HP BIOS note

article #18, updated 5399 days ago

Had an HP laptop today which, when powered up, flashed by the BIOS keyboard prompt to blank screen, and gave an audible alarm. F2 does not bring up the BIOS setup on this laptop; however, not knowing this, I tried F2 (the prompt flashed very quickly), and it booted up fine. Conclusion: F2 is probably some sort of BIOS reset for current HP.
