I held the power button down for about 10 seconds and it shut off completely. I waited a few minutes then turned it back on, and heard 2 beeps and the next screen is black and says f1 to resume or f2 for setup. I tried f2 but it doesn't work only f1.
F1 boots me to my desktop and it seems as if everything is working fine from there except the wireless and I get a pop up that says HP Wireless Assistant did not detect any supported wireless devices. I also get a New Hardware found bubble and when I click it, it says "PCI to micro channel bridge" I tried to install it and it wouldn't and for some reason I can't connect to the internet using my LAN to try to get the info online to install it.
I do have the application and driver recover dvd that I ran last night that I don't think helped.
Today when I turned the computer on I heard the 2 beeps again and same screen, pressed f1 it went through the whole booting process and I still can't connect to the internet. I do get the same HP Assistant message, however this time when it says new hardware found it is for Texas Intruments PCIxx21/x515 Cardbus Controller and it won't install either.
So that's my chapter in the book, if anyone could help me out that would be great.
Thanks in advance
