Omni 200 incomplete boot

HP Recommended
Omni 200-500 QD all-in-one
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After long period non-use, I relocated my Omni 200 from home to cabin. At cabin I have slow DSL internet. When I turned on computer, I get the windows symbol and then sometimes, not always, it goes to the background photo, and then   all video goes dark and the machine will stop. I mentioned the length of time this computer was not used because I wonder if it is trying to do a Windows update but cabin DSL is too slow and it fails ??  I have tried to use the f11 keys during boot but it seldom works. The other f keys don't seem to work during bootup. Any ideas ?  I can't turn on computer to do diagnostics.

If you disconnect the DSL hardware from your computer, and then power-on your computer, does it start correctly, to show the Windows "wallpaper" and the desktop icons?

OK. Can you disconnect the power-cord that feeds power to the DSL device?

That definitely will block your WiFi adapter from making any connection.

Thanks for your help. I am at home now and computer is at cabin 250 miles away. I will have to go to cabin to try your suggestion. Might be a week or two. Will let you know as soon as I am able. Thanks.
