If you only tried Windows + B keys then the instructions were not followed correctly at all. They are quite specific and involve three keys in sequence given.

If you don't remember anything you did in BIOS, or can't converse with us about the settings involved we deal with here every day to downgrade, then you're better off taking it to a shop or asking HP to service for you.

Stop worrying about it and get the bios fixed.

You should have a COA with a key on it, once you fix the bios we will go from there.

Let`s get the laptop back up and running, one step at a time.

Step #1 Fix the bios, report back when you get that done.

Good luck, HP should be able to square up your machine.
