This Compaq CQ2000 got into a loop when it tried to upgrade to Windows 11.
First the system kept on trying to boot then it just died.
A working Hard Drive was installed but nothing happens. The power button remains blue, the screen remains black and both fans are running.
I wonder if the BIOS has been corrupted somehow.
Any help would be appreciated

OK, I tried resetting the CMOS, removing the battery, waiting, then replace it.
Now the PC tries to boot, I can hear the harddrive or the CD drive spinning up.
It keeps on trying to boot every few seconds.
F10 doesn't do anything.
At least something is happening!
