Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:
Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
Have you made any hardware/software changes?
Have you tried any troubleshooting steps?
While you respond to that, let's try these steps:
If you use a Microsoft email address and password to sign in, you can reset or change the password from any web browser. Go to Microsoft recover your account (in English) to create a new password.
If all attempts to recover your password are unsuccessful, you do not need to discard the computer. Instead, reset your PC to completely start over, creating a new password in the process.
CAUTION: Reset this PC erases all files and local passwords. This resets the computer to the last known good version of Windows 10. After the reset, a list of apps that are no longer available is saved on the Desktop. You can reinstall apps and software from the Store or from installation discs.
On the sign-in screen, press and hold the Shift key, click the power icon, select Restart, and continue pressing the Shift key until the Choose an option screen displays.
Click Reset this PC, and then click Remove everything.
Click Only the drive where Windows is installed.
Click Just remove my files, and then click Reset.
Windows reinstalls the operating system. When complete the Windows welcome screen displays.
