Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password

HP 2000 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit)
My son went to turn on his laptop today and started getting this prompt as soon as you power the device on. There was never any administrator or Power On password set for this device and after 3 failed attempts, I get a System Disabled prompt with the following numbers. 94159158. Is there anyone who could help find what the password should be? Thanks in advance.

Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password

I have the same "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password" condition.   The code is:  87425024.  I will appreciate your assistance determining the unlock code.  Can you tell me what causes the laptop to boot into this requirement and/or point to me where I can configure a permanent setting(s) to prevent this from happening again? THANK YOU in advance.
