Press F2 to get into your BIOS then restore it to factory defaults and hope that it boots. Chances are you may have a bad hard drive or hard drive controller. If that is the case then it is time to take it to a repair shop.

You have to hold down the F10 key as soon as your turn your computer on. This sounds like an IBM computer though. IBMs take you to a restore utility before you go into the BIOS. We have all HPs here and I only know of them going into the restore utility if you press F11 when it prompts you to.
