  1. So I was starting my laptop when suddenly I found this error :

    (BIOS Date:06/08/09 16:37:07 Ver: 1.40
    CPU: Inter(R) Core (TM)2 Duo CPU P7350 2.00GHz

    Speed : 2.00 GHz

    00USB mass storage devices found and configured.

    Checking NVRAM....

    Not enough space in Runtime area!!. SMBIOS data will not be available

    Press F1 to Resume )

    I pressed F1 but it didn't resume. I waiting for that NVRAM check but its not getting any results and there's no loading bar to show me the process.
    So cannot use my laptop now...

    Any idea how to fix it ?

    PS. it hard-boot last time I used it because it was out of battery but I didnt install any programs or software..
    And I cannot open the Bios setting menu to edit anything
