If you can't do a shutdown via the software, press and hold the power button in for about 5 seconds. It will turn off. Then press the power button to start booting.

Watch the monitor carefully for a message similiar to: For Setup Press F10. For Recovery Press F11. They can be any F keys, but you have to be quick. You only have a few seconds to make a choice. If you miss it, try again.

Once you press the correct F key, it should open the Recovery program on your computer. Do a full recovery.

You may also be able to initiate the recovery program inside Windows. Sometimes the program is in Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Recovery.

My HP Pavilion 515n pc will not restart without pressing the F2 key, why?


Message was "press F2 to continue". This happens when there are errors in the boot up process like:


CMOS settings incorrrect
Date/Time incorrect
Missing drive

First to replace should be the CMOS battery inside the computer.

Hi .... I tried to plug in an external USB drive that had previoulsy been attached to my PVR. Runnign Win 7 Ultimate. Got message about an INITIO driver being installed and then the drive access light...


is the usb drive still attached? if so, unplug it from the pc and see if this fixes the boot issue. If so, you most likely have your bios set up to boot from usb first. You can either change this order or remove the usb drive every time you reboot.

After a long time trying to start my computer has a blank screen that says "system failure insert recovery disk" I have recovery disk that I made when the unit was new. but they do not do anything.


Try rebooting the computer with the back up disk inserted in the slot. This should work because the computer looks at all the disk drives when it reboots. And should default to the backup disk. :)

HP Assistant


Logged in as an administrator, look under Start --> Program Files --> HP Product Assistant

Click on Preferences. Disable all four options from basic as well as the advanced tab.
If that doesn't work (after a reboot), try using msconfig. (Start --> Run... msconfig) and unchecking things by HP that look like they might be the offending program. Uncheck one at a time and reboot to see if that does the trick.
Good luck.
