The bios setup utility will not start up when I press F2 as indicated at bootup. The Pavilion N3210 notebook will boot into Windows 98 from the hard drive fine, but there is no access to the bios setup screens. Also, the intial screen indicates I can press the escape key to change boot sequence. When I do this I get the boot sequence change screen, but my choices will not be saved. What could cause this? An HP disk utility indicates there is a problem with the [pri mast] partition, but repartioning, reformatting etc does not change anything. Is fdisk even a solution in this? Any help is appreciated.
