Unable to access BIOS setup on old HP laptop

September 19, 2010 at 14:47:27
Specs: Windows XP
trying to revive an old HP Pavilion laptop that goes immediately to black screen at startup that just says "Press F1 to resume, F2 to setup", but pressing the keys does nothing. I see the HP screen for less than a second and hitting F10 does nothing. I'm trying to boot from CD but I'm afraid since it's happening so fast that it is a motherboard issue.

If you can't enter the bios, it's probably the mobo.
