Last night my PC worked fine. I just turned it on and got the HP screen but nothing else. Because of what I was doing last night, I unplugged the internal drive that has all my music mix downs on it for fear of accidentally deleting it. I checked all the connections to the main drive and the 2nd drive. All ok. I tried to boot up and got an F1 message, turned it off, reconnected the 2nd drive, rebooted, and got the F1 system change again.
I forgot to say it would not read the repair disk nor the Win 10 disk.
Clicked F1, it accepted it but said there is a battery problem.
My question is why did it finally boot after 5 or 6 attempts, then finally got the system change message?
Is it as simple as replacing the battery?
