Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
Just stop booting then keyboard is not functioning
Got the same problem.
"Fixed it" by pressing ESC before the message appears. It brings you to a second screen to select the boot device.
Select the hard drive having the os and go on !
Ok, it doesn't prevent the message from appearing next time you boot but at least you have a way to access your OS :)

I got the same problem a few days ago on my HP ZD7140us laptop.
Simple solution: Just downloaded the HP (same) BIOS sp28962 again and reinstalled it.
PROBLEM SOLVED !! Anything else is just wasting your time.

I had this problem too. I entered the BIOS set-up by pressing DEL at the start-up sequence (just keep DEL button until BIOS set-up screen comes up). There are 'Main', 'Advanced', 'Power', 'Boot' and 'Exit' tabls on my systems. Enter 'Boot' - 'Boot Settings Confirmation' - 'Wait for F1 if Error' - change to 'Disable'. Exit and save changes. This solved my problem.

I need a bit more info to try to give you an accurate solution
Does the screen change after you press "F1" ?
Do you have access to an external keyboard, if so try plugging that in while the computer is off and then using that to press "F1"

Shut your computer down and remove the power cord.
Replace the power cord and press the "Power" button to restart it.
Watch the screen carefully for a message about computer setup.
Most computers use one of the function keys, which are aligned across the top of the keyboard, to access the computer's setup utility, but each manufacturer uses a different key.
For instance, HP computers generally use the F1 or F10 keys, while many Dell computers use the F12 key.
Press the appropriate function key to enter the computer's setup program, then scroll through the list of options until you see "Boot Order."
The exact location of the boot order option varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but it is often located under the Advanced menu.
Highlight the "USB Devices" option and press the up arrow key until that device is first on the boot order list.
This will force the computer to look at the external DVD drive first when it boots up.
Use the "Esc" key to exit the setup menu. Choose the "Save settings and exit" option and allow the computer to reboot.
It will now boot from the external DVD drive.
Hope this helps
