When I shut down my HP Pavilion 515n pc, a screen come on stating press F1
or F2. F1 takes me to the setup of the programs, F2 will let my WIN XP start up. Why is it, it will not just start up like it used to? Can you assist me with this issue?

You probably need to replace the battery on the motherboard.

Phil, can you be a bit more specific? This is not a laptop, but a desktop. I know absolutely nothing about any sort of battery on a motherboard??

Exactly! Thanks for jumping in while I was away from the 'net for the weekend ;) 


No problem. Normally I won't post on a topic that has already been given a correct answer, but in this case it seemed trivial and didn't want to leave the OP hanging.

Now, if we can just get the OP back, LoL!

Let's hope he turned the power off before going in! :D
