Try guessing the password. After 3 attempts it will display a halt code. Post that code here.

I believe the HP 530 is a Business class laptop.Only Consumer class models can have password broken.

Thank you for this information. I sincerely have no clue of the difference between the Business and Consumer Class on the HP laptop, but this is a start to continue digging for a way to find a resolution.
