Problems during/after CMOS clear procedure...

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear Sirs,

 

My computer is a HP Pavilion H8-1150sc.

Motherboard IPISB-CH2 (Chicago).

Processor 3.40 gigahertz Intel Core i7-2600.

Memory modules 4 x 4096 MB PC3-10600 (DDR3 - 1333).

OS Win10 64 bit.

 

No new devices, drivers. Connected to interneeeeet via LAN.

 

My computer refused to let me delete two documents from my hdd. Booted into safe mode and deleted the documents. After resart the computer refused to read the bios. Did a hard boot several times with no result. Consulted a friend who recommended a CMOS clear procidue.

Followed these steps to clear the CMOS settings:
  1. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord.
  2. Move the CLEAR CMOS/CLEAR P.W. jumper cap from pins 2-3 to pins 1-2.
  3. Plug in the power cord and turn on the computer for five seconds.
  4. Turn off the computer again and unplug the power cord.
  5. Move the CLEAR CMOS/CLEAR P.W. jumper cap from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3.
  6. Plug in the power cord and turn on the computer.
The CMOS settings are now clear. To enter BIOS setup, press the F10 key when the first screen displays upon system setup.
Point 3 was impossible to do since the power buttom do not turn the power on when the jumper is in clear posission?!
Despite that I now get the typical HP-blue screen imidiately after power up with the "press esc key for start up menu" and then appear a black screen :
Processor speed: 2400MHz
L1/L2/L3 Cache Size: 64KBx4 / 256KBx4 / 8192KBx1
Memory Size: 16384MB DDR3 / 1333 MHz / Dual Channel
Channel A: XMM1 4096 MB/XMM2 4096 MB
Channel B: XMM3 4096 MB/XMM4 4096 MB
Bios revision/Date: v7.11 09/05/2011
 
Default BIOS settings have been loaded
 
If I press F10, Esc or any other relevant key during the HP-blue screen will the command (ie "Setup" if F10, "Start Up Menu" if Esc etc) in the low right corner but then nothing!
I have disconnected HDD:s, SSD and optical drive and all USB devices but no changes...
The computer does not boot and I can not enter the BIOS.
The unit does not boot from USB or optical drive.
 
Please help!

Hi

 

Re-assemble Jonny Five to the best and original state you can.

 

Hold down WIN key + B then press power on Button.

 

If the BIOS has been erased/replaced then you may need to set all the parameters. like Date, Time, Boot Sequence, installed memory, Drives and peripherals.

 

You need to press the ESC key etc at POWER ON and not wait for any screen to appear.

 

If in doubt please ask.

Hi

 

The WIN key + B is to repair a BIOS, and perhaps yours did not need a repair.

 

Not sure what OS you are running, but this may be a later version than you have installed.

 

It does not solve your non booting problem.  But I don't know what media or OS you are trying to boot on what?

 

So you may have an usable machine.  F10 fails.
