Stuck on post delay

HP Recommended
Pavilion 500-530na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My computer randomly restarted when I was on it and now it will not boot. Every time I try to turn it on it gets stuck at the message executing post delay. I've tried to access the bios but I press the button and nothing happens. Thank you for support.

Hey there!

 

                     Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!

I understand that you are having trouble booting your PC.

Try the steps:

Power on the PC.

Hit Esc key during startup. Then press 10 key.

You should go into the UEFI/BIOS. Go to power options and select POST Delay.

Change Post Delay setting and set it to 0 (zero).  This should help solve your problem.

 

Let me know if this helps

Have a great day!

I have the exactly same problem and would very much like to know the answer.

 

The screen tells me to press Esc but nothing happens.

 

So far I've tried changing the bios battery, three keyboards, another ram slot, another ram,  motherboard bios reset jumpers, shortcutting the battery slot...
