    I started my computer (Compaq Presario desktop 2gb ram, 140gb hd, 2.2ghz cpu, win 7 ultimate) a few days ago and it would show the HP splash screen and then go black with a flashing cursor in the upper left corner. I shut it down and restarted and went to setup and reset the defaults and it started. Now every time I start the computer I have to reset the defaults for it to boot.
    I couldn't find anything similar to my problem, I looked.
    I hope I put this in the right spot.
    Thanks.

    Sounds like your systems CMOS battery may need replacing, is it showing the correct time and date?

    In your Bios you should be able to find a list of voltages, see what it shows for the battery (vbat).
