First off, want to say I'm a big fan of your site. A number of your tutorials have proven useful and I'm always confident I can find a solution here.
But for this problem I'm completely stumped and didn't know where to start looking.
On my PC laptop I can't get it to boot up properly. I've been having issues with the XP Security 2011 virus that's been doing the rounds recently and followed your guide on removing it and it worked, but ever since I've been having these odd little issues with my laptop.
Audio driver decides to stop working, wireless card goes on the fritz. A restart solves these issues so that's no big deal, just have t deal with it until I sort it out.
But now, when ever I restart my PC laptop, I get the HP Invent screen, and then after that I get a black screen with a flashing cursor and nothing more, I can't get to the Windows logo screen or anything.
I hit escape at the HP Invent screen and go to the system diagnostics screen and ran the Runin Test and Startup test and passed both.
So.... any help guys? Kind of stuck in the water on how to go about repairing this. Any advice or directions are appreciated.
