Hi @maubashor

 

Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for choosing HP.

 

Could you post the system disabled code *here* in the forum so that I or somebody else provides you with the options based on this code ?  Post everything, the entire code - numbers, letters, prefix, etc...

Hi @maubashor

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Do you only see this number 40950214 , or the code changes with every restart/attempt ?

Do you see any prefix before it , like letters i , l ?

 

 

If the code does not change and if there are no prefixes, you need to enter  55631830  in response to the provided code. Hit [ENTER] eventually and your BIOS will be reset, security settings, too and you will enter BIOS. Or you may use the 55631830 code instead of BIOS password.

 

Let me know how it goes.
