It's probably that loading up the phone is the culprit. You should push F10 and try to restore to the checkpoint before you loaded the phone. DON'T do a full system restore at this point...just go back to the restore point before the phone.

There are also some diagnostics in the restore section you can try.

But i can't get to the restore it just goes into setup (F1) and will not go into Restore??

Usually software/driver issues wont interfere with your ability to boot past the BIOS splash screen, so it may just be a coincidence, sounds unlikely but the BIOS rom can't really be effected by changes in windows.

Try resetting your BIOS, either by entering set-up and selecting "return to factory defaults" or unplugging your system and removing then restoring the CMOS battery.

to enter the bios ,it should either be f2 or del key ,pretty sure its f2 with the hp
