Cannot even get my daughters laptop to boot into the bios setup, F1, just hangs after showing going to steup, F12 doesnt work...just hangs on the selection line
I have tried holding F1 at bootup, get no post beep, get no memory count. it just hangs at the starting setup message
System does not try to boot from CD or floppy either...
I have taken out the memory, HD, CD Floppy, reinserted them, no change.
the bios is phoenix 4.0, release 6.0 (95-99), I was going to update the bios but cannot even get anywhere near the setup screen, and will not try to boot from floppy or CD.
Im stuck...and not sure what direction to go at this point

Welcome to the forum!
Try removing mini-PCI card and see whether that makes a difference.

I'm afraid that you're looking at motherboard replacement...
