This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard drive.
Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. We recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.
If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
Then try re-booting and tapping the f12 key which should start up a diagnostics page
You have more patience than I do. I'd load Linux on a flash drive (Mint or Ubuntu MATE are my current favorites) and see how well it ran on those, then install. HPs usually run Linux perfectly. You're not still running Vista, are you?
Most Linuxes come with LibreOffice so you can read and write all Microsoft proprietary formats; you can set it to save in .docx by default.
I think the boot order on the laptop has been changed and the laptop is trying to boot from the LAN (NIC/Ethernet) port.
To change the boot order you need to access the BIOS. On older IBM laptops (and this is dependant on the model) the BIOS Utility is entered by holding F2 while the ThinkPad logo is displayed after power on, or, with the unit powered off, hold the F1 key and power the unit on. Keep F1 held down until Easy setup appear. The key is either F1 or F2.
On other models there is a blue Access IBM button when the message "To interrupt normal startup,
press the blue Access IBM button" is displayed to enter the ThinkVantage
Productivity Center, then select Start setup utility to open the BIOS Setup Utility.
once in the BIOS look for the boot order of the computer and change the boot order to the HDD (hard disk drive). There will be instructions on the screen on how to change the boot order. Save the changes and restart the laptop. Hopefully it will now boot into the hard drive and load the operating system.
If u r using desktop then just replace the cmos battery in the motherboard so it will work.
or u just download the bios update file from hp site and download the latest bios version and try it out.
But if u r talking about lap then u need to reset the bios settings or u just download the bios update file from hp site and download the latest bios version and try it out. Hope this solution will help u to solve the prob.
how to get into CMOS, simplly put F1, OR F2, F10,F12, OR DEL key, but very depend on your laptop itself.
tips, whatever key you need, will show on the boot up screen , like : type Fxxxxx for setup, Fxxxxxxxxx for boot up device order .
for your laptop, may have chance that you laptop too old, some model of ram are not fully compareable.
while switching on your system press F10 and the go to the Advanced setup. There you select and press Enter key on change boot order and then change the order by using Page up or page down key. Alternatively you may use Esc key while showing the compaq logo on boot, you will be able to change the Boot Order.
