Well, that's absolutely abnormal. Generally the problem can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try the hp speed up tool http://www.speeduphp.com/ to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues. Regards!

Hit F1 prompt means the bios settings are not saved and the cmos battery needs replacing, check to see if time and date are wrong to confirm, if so take to a repairer unless you can remove the bottom panels and locate the battery

HP m9510f will not boot up.


no boot M9510f,
no boot is like the all time #1 complaint on PCs.
endless posts online on this and for sure at HP.. ever read their forums?
there real name is (and is supported still at HP) is
HP Pavilion Elite m9510f Desktop PC
no statement on screens, is the screen dead, and black
never once see HP logo, never see words to the effect
hit ESC to enter HP setup (BIOS) or F1 or F10 or????? do tell please.
that is first, forget windows now (its LAST)
screen model or maker stated ,
my guess a flat screen LCD
and the front button on it works and the screens local OSD menu works, right?
if PC is dead, the screen is checked first. for sure if BIOS screens in the PC are 100% dead, no text no F1,ESC,F10 keys prompted in text means PC dead or SCREEN dead.


here is HP page on your pc
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-elite-m9500-desktop-pc-series/3824167/model/3876396/troubleshooting


here is black screen tests.
the screen (DISPLAY monitor) has its own brain
and is called OSD, on screen display
we check that first. always........ if screen is made before 2000 year
we trash it.... LOL (before first brains inside )

black screens, Desktop only.

HP pavilion will not power up


Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings its an hp pavilion dv4000


  • Using the recovery partition
    • 1 Turn on your computer and insert your recovery disc. Press F10 during start-up to open the console. This opens up the HP recovery console.
    • 2 Click "Next" on the screen that appears.
    • 3 Choose whether you want a nondestructive recovery (one that keeps your files in place) or a destructive one (one that erases your disk and rebuilds your system to factory defaults). If most of your files aren't corrupted or are still usable, go with a nondestructive recovery. Otherwise, perform the destructive recovery.
    • 4 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear to restore your HP Pavillion.
  • Using recovery discs
    • 1 Turn on your computer. Press F1 at the first logo screen to enter the BIOS menu.
    • 2 Move to the Boot Options section of the BIOS menu. Look for the Boot Priority menu.
    • 3 Set the Boot Priority option to booting the CD-ROM first.
    • 4 Insert the first recovery disc into the HP laptop. Then press "Enter" on your keyboard to save your settings and exit. The computer will then reboot into the recovery console.
    • 5 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear, to restore your laptop.

    HP Pavilion ze2308wm laptop won't boot up


    It could be the memory modules (RAM). Get the information from those RAM sticks (manufacturer) and replace them with new ones to see if that solves the issue, if not then maybe the hard drive, and if it's neither of those, I hate to say it, but it sounds like a bad motherboard :(

    When turned on monitor flashes hp, boot(F-1), etc. screen and goes blank. Harddrive fans are running with no other activity.


    Your system is trying to run. If you can see on the screen what key(s) to get to setup, <del>, (F1), hit the key and get to setup. See what video card you are trying to go to first. Then check your boot order. Make sure your Battery which backs up this information is good. Is the date correct?
