BIOS asks for a password after reset

HP ProBook x360 440 G1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


My problem is that i did a BIOS reset (restored factory default settings) and now it asks for a password that i don't know. Before the reset, i set up a password, but with that one I can't get in. I tried inserting it with the on-screen keyboard too.

So, is there a default password for my notebook's BIOS? I saw that some people here used a 'halt code' to recover the BIOS but i don't know how to get that code or what that is.
