    Hello all. Im working on my friends pavilon and im out of ideas so im posting here to see if any one has any suggestions. So heres the problem.

    My friend bought this as a display model about 3 months ago and besides having to reformat the system to get rid of all the store installed junk it worked fine until about 2 wks ago. All of the sudden the computer started randomly booting to the bios screen, the sound stooped working, and whenever the computer was connected to the internet random screens would pop up. It got to the point that the computer would only boot to the bios and then lock, before that you had to renter the time and date and save and exit. I was able to fix that by replacing the battery and resetting the bios manually from the jumpers. Unfortunatley the operating system side of things continued to get worse(random restarts, freezing, more windows popping up, etc) so i ended up reformatting the system with the hp recovery program. This appeared to fix all of the problems and i was able to update windows and reinstall my friend programs. Unfortunatley the computer starting to boot the bios again and the screens on the internet are becoming more frequent.

    thanks in advance for any suggestions.
