First of all, excuse my bad English.

When I started a notebook (HP Pavilion G6), I got the following information:

Error 501 (BIOS). Press ENTER to continue.

I keep pressing ENTER, but Windows will not start. I do not get it and I am no expert at all, but it is my brother's PC and he is going to send me to Mars if I do not repair it.

  • Is this an external keyboard? If not, try an external keyboard. Otherwise, See you in 2040 – djsmiley2k in darkness Jul 26 '17 at 9:10
  • What message do you see exactly? What happens when you press Enter? What happens when you don't and just wait? – gronostaj Jul 26 '17 at 9:10
  • djsmiley2K, I tried with an external Keyboard and it didn't work. I tried rebooting it and now I have a completelly different message: start Windows by pressing TAB (Menu). But I pressed ENTER. And it beeped for a Minute, and then it shut down. It is not the battery, I am using the cable. I guess I am really going to see you in 2040 djsmiley. – Neve Jul 26 '17 at 9:12
