The bios is stored in the CMOS chip on motherboard not on the hard driver, the error message probably means it it scanning to find a hard drive to boot to. You should go into your BIOS and reset to factory defaults and see if this makes a diffrence. you may also have a failed hard drive which may need to be replaced.

How to restore corrupted BIOS of presario cq60 laptop


Whenever you upgrade the BIOS on your notebook, a copy of the previous version is stored in the HP TOOLS partition of your hard disk drive. Many HP notebook computers have an emergency BIOS recovery feature that allows you to recover and install the last known good version of the BIOS from the hard drive, as long as the hard drive remains functional. This emergency recovery feature is separate from the BIOS and is designed to work in the event of a catastrophic BIOS failure.To recover an earlier version of the BIOS on your notebook:
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Plug the notebook into power using the power adapter.
  3. Press and hold the Windows key and the B key down at the same time while the computer is off.
  4. Still pressing those keys, press and hold down the Power button on the notebook for 3 seconds and then release the Power button and the keys. The screen remains blank for about 40 seconds before anything appears on the display. You might also hear beeping sounds. Eventually, an HP BIOS Update screen displays.note.pngNOTE:If the computer fails to display an HP BIOS Update screen, press and hold the Power button for 5 seconds to turn off the computer. Wait 5 seconds and try again. If, after repeated attempts, you cannot open the HP BIOS Update screen, your computer does not support this function or it has a hardware problem that is preventing the tool from opening.Figure 1: HP BIOS Update screenc03376208.jpg
  5. When the BIOS has been recovered, a Continue Startup button displays and timer counts down. You can click Continue Startup to restart the computer or you can allow the timer to reach zero and the computer will restart automatically.Figure 2: HP BIOS Update screenc03376209.jpg
  6. After restoring the BIOS, if the computer repeatedly displays a message that the BIOS has been reset, then perform the steps in HP BIOS Application Selected is Corrupt or Missing .
  7. After restarting, Windows may display a message stating that the computer was improperly shut down or that a boot problem was detected. Read and respond to the screens to continue.

My Asus F9e doesnt start anymore. Not even in Secure Mode. What should i do ?


Did you get any error messages? Since the BIOS is available, the problem is likely with the hard drive or it's trying to boot from non-bootable media (DVD, flash drive, USB connected floppy/hard drive). Since you can access the BIOS, look for the Boot Selection Order and make sure that the hard drive is first in the list. If the BIOS doesn't see the hard drive, it may be bad or have a bad power or data connection. (You can try opening the computer and reseating the cables - see Asus for any assistance. I am not informed on opening the F9e.)
If the hard drive is seen by the BIOS:
Disconnect any USB devices (and the optical disc if it is in the drive). Turn off the computer. Unplug the notebook from the power supply and remove the battery. Wait 10+ seconds (or a few minutes) then reconnect the battery and then the power brick. Try restarting the computer. (This is a hard reset.)

What do you see on the computer screen? If you see a blinking cursor, the computer doesn't have the boot manager available (either corrupted or a new disc that hasn't had the OS installed). Use a Windows install/upgrade disc/system repair disc for your OS version (the service pack must match) or a third-party disc management tool to attempt to repair the boot manager.

You will need the optical drive as the first boot device in the BIOS or press Esc to access boot order list. (On some computers, it's F12.) For Vista or Win7, boot from the CD and follow the on-screen directions until you see a list of choices. If the hard drive was previously working, click on Repair your computer. Select the OS to repair then click Next. Select the Command Prompt option. Type in bootrec /ScanOs to get a list of available Windows OS versions on the hard drive. Use the command bootrec /FixBoot to fix the master boot record. The command bootrec /RebuildBcd will rebuild the list of Windows OS versions. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392 for details.

Installing a new hard drive and reinstalling the OS may be needed if you have a SMART or AHCI/SATA hard drive error. If you have a back up image, you may be able to restore that image.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with any error messages for more assistance.

Symptom 3: LEDs glow, fan noise may be heard briefly, display remains black, and computer fails to startup or boot Usually occurs if a component is installed incorrectly, or there is a device conflict or failure.
