I put the password in and it caused the laptop to go into boot mode. Meaning it just restarts over and over. It doesn't go any farther than the HP screen and it no longer asks for a password.

Re: admin password or power on password

A bad hard drive can cause a machine to start asking for a password when none had been setup. Bad hard drive usually causes what you are now having also. 

Enter BIOS by tapping away at the F10 key immediately after powering on. Look for Diagnostics and test the hard drive.
