Hi @Jeremyjoe,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers.

 

As I understand there is a message - "Power-on Password/Bios password is locked" on your screen and you need assistance with the same,

 

You would have to contact HP phone support for a hardware service as the motherboard may require a tattoo/Bios Flash.

 

Any other way of unlocking the BIOS is not authorized by HP.

 

Keep me posted,

If I have helped you resolve the issue, feel free to give me a virtual high-five by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon below,

Followed by clicking on "Accept as solution" from the drop-down menu on the upper right corner,

Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum. Have a great day!

 

Regards,
