HP Recommended
Pavilion Model DV5-1253CL
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Received this HP Pavilion model DV5-1253CL with Windows 7 Pro from family member and it is stuck on the start screen that shows HP symbol and says at bottom left side "Press ESC key for Startup Menu".

I've tried pressing the ESC key and it doesn't help. Also I tried doing Hard reset process with pulling battering and disconnecting power cord, then pressing Power button for 30 seconds- resulted in nothing.

Tried pressing F10 for BIOS Menu and the screen only says BIOS Menu but doesn't actually load. Also tried F11 for system restore and it resulted in the same saying at bottom of screen "System Recovery " but it doesn't do anything,  doesn't load up. Its stuck on black start screen that says "HP invent".

 

Does anyone know how to fix this? 

I tried loading my Windows XP disc to see if it would and nope, nothing happened.
