Hello,
while formatting the computer using win xp cd , after 4 pernents of formatting , I did a cold boot . after that when I start it up there is just a screen of hp and it says press esc key for startup menu.

This does not surprise me - Why boot while a format is in progress ?
Depending on what computer you have there may be a PFkey assignment to restore to factory settings.
