Enter the incorrect password THREE times.

After you do, a numeric code will be displayed.

Post that code here.

One of the "experts" on this forum will use that code to tell you a different password that you will need to enter.

Once you have entered BIOS SETUP mode, set a new password.

Greetings!

Your situation is not simple, so be patient during the answer arrives (which is not guaranteed).

 

Nowadays business series notebook pc's has tougher security protection, error code not necessarily exists / help.
Hopefully the this link will give you some helpful advices.

 

Anyway as a temporary solution, boot order can be modified dynamicaly on startup via F9 boot menu. You can read about dynamic and static boot order eg. in this manual.

 

Best luck!

I wish we could help you, but sorry, due to recent changes in Community policy, we are no longer able to provide any assistance with password reset or recovery issues.

Also please note that now, to resolve a forgotten BIOS password issue, a system board replacement is required -- and additional customer costs apply, HP has issued this post about BIOS passwords: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06368824.

In addition, according to the Community's Rules of Participation (which you can read from here: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/hp.rulespage😞

4d. No posts shall include instructions or directions intended to bypass or subvert security measures, including passwords, locking mechanisms, fingerprint scans, etc., or to bypass any safety measures.

For assistance NOW, you have to contact your regional HP Customer Support location directly as they will confirm ownership of the PC before providing any assistance -- something we are not able to do from here.
