thank you for your reply.

no nothing at all,it restart normally.around 2 to 5 seconds in the beginning ,when i restart my pc,high speed fan from graphic card(it is normal)

again yesterday evening,i tried to repair the boot up windows,than restore system.

a message come up saying:the system restore has been successfully updated,

i restarted my pc,immediately the scan disk start,i left it on overnight.

to my biggest shock,when i woke up this morning,the same packard bell screen as the previous thread come up,

i couldn't go pass the screen,

F2,F8 nothing worked.

i know my friend how knows better than me in the pc.

He asked me to change the CMOS battery,than update the bios for my motherboard(asus p5n-E sli)

than he told me when i do these and still have problem,than the problem could me from the motherboard.

Disconnect all printers, usb devices, network cables make sure there are no disks in any CD drives and retry.

Only thing I can think as you have tried other things is, remove extra drives and any connected hardware, put it back to HP hardware setup then when starting tap F11 to do a HP restore
