BIOS admin password

HP Recommended
HP Elitebook 850 G3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, my system is running fine but I am not sure of my BIOS admin password (to enter in BIOS settings; I have no system password at computer startup).

What will happen if I try 3 times a wrong password there? Will my system be halted and I will not be able to use my computer anymore or is it just the access to the BIOS that will be locked? If I restart the computer, will I have the opportunity to retry passwords?

 

Thank you for your help
