:welcome:    awhyobf,

 

Can you provide the exact model name or number of the HP computer so we can do some research.

 

With the computer isolated from the wall/power outlet;

 

Press the case power button to get rid of any residual charge in the system.

 

**Remove the Ram.

Remove and then replace the CMOS battery as described in my attachment below.

**Replace the Ram.

Reassemble, test and post back with an update for us.

 

** Do the same for any add on video card that you may have.
