Hi,

 

Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu.  Select the Bios option ( usually f10 ) and under the Advanced or Diagnostic tab you should find the facility to run tests on both the Hard Drive and Memory.  Post back with the details of any error messages.

 

Note:  If the option to run these tests is not available in the Bios Menu, use the f2 diagnostic menu instead.

 

Can you also post back with the following details.

 

1.  The full Model No. and Product No. of your notebook - see Here for a guide on locating this information.

 

2.  The full version of the operating system you are using ( ie Windows 7 64bit ).

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

Can you access the bios menu from there or is the option unavailable/doesn't respond?

I put this up a few months ago and stopped getting replies so im trying again. Basically my laptop doesnt start. When i turn it on it goes to a recovery menu. I cant revert to an earlier date nor can i backup data to reset it.

It is an HP 630 running windows 7 , core i3 processor, 4gb ram and 500gb HD

Hi QuakeGamer,

 

I understand that you are having an issue getting your computer to start. I am sorry, but to get your issue more exposure I would suggest posting it in the commercial forums since this is a commercial product. You can do this at http://h30499.www3.hp.com/hpeb/ .

 

I hope this helps.

Hold down the number 2 button as you turn it on. If that dont work hold down f2 button when you turn it on. If that dont work hold down f11 when you turn It on. If that dont work contact the company of the laptop. It mightt be very hard to get a hold of somebody practically impossible but its worth trying. I know this is 6 years later but the people need to know
