there should be a jumper on the motherboard to do this.... itll reset the bios. soemtimes theres a few keystrokes to do it. consult the docs of your laptop to do this. sicne its a laptop you may have trouble accessing the mainboard. there may be an open spot that HP left open for anyone to reset theier bios. I dont know havent touched an hp laptop in a long while.

go to do you have techtv channel they would have the answer

or go to www.g4techtv.com go to call for help or the screen savers .
write the word you want in the search and search reasult will be viewed
