Answers :

How old is the motherboard? Open the case and make sure that all cables are connected properly and that the memory sticks are not loose.
\015\012If its an old mobo then the battery on the motherboard may be dead and needs replacing - this is what keeps all settings.
\015\012Going into bios and resetting to factory conditions may get you back into windows until the next time you turn off again.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
