HP Pavilion a1730 - Will not respond at startup screen

by ThorIsFat / May 19, 2009 2:35 PM PDT


Here is the problem I had with my computer: One day the computer would not start (pressing the power button did nothing), so I bought a new power supply for it. Now, the computer will turn on, however it goes to the blue "HP Invent" screen and gives the following options: ESC - Boot Menu, F10 - Setup, F11 - System Restore. If I mash the F10 or ESC button after turning on the computer, it will take me to the Boot or Setup Menu, however after taking me to the menu it is unresponsive. If I mash F11 like I do to F10 or ESC, nothing happens. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide Happy

Here is the keyboard I'm using btw:
