Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
Have an HP Pavilion that takes sometimes an hour to boot up. When I turn it on it prompts me to hit F1
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 Generally the problem can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants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
