    Identical problem, persist even after motherboard changed (my thirst thougt - it is this baterry). Also disk crashed, so HD is also brand new.And still quite frequently - switch on and before boot notebook totally frozen with F10 message.

    The only help - patiently switch off and on with a hope maybe one times it will boot.



    A reliable remedy:

    never buy anything from HP!

    I appreciate your trouble with English as it is a difficult language! I believe what you are trying to say is that you continually have the BIOS setup. That would be due to a CMOS or RTC battery problem. It is not clear whether you replaced that battery and whether that battery replacement was the exact replacement. Steve Medley

My compaq evo nc620c laptop wont boot up, only goes to the "compaq" log screen from where I can go into F10 rom based setup or F12 network boot only.


Without having seen it, it sounds like a hard drive problem. Could be dead, could be the boot info has been destroyed (virus?).

ROM setup should be able to tell you more about the hard drive, and whether Setup can see it.

in the setup utility, make sure the boot sequence is set to check the cd drive and then the hard drive in that order. hit f10 to save your settings and reboot. if your hd section is grayed out, then the system isn't seeing the hdd and it's probably bad.

Acer aspire blue screen appeared went off now laptop starts up for few seconds then turns off again, but always a black screen hear the fan a few seconds but nothing


Try this:
  • check to make sure the fan is actually spinning and that there is no debri (dust bunnies) causing it to overheat.
  • Make sure there is nothing preventing airflow, you may need to tilt the back up to allow more airflow
Is there any display at all? Do you see a BIOS splash screen? Do you hear a beep shortly after powering on?

--if you have a splash screen, go into BIOS setup by pressing a button (del,F1,F10...whatever) then set it factory defaults and save changes

--also try removing anything that's detachable (USB, cards, dvd-rom, RAM, Battery...) Hold down the power button for 20 secs then plug in only the A/C and see if you get a bios screen

Hope this helps

When I turn on the laptop sometimes the screen doesn't come up and when it does come up it says F10=ROM Based Setup. When I press F10 nothing happens.


Sounds like the hard disk is not able to boot the laptop.
ROM based setup means you need to reset or reconfigure the BIOS.
Assuming the BIOS battery is OK.
This could be because the hard disk itself died, you can remove the disk and attach it to a USB adapter (cheap to purchase) then connect it to another PC. If you can read the disk OK in another PC then you have a motherboard problem.
