Hi myronray,

Check page 89 of this guide:

and try to clear the CMOS. The button labeled "SW6" will do the trick.

This will reset settings however if the RBSU is completely corrupt it will not be recoverable. You will need to contact HP for a replacement system board.

good luck, if you appreciate the answers we appreciate the points!
