no operating system stated, vista, XP , windows 7, or w10 upgraded
what? we cant NOT GUESS THIS. NO ONE CAN< blind.

BIOS is that screen that works, with the hard drive missing,
the minimum intelligence in the system. MIOS is better name.

when you boot and you see words on the screen those first words
like hit F1 for BIOS, or F9 or F10 or Escape.
that is BIOS talking to you,! all PCs do , 1984 to now.
BIOS actually boots the HDD or CDROM or a STICK USB
if you tell BIOS to do that, called configuring BIOS>
end bios 101 (im 69yo)

all we have here is MUTE button as INPUT,
I take it you never downloaded the HP manuals on this?
lucky you they are still there. as old as 2011 sys.

for this to work only the HP windows disks , used to install
fresh windows, works, MS did not MAKE YOUR MACHINE
Microsoft may not support this, , its a HP device only!
  1. so did you use the wrong disks to install windows.
  2. did you attempt to install drivers here ever? oops.
  3. to make this key work there are 2 paths.
  4. one path is install HP , op sys fresh, (you never stated yours)
  5. you install that and all works like new. end story.
  6. or path 2, vastly harder, using the HP page for your EXACT laptop and exact OS loaded (not MS but HP OS)
  7. you then install all related drivers., the can be 2 or 3 depending on what laptop you have and OS installed. on my HP
  8. the top panel seen below runs off a panel driver from HP.
  9. There are under lying chip drivers that must work first.
  10. so you go to DM , control panel device manager.
  11. and correct all yellow or red marked bad drivers first.
  12. Ill end there, i can not type every permutation of failure here, and the corrective actions step by step.... depends on whats wrong
  13. or if the laptop is INFECTED with VIRUS. and other factors.
  14. like others installing wrong drivers or wrong OS< etc.

Only if your operating system will not boot. Even then, with most modern computers you can boot to recovery files or installation programs on a USB or memory card.
Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool available from Microsoft makes it possible to burn an image of an .ISO version of windows to a USB stick.

It may be a hard drive error. Run chkdsk/f as soon as you are able and then check the registry for errors.

try removing the battery and just having the power pack connected.

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Oct 30, 2013

Try removing the battery, disconnect the power cord. Remove any other devices such as USB devices. Hold down the power button for about 1 min. Release the power button. Connect the power cord only, not the battery. See if the laptop will power up. If not please let me know the indicator light flash pattern.
