Welcome to Fixya
You are having that issue because the system is not able to detect the operating system of your computer. This could be caused by two reasons, The hard drive of your computer may already be defective and is no longer detected by the computer or the operating system of your computer is corrupt.
If this issue is caused by a corrupt operating system then you can try to press F11 for system recovery. This would cause the system to restore to its factory condition. Please note that this step would cause you to lose data on you computer.
You can also try to press F9 to run diagnostics on the hard drive of the machine. If it displays an error the hard drive of your computer is defective and you would have to contact HP to check If you still have warranty and get a replacement Hard drive
Hope this helps

If you are talking about the password that is just ask when the comp starts....You can try this...
password prevents use of the computer until the password is entered. The
setup password prevents unauthorized changes to Computer Setup. To clear the
passwords, you must remove all power from the system board. If you do not know the
passwords, use the following procedure to clear the password:
1. Remove all battery packs.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait thirty minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power. DO NOT INSTALL THE BATTERY!
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST), a â 162 System Options
not setâ message appears.
7. Shut down the computer, then disconnect AC power again.
8. Replace the real-time clock battery.
9. Install the battery pack(s).
10. Reconnect the AC power.
11. Start the computer.

• The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:
??¢ If you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:
??¢ Open HP System Recovery:
??¢ CAUTION: Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.
- Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.
- If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.
??¢ Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.
??¢ If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.
??¢ At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.
??¢ Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd
??¢ If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .

??¢ The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.
??¢ If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.
