Can you get to BIOS by pressing (& hold) F2 right after power?

That isn't good at all. Time for a new computer.

Maybe, if the battery & power supply are OK. Do you really want to spend $$ on it when new laptops are so cheap with a lot more performance than the Atom CPU/Intel video chip. My battery failed & I probably will not replace it at $30.

This is a link for a refurbished MB at $80 Dell Parts, Refurbished Laptops & Used Computers - Discount Electronics

This is more than I would spend. Makes me wonder how much my Mini 9 is worth w/o a battery & I know it works plugged in.
