BIOS ISSUE

HP pavilion all in one desktop pc

I’d be grateful for some support. 
my computer will not start up, when I use the power button button the display says

 

”checking media presence”

”no media present”

 

I am concerned as I am unable to access the bios. I have tried f1 right through to the highest. I have also tried using windows and b. Any further advice would be most appreciated. If I can access the bios I can restore it.

 

thank you

This did not work. I still get no further than "no media found". Any other ideas?

@Greend1989,

 

Are you able to boot to BIOS?

Did you try running the hardware diagnostics?

 

Cheers!

No, I am completely unable to access the bios. I have tried all of the f buttons, tried using escape, I even read somewhere that some devices use the windows key and b or the windows key and v. Nothing seems to work at all. Ca not get off this screen.
