Unfortunately, no one would be able to help you with that.

 

There are supposedly free Windows password cracking software out there on the net you can do a search for.

 

Otherwise you will need to reinstall Windows with a recovery disk or a plain Windows installation disk, if you are asked for a password to use the recovery disk (which I have never heard of).

Hi:

 

Enter any BIOS password 3 times and see if the PC generates a system disabled (halt) code.

 

If it does, please post that code.

You're very welcome.

 

You should be able to just boot from the recovery disk and reinstall Windows.  I have only read about needing a password when you use the recovery manager to reset the operating system.

 

With the recovery disk in the DVD drive, restart the notebook and at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, tap the F9 key to get the boot options menu.

 

Select the DVD drive, hit the enter key and watch the screen for further instructions.
