and Exit.
  5. Use the arrow keys to select Yes, then press Enter when asked Exit Saving Changes?
  6. Follow the prompts to restart your computer.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
