|This is a friend's computer that is stuck at the initial boot screen. The screen displays the "Toshiba Leading Innovation" logo in the center, the "Insyde H2 Bios" logo in the bottom left and the Intel logo in the bottom right. This is the first thing that appears when the system is powered on, and it never progresses past this screen.|
There is no option to enter BIOS setup (even pressing and holding F2 or F12 doesn't seem to make any difference). With this in mind, the system will not load an OS or a boot disk of any kind. It makes no attempt to boot from any source.
I am curious if resetting the BIOS with the RTC battery and jumpers is a possible solution. If so, does anyone have an idea of where these two are located?
I would appreciate any suggestions.
