Power-on Authentication Failure

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 850 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Overnight my laptop said it had to restart due to an update.  No problem.  However now when it powers on the Power-On Authenticator (I have it on for reasons) will no longer accept my fingerprint or my password.  Really not sure what to do,  I am gonna see if resetting CMOS on the motherboard will help.  At this point as long as I can get to a state where I can reimage ill do that.
