Hi amielu,

 

What model of PC do you have?

What operating system?

Did you make any changes to the PC prior to this issue occuring (changes such as installing new software or adding new hardware)?

Do you know what specific Pavilion model number it is (such as a1310y)?

 

Do you know what your son was doing on the PC before he left it?

 

Have you tried shutting it down and then turning it back on? You can force the PC to shut down by pressing and holding down the power button for about 5 seconds.

Hmmm...it sounds like something is going on with the hard drive. You'll need to see if your PC is recognizing the hard drive and if not, you may want to open the PC and unplug then replug in the cables to the hard drive.

 

Try the steps in this HP support document on troubleshooting startup issues:

Let us know how it goes.

Does the computer get to the blue HP logo screen? Make sure you press f10 multiple times as soon as you start the PC and see that logo screen.

I finally got it to do it the f10 finally worked

I see in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th drive it says none

if I follow the instructions and reset the bois - it says load set up defaults - if I do that will I loose anything on my hard drive?
