Remove and refit the hdd and memory modules and retry

How old is it?

It’s about 5 years old. Was updated 2 years ago.
Have tried removing. Have tried the holding 0. Tried F8

Just a quick idea: Unplug it from the mains > Take the battery out > Turn it on > leave it for a couple of minutes > Then, either put the battery back or plug it into the mains > Turn it on again.

Thanks wee Eddie tried that. Still the same It only allows me to press F12 to go into bios mode. But don’t know what to do once in there.

Windows 7 or 10?

If it gets to BIOS can you see if it is detecting the HDD?
