When I try to start it up it locks on the blue screen. I don't hear any beeps.
It gives me options of keys I can press but nothing happens when I press them (such as F10).
I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this problem.

Is this the HP splash screen you are reffering to? I've seen this before and it is usually related to the startup process not being able to find the hard drive. Try removing the hard drive and seeing if it then gets past the splash screen. If it does, reseat the hard drive and try again and see if it boots normally.

Thanks. I think I tried removing the hard drive already, but let me try it again and see if it works. I've had it sitting here for a while now because I couldn't figure out how to fix it. I'll post a reply with results.

Turning on the laptop using another bios chip then replacing it with the oem bios chip and the flash the bios..
A tough thing to do though, try to bring it to a local repair shop and let them see what can be done to it..

Hi, do you hear a beep when you remove the memory?
