HP Envy m6-1205dx
Weirdest thing ever... A little background first. I had a VERY hard time getting this computer to do a recovery to factory settings. After about 11 attempts switching between recovery partition, disc set ordered from HP, and the recovery discs I made from the computer it FINALLY finished. (All other attempts I got a message that said recovery failed and then had the option of three choices...something like "View Log" "Save Log' and "Retry") What I did that FINALLY let the recovery finish all the way was to press the spacebar on keyboard every time the HP splash screen came up. Then, the little white circles under the hp logo would start moving and it would go on to the next part of the software/driver installation. Now, however, every time I restart the computer I HAVE to press the spacebar once or it just hangs on the hp splash screen. I have done ALL windows updates and all driver updates via HP website. The only additional software I have installed is Mozilla Firefox. I have reset BIOS to factory defaults - Secure Boot back on since I had to disable it to install with discs. Little things like time & date are correct. I've run diagnostic on all hardware and it passes.
PLEASE HELP!!!! I have never encountered anything like this before and I am at a loss as to how to fix it!!!!!!!!!!
Any ideas?? Anybody?
Thank-you for taking the time to respond!!!
