    Windows 10 Eduction

    Using F5 to turn on laptop.


    For some reason I have to use F5 to turn on my laptop. The regular ON/OFF switch doesn't work.
    It's a HP Pavilion G6.

    Also when it starts (before the Windows logo) I get the following message:

    The HP BIOS application selected is corrupt or missing. Please install the application and try again.
    BIOS application error (501).

    However, I can continue to Windows after I pressed ENTER.
    I read on several forums to turn off HP Quicklook 2 in the BIOS but this option is not present for me.

    I have already reinstalled Windows 10 and tried to update the BIOS but without luck, the error persists.
