What I have tried:

-

I've put any password i would consider, and put my fingerprint but entering wrong password 3 times. No pass code was shown afterwards. Just "System Locked" message and then I needed to restart. I

- Pressed "Esc" button repeatedly before the Power-On Authentication screen. The text "Entering Setup Menu" showed up in the bottom left screen, but it still went to the Power-On Authentication anyway.

 

What can I do to access and then clean up the laptop?

I'm okay with having the disk erased and getting a new Windows license, if needed.

I don't have anything else other than the laptop, what can I do? If someone knows pls tell me..
