Re: Boot

First thing to do is crack her open and unplug everything including the PCI cards and clear the CMOS via a jumper on the board then try to boot if that doesn work try taking the memory out , if it beeps then its more than likely memory, but if it still wont beep you either have a bad mainboard, powersupply or processor. Let us know :-)

My girlfriends Hp Pavilion A305W powers on then automatically powers off after it show a brief error message but also says F1 for startup. Should i press F1 and continue diagnosis?

Most probably your system is not getting your BIOS settings from your mainboard due to CMOS battery failure.

Check your CMOS 3.0v battery & replace it. Then reconfigure your BIOS settings from the CMOS setup.

Hope it helps
