HP nc4010 BIOS recovery startup and cant boot from USB
Does anyone know how boot at BIOS recovery MODE.
Yesterday i touched something and i saw Updating KEYBOARD BIOS and some other things but i was far away to read other stuff.
I also have some problems starting it up because some one did a bad bios update and i thought that ram or motherboard is not working. sometimes it turns up ok and freezes( have to restart) sometime it doesn't boot up just turns up and fan goes to max with Black Screen, after removing battery and external power it boots up but it freezes again sometimes, sometimes its OK.
and i cant boot from usb i can boot one time and another time i cant i have to make a boot able usb from the beginning to work.

Re: HP nc4010 BIOS recovery startup and cant boot from USB
I'm having a very similar problem with my nc4010. It seems to have started when I replaced my hard drive, but I don't think it could be a problem with the hard drive itself since the computer has even frozen in the BIOS configuration screen.
I was thinking about trying to flash the BIOS, but the version I have is already the most recent, and I'm worried that the computer will freeze during the flash and brick the motherboard.
Lum-X, if you see this: did you ever figure out what was wrong or how to fix it?
Everyone else: I can't find any way to directly communicate with Lum-X through this forum's interface. Is there a direct messaging option somewhere that I just haven't found?
