hp6**1 Sys Config Data Read Error and then nothing

By Hlpe ·
I was given this laptop because it doesn't work so its a decent machine and with a little effort . . .
Stops in or just after hp logoed black screen. Doesn't allow to enter any of the F# except f10 for set up. I have restored defaults, run the hard drive self-test per hp web site. I have removed/reseated ram and hard drive. Still getting this error.
supposedly running vista but I never get that far.
also during boot, power seems to go on and off - hear the fan, don't hear the fan. lights go on, lights go off.
hp site says hit f1, f2, f3, etc.
screen just goes blank and it stops.
F10 used to work, but now says entering SETUP indefinitely - nothing happens.
Next steps??
