Ok, so what you are saying is the computer hangs at some point, is this correct?
If this is correct and you know a little bit about the computers BIOS utility, you might want to go into the BIOS setup and see if it is configured to HAULT ON ALL ERRORS
. If this is true, then change it so it does not hault on any error.
Next thing to do is look for any wording related to the following group of words in the BIOS menu section such as Load best configuration
or Load System Defaults
in some cases the F5
is associated with one of these BIOS configurations. Which ever keys they are referenced to use those configurations.
Make sure any changes you make to the BIOS are saved by hitting the F10
key and confirm those changes with a yes, when asked.
I suggest you also look to make sure the system date and time are correct, if they are not, then your CMOS battery has died and needs replacing.
