Hi:

 

You can't reset the PC if you don't know the Windows password.

 

I checked the PC's product number on the HP cloud recovery tool database, and it is not supported.

Your only option would be to use the Microsoft media creation tool, create a bootable USB installation flash drive and clean install W10.

 

Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

 

After W10 has completed installing you can install the drivers and available software from the PC's support page.
