Welcome to the HP Support forum.
Obviously, somebody or something set the password 🙂
If related to BIOS/startup password before Windows loads
, please enter some password (wrong password) 3 times, press ENTER and you should receive a new window stating system disabled and a code similar to this one :
Please, take note of the system disabled/halted code & write it down back here the whole code - numbers + letters (whatever you see)

For that model and (HEX) code you will need to contact HP in your region and they should be able to generate your Master code from your “SYSTEM DISABLED CODE”

When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.
I have also heard that some have had success removing the RTC/BIOS battery???

No HDD at this time would have nothing to do with the password.
The BIOS battery is on the underside of system board.
