BIOS "Admin Password or Power On Password" needed for startup

Right before this problem happened, I had suddenly experienced a weird screen glitch and knew to restart my computer. Now, it asks for a BIOS admin or power on password which I did not set. What the heck is going on, and what could I do to fix this??

 

 

--WHAT-I-HAVE-TRIED--

I have tried "12345"

I have tried a blank field

I have tried "biosPower"

--------------------------

 

--COMPUTER-INFO--

Product: HP Stream Notebook 11 (no touchscreen)

Product version: 8.1 (x64 architecture)

----------------------

 

If I need to put any more info, just ask.

@GlitchMasta47

 

At the password screen, hit enter 3 times and you should receive a halt code - enter this on the site below.

It works! Thank you so much!! Would I have to enter that password into the BIOS setup to clear it, or something?

Hi,

 

You're welcome :generic:

 

Entering the code should have removed the requirement for a power on password altogether.

 

All the best,
