"POST Power-On Password" problem

HP ProDesk 600 G2 Microtower
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

When I start computer I am requested to enter "POST Power-On Password".


I have never set this password and I do not know it. This window can not be passed away. do not allow you to enter BIOS setup or to reset it on CMOS button.


OS Win 10 downgraded to Win7 Pro  (this is on original label)


Please tell me what to do so I can continue working.

The only suggestion I can offer would be to follow the power on password clearing info in the service manual, chapter8, starting on page 105 -- Resetting the Password Jumper.


You should be able to clear the power on password by removing the green jumper located on the motherboard as long as Stringent Security was not enabled.
