I have a stupid question.
My computer worked under French language. Is it normal the Bios has a system configuration with English?  :ummm:

Yes, I  believe so.  The US vendors buy the BIOS from a second company some of the time.  When they do, it is rare that they have a multilingual version.  If I recall from one of your screenshots, the BIOS was not an HP BIOS.

On the other hand, if I understood what you did to get it to start responding, you may have set it back to its most primitive state.

What's the model number?

Yes, I think it's quite normal. The OS is highly configurable but the BIOS must cope with much less program memory, thus manufacturers tend to save on languages and other 'unnecessary' stuff.

And no, the question isn't stupid :winks:

Ok, thanks guys!

What do you mean by "primitive state"? For BIOS only, or for all computer including hard drive?

For model number, wait I find a magnifying glass...
15-r103nf
I tried a search with that I don't remember when, but found nothing (but I guess the fact I'm sinking in everything isn't perceptible :psycho: Sorry, I need to laught a bit)

So, it's an HP 15 Notebook PC.  You'll find more search hits if you use that.  The page (at least in the US) for it is:

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-15-r100-notebook-pc-series/7234951/model/7649550/drivers

There are manuals in French, but, at a quick glance I cannot tell whether they have a French BIOS available.

Fortunately, I fighted against itchy fingers taking a book :psycho: But for the moment it's impossible.
Anyway I know it's better indeed if I can save the comp. Specially if I save the W8.1 part  :witch2:

Glad to hear that you've behaved responsibly.   :countmein:

You can probably find a restore disk to get W8.1 back on that computer  but that will involve saving the data to another disk, replacing the hard drive and restoring the data.  I believe what Chiron is proposing will only save your data from the presently not-working machine.

I know, but it's always a first step. My priority stays to bring back some datas in my hands.
For another disk, it will be when it will be possible, but not before months.

Just out of curiosity: as you learned to loathe heartily Win10 in a few days, why don't you get hold of a Win8.1 installation DVD and install that on your new laptop?

Like this at least you might work in a familiar environment while you wait to see how much you can recover from your old system...

Because for the moment they haven't W8 in stores, and for some reasons, I don't take things on the web.
I have a last shop to check, but here we crawl between W10 or W10. And a lot of Office stuffs.
(and until next month maybe more, money will be short).
If I have occasion to find a W8 or W8.1, I will be happy for sure. And before to do an install I'll come by here to ask advices :yes:


Latin was a great language for what I remember from school.

Of course you must learn the new thoroughly, it's the only way to decide advisedly if you want to keep it or...  :dustbin: :tearlaugh:

Yes, I tried conscientiously the brand new steam-powered MS-W10 car they put on the market lately. The one that every so often runs to the workshop on its own for repair without asking. The one that sends to the manufacturer everything about where you go, who steps in and when, how many red lights you run, and a lot of other things that will help improving the service. The one that will automatically kick out potentially untrusted passengers.
But unfortunately the old car stereo wouldn't fit in, nor would the DVD player, nor the good old navigator - however the baby seat would cause no problem.
Maybe had it been a little faster and had it allowed me to decide where to go, I'd have even bought one... but like this it occurred to me that perhaps I liked better my good old Ford XP on petrol and stayed with it.
Not because I didn't learn the new. Quite the opposite actually...  :grin:

For my last year in Latin, yes it was worse than French. I never understood for why I lose it in 2 months :panic:

When I had the computer, it proposed in end of july of start of August to update toward W10. I refused, but the pack was between stuff downloaded on computer. And after the W10 pack was in standby on laptop, tada! McAffee temporary antivirus became a virus.
I cleaned everything, but yes, updates weren't the priority after that.

Advantage with W8 is you can choose when you update, and what you update at the end. Just with code names of packs, it could take more time on this party - but worth the case.
With W10, I can't choose if I want or not it check for updates. And that is one of the huge CPU problem.
