Okay, got caught by the phone scammers. Now I have a ransomware password on powering up my little computer. I get an error code (53040730) if I try to bypass it. I found somewhere that if I have that code somebody can tell me how to unlock the dang thing.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Power-on and start tapping the Esc key.
If you can run the HDD Diag Tests.

After shutting down and pressing the escape upon reboot my screen shows this:
F1 System Information
F2 System Diagnostics
F9 Boot Device Options
F10 BIOS Setup
F11 System Recovery
ENTER - Continue Startup
For more information, please vist: www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup
