HP Win7 stock computer won't boot past splash screen or enter BIOS

Folks,

I have a Pavillion Elite HPE-270f in the office that refuses to boot past the HP splash screen and won't enter BIOS with either the F8 or F10 key. When the F10 key is pressed the computer responds by saying it's entering setup... but it never does.

Immediately before the reboot Adobe Acrobat was uninstalled and today's 3 Windows Updates were applied.

I can't enter boot order, either, to load off of a recovery disk.

Any suggestions?

dude, the manual/HP website says to press F-10 repeatedly to enter BIOS, just like most other computers. Nothing special. It works on all the other HPE-270f boxes here, just not on the one that's stuck.
