Hi everyone


I have a HP MODEL: DV6 1131ea. The other night when I turned it on it would not boot and all I got was a blank screen.  I cannot boot into the Bios.


I have been on the HP Website and tried the following:


1.  Removing battery and cables and pressing down the power button for 1 minute.  Then, replacing cables and booting. 


2. Holding down the Windows key PLUS the B key and then the power key for 1 second and allowing the machine to boot into bios and restore the bios.   Those were the details I got some the HP website on my specific machine.


So, far nothing has worked.  I have heard it could be a problem with the motherboard.


Does anyone have any ideas?  Is it possible to boot into the BIOS from this situation?


Many thanks


Jake Shiraz



NB: In case anyone is thinking how I know the BIOS is corrupted it has a light which flashes intermittently next to the Capitals lock and another at the top right-hand part of the keyboard.

It may well be the battery. It is easy to change and here is a YouTube video on how to do it. If you get the Irn-Bru advert ahead of it, I thought it was hilarious !
