Can you boot into the Advanced Boot Order? To access this start pressing F8 as soon as you press the power button.

If you can access this, use the up and down keys to navigate to Safe Mode, then press Enter on the keyboard.

If you can access Safe Mode try doing a System Restore.

Go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

Click on System Restore and then click on Next for the two following pages.

On the page titled Choose a Restore Point click on a date prior to your current problem and then click on Next. To see earlier restore points click on Show Other Restore Points.

On the following page you will have the option to view the programs and drivers that will be deleted. To go to the next page click on close and then Next.

On the following page click on Finish. You will then be prompted to confirm that you want to start the System Restore by clicking of Yes. This will immediately restart your computer to finish the System Restore.

After the computer has restarted click on Close.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Take the battery out and use the charger to power it up, see if that works.

Please try the following:

Download NTBR_CD.exe and create a bootable CD.

* Save the file to your Desktop and double-click it. This will create a folder named NTBR_CD.
* Open the folder and locate BurnItCD. Launch it by double-clicking it.
* When BurnCDCC opens, click Start - the CD tray will open.
* Insert blank CD and click OK.
* The tray will close, burn the image then eject the disk.


Run chkdsk.

* Boot the affected computer with the new CD.
* Once presented with the boot screen please hit <ENTER> to boot from CD.
* After a warning screen there is a keyboard language options screen - press <ENTER> to leave it at EN-US.
You should now be at the Tool options screen.
* Type 5 and press <ENTER> to go to a command prompt.
At the command prompt type the following bolded command then press <ENTER>

tools\ntfs4dos\chkdsk

You will be prompted (in German) to press Enter.
* Press <ENTER> to start the check disk utility.
Check Disk will check all attached drives and attempt to correct any errors.
Please make a note of any errors found or corrections made.
* When it completes type "menu" and press <ENTER> to return to the tools menu.
* Type 6 and press <ENTER> to quit, then Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.


Allow the computer to attempt booting normally and let me know the outcome.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I don't think that will work, dc3, as he isn't even getting a BIOS screen on boot...so booting off a CD isn't going to happen.

I'm guessing a hardware issue, possibly mobo.

If it is the mobo then you should send it back to HP for a repair or a replacement.

<<...is thius worth fixing or just buy new laptop?>>

You are the only person...who can decide the answers to your questions, IMO.

Part of "fixing" involves determining what might require such...I don't think you've done that...nor do I believe you are likely to do so without taking your laptop to someone for a hands-on look.

I'll move this to Internal Hardware, since it doesn't seem to be a Windows issue.
