I have a hp computer that was running xp. Now it wont boot past the blue hp invent screen. I thought about trying to reinstall windows but the pc wont boot from the disk drive and i cant get to bios to make it do so. I've been working on this thing for weeks. Can anyone help me out?

When did this happen? Have you made any changes to the system recently? What was the last thing that was done before the computer stopped working properly? Once it tried to pass this "invent" screen, what happens? Black screen?

Please start your own topic as this topic is 3.5 years old and although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
