my laptop is a compaq/hp and its system is windows xp. When I press the on button, it goes to a loading screen with the hp symbol in the middle and "F10=ROM based setup" at the bottom. This is followed by 8 loud beeps. I'm then brought to a screen with a list of conflicts and "F10=ROM based setup" again at the bottom. If I press F10, I'm taken to a completely blank screen that continuously flashes between a lighter and darker black. If I just wait the same thing happens. Please explain and help resolve this problem! I can't even reach the welcome page!
