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...

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...
