    this is the netbook so no CD even with a USB flash pen with Wn 7 on it wont boot up - so think BIOS if ****ed

    just been googling around and may be able to use a bios recovery method by getting hold of the bios file, sticking it on a usb flash and turning machine on and holding ctrl+home key

    problem is trying to get hold of the BIOS file, as HP website has the file as a Windows exe file so unable to extract the BIOS file

    am sure will manage to get hold of a copy

    no why would that cause the symptoms - always been under impression once cmos battery goes, it will load default settings, set date to 1980 and boot up, where as this one doesnt even boot up

    Certain exe files can be extracted with the likes of WinRAR...

    Depends, I have seen odd BIOS problems when the battery has died.

    replaced the battery, same problem but get a different error message about date not set on POST screen still hangs at the HP Logo

    managed to get hold of a BIOS ROM done the recovery BIOS flash technique which worked but still not fixed

    ohh well will stick it on EBay and see what I get - any ideas how much I can get for it.

    its is actually a nice neat laptop shame its knackered now
