I fixed it!
The solution is very simple.
Just open the cover on the back, disconnect the CMOS battery. Then unplug the battery of laptop and power plug, let it rest for 20~40 minutes. This will allow the CMOS released.
Then, plug in the power. It works!
The only downside is the time and date on your computer will be set back. If you want to fix this minor problem, you need to buy a new CMOS battery. Also, because it was wired manually on the battery to hook it on. You need to hook wires on the button battery by yourself.
BTW: the BIOS update on HP website does NOT work.
I think HP knew what is the real cause for this problem, they just wont share it with us. This really pissed me off!
Even they changed a motherboard for you, it wont last longer than 2 years. Thus, the "free fix" wont solve this problem. Why dont they just public the method. It is just a minor thing, everybody with limited knowledge can fix it.
Who the hell want to change a laptop every 2 years with their own money? 3 or 4 years will be reasonable, 1 or 2 years? Jeez...
I will never ever buy a thing from HP again.
