f2 doesnt work and f1 is way over my head

what can i do pls? is it fixable at home or do i need take it to shop
its pavilion 7805 hp machine with windows millenium

many thanks

It's likely that the CMOS settings need resetting but you will need to look in your motherboard manual and check this out - or ask a friend who is computer savvy...:-)
