HP problems -_- - Page 2

post #11 of 17
You can't reset the CMOS without opening the case. If the system is under warrenty you can use the customer support, you paid for it when you bought the system and issues should be covered. If it's not under wanrrenty anymore then open the case and look for a circular battery on the board, nearby should be the CMOS reset jumper, move from pins 2-3 to 1-2 then back again. Locking up on the post screen would seem to me that it's not finding something, like RAM. I hope you don't have a ton of dust built up in there causing issues because they should be cleaned from time to time to keep them running well.

if it is still under warranty as much as you hate it, it might be best to just contact hp so you don't void your warranty.
If it is out of warranty look online where is the battery for the bios in your laptop. Some have a really easy access to it like
opening the cover to the nic card or some where near the RAM/HDD. I think I had once a laptop that had a small hole where you
could push a button to reset the BIOS, too.

Um it's a desktop btw guys XD
I just contacted HP and they said it appears to be a faulty hard drive and they'll replace it when I organise a technician to look at it
Why can't they just mail me out a hard drive and I swap it :it'd save everyone lots of time lols

If the HDD doesn't boot that doesn't mean the drive is dead, corrupted boot sector probably. Make sure to backup your data off it if you still can even if they replace the HDD.

Uh man I'm tired I guess I did not read everything that well. I thought all this time you were talking about a laptop.
But, i'm glad you got it solved.
