Hi everyone,

okay so I have a Huge problem here. First here are the computer specs:

Hp pavillion dv9000 enterainment edition,
Vista home premium service pack #1,
Intel duo core T5200 1.60 GHz,
2gb of ram,
32-bit operating system,
dvd-rw + light scribe,
Hitachi 160gb hard drive 5400rpm
nividia Geforce Go 7600

heres my problem: I bought this computer from a private party about a month ago, the thing worked great for about a week. Then all of a sudden when I went to boot it up it took a while during the intial HP screen then said "No Operating System Found". So I turned it off and back on again a few times, and finally it booted into vista. It didnt do it again for a few days, and now here I am everytime I go to turn on my computer I have to either tap it a couple of times, Unplug the power supply from it, or open the dvd drive bay and try it again. I dont know if any of what I am doing is helping it start up or not, but I do it anyway just in hopes to get it up and going. I have do a clean install on it in hopes that it was just the Master boot record, but with no changes. I have checked the driver software and all of it is up to date. PLEASE HELP ME, summer school is about to start and I need a computer for the class....

That is indicative of an imminent hard drive failure, or a loose cable. Please don't slap your computer anymore though. Electronics, especially heated electronics, are not made to withstand being slapped around, and you are likely to break something else.
