Hello, I'am New to this forum.
I have a Problem with My POS (What it is right now) Computer. It is a HP Pavilion 510M Desktop. It has windows XP.

Here is the Problem:
When you turn it on, Right after the HP logo there is a Blinking Cursor. Usually there is supposed to be the XP Screen.

I cannot Access The Bios Via F8.
Recently, I have Checked both of the Hard Drives. They are in Working Order.

What can be the Problem?


TIA

Not to sound mean, but did you try any of the things they suggested?

you don't access bios by f8, but by del, f1 or f2

Go there, then reset to defaults.

Yes, I did try What they had done. The other Problem is they do not Post here anymore and their E-mail are Private.

I Tried F5 (FactoryDefault) and then F10 (Save) While at the AwardBios Screen.

Still Doesent Work. Also Tried Rebooting the XP, Disconnecting all possible Culprits.
