Sorry to be blunt -- but basically, you can't.
BIOS and power-on passwords are contained in the firmware that is present inside the BIOS chips -- which are soldered to the motherboard and thus, are not replaceable. So, you can't just buy a replacement chip and swap them. Also, neither your nor HP can reset the BIOS password on the current motherboard. Thus, replacement of the motherboard is required with one that has a BIOS chip that does not have a password in the firmware. This is very expensive to do and can often cost more than simply replacing the PC
If you are not prepared to spend the money to get HP to replace the motherboard, you would have to take the PC to a local repair facility to see if they can do anything for you -- but we can not assist in that in any way.

Could you please help us who have the "Enter Power-On Password " problem with the solution you found.
I have the problem and there are no jumpers on the HP AIO 20-c23w.
HP should be ashamed of themselves for not putting out the answers to this problem. There are numerous people still looking for the fix. I agues they want the money for you to send in for repair.
