BIOS setup password not allowing me to type

HP Recommended
Elitebook 840 G4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I configured my BIOS to ask for a numeric password (not the boot startup, the BIOS setup) and for a while it worked fine as I typed it to acces the config. 

But now it doesn't work anymore, once I enter in the menu that asks me for the password, It doesn't allow me to type any character or number (If I randomly press keys on the keyboard it apparently types something, but I can't see what because of the password dots), It only allows me to change the Language. I've tried to change the LANG and still doesn't work.

I attach a screen photo.



Additional info:

I recently updated my system to Windows 11, with Windows Insider Program, but I believe that this is independient to BIOS.
