Strange Red Circle Overlay

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

As soon as the bios loads up on this relatively new desktop, a red circle appears, it looks like an aiming sight, on the computer.  It remains through load up, the sign in screen and overlays every program, even the mouse cursor.  I have no idea how to came to be and I am worried that it is a virus infecting the bios.  Help.

Strange Red Circle Overlay


Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


Have been messing with PCs since the mid 1980s. Never saw this one before.


You see a perfectly formed, red circle from the POST to a successful operating system startup. You then see a circle in everything you do within Windows. Is this circle fixed at one point on your display or does it move around?


Contact HP (Link) if you are in warranty.


Have a local PC tech take a look.
