Here is the home support page at HP for your notebook, and here is the startup troubleshooter with detailed steps to work through that will help you to diagnose the problem. (See also here, possibly here.)
Since the bios is not completely, you may have a failed hardware device or conflict, and could try removing the optical drives and booting that way. You can download a service manual for your notebook from the hp home site above, or contact HP directly for guided assistance.
See also this general startup troubleshooting article that may help you to zero in on the source of this problem....and here's a somewhat dated but worthy boot troubleshooter, with good reference info.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Fan just work for seconds


Replace the fan or your computer will run hot and keep turning off.

Or are you saying this is what happens when you power on the computer? if so: When you press the power button do you hear fansrunning, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lightsconstantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer ofthe DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying toboot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Drive door stuck. paper clip will not work to open


You don't mention which model this is..so this is a generic solution
Best solution. If you can't get the CD tro eject by the paperclip method, or by trying to eject using the DVD drive icon in my computer try this:

Under the laptop, locate the screw that holds the DVD drive in place and gently ease the dvd drive out of the laptop body. (If you are unlucky, it may be locate under the keyboard, in which case,you will need to remove the keyboard).

Once out, at the sides of the DVD drive, there are 2 small plastic clips that need to be gently pushed inwards, this will release the front cover plate. Once this is removed, you should be able to get access to the drive and ease out the CD by pressing the contact that releases the tray

Check the operartion of the tray, if it is rough or notchy and does not go back smoothly,. you may need to replace the drive

Hello
Head of to the Acer website.Put in your model and serial # of your laptop. Find and download the cd or dvd drivers and install them on your laptop.

Also have you done the windows updates? Usually this will solve the problem.

Hi my mac shows the white light on the lid switch and some times i hear the dvd drive spin up but thats it nothing else? any idears


can you explain a bit more since it kinda doesn't make sense on what your asking.
1. the light is meant to be on, thats what tells you if the power is on or not, if you switch off the macbook the light will go off.
2. for the disk driver, sometimes its the fan making a noise dont be fooled by it,  or maybe it makes a noise because you have opened up a program that may need the disk drive e.t.c.
