Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on your HP 2000-219DX Notebook and getting a blank or black screen on startup. When you first turn on the computer you start to press F11 repeatedly till the menu opens. You can do a system restore from the F11 menu. If the menu is not coming up try performing a hard reset. When performing a hard reset, you must disconnect or remove all peripheral devices (USB).
Hope this is helpful.

When I click on F11 it went to the Language Keyboard Setting. I clicked on the US keyboard layout setting and the screen just stayed on this screen. The screen isn't frozen bc my mouse pointer can still highlight the selection that I go to.

Try hitting just the enter key. If that does not work try performing a hard reset again.

I had to right click on US keyboard language. Then it went to the screen with the time and date in the lower left hand corner on a blue screen. So then I did a hard reset, and it went right back to this screen. And it has been on this screen for the past four hours.

Please note remove any and all USB devices, and remove memory cards from the card reader slot. Disconnect all non-essential device. Try at startup to keep pressing F11 to do a system restore.
Hope this helps.

Have you changed any hardware on the computer? Can you boot the computer into safe-mode?
Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
Select Safe Mode and press Enter. It might ask you for the Admin password.
Did the computer give your a number on the failure ID code?
Let me know.
