HP m7-1015Ddx won't boot up to the OS screen. Num lock stuck on red light with caps lock flashing twice which suggests bios corruption. Tried reseating RAM, power reset, removing CMOS battery for 20 minutes and Win+B button combination. Nothing seems to be working. Anything I'm missing?

 

Note to mention that it's a dual boot system with Win7/Win8

I would replace the CMOS battery...as the next cheap, easy thing to try.

 

Removing a weakened/failing battery...just does not cut it when compared to replacing it when trying to solve system configuration issues, IMO.
