HP Pavilion AMD Phenom-X4, 64-bit quit on me.

Motherboard M278-LA, PEGATRON, NVIDIA Graphics, SATA 32, 500GB HD, CAVIAR BLUE. Was using normally and it quit. It tried to reboot a couple of times but never did.
Following advice I bought a new OEM SATA Drive and a new Vista OEM OS. Installed the items but never could get it to boot up. A friend of mine said it needed the BIOS Flashed and I let him do it but that didn't help. Any idea at all what I should do next?

Someone said I needed to install a piece of software prior to installing Microsoft OEM equipment but I can't find any info about it.

Help appreciated,

When I try to boot I get this onthe screen.

Boot:

I wait a while and nothing happens, so I hit enter and get this.

Booting:

It just hangs there, stuck.

So I tried to enter setup by holding down the delete key but it just takes me back to where it shows

Boot:

How could I check for a bad BIOS chip?

Thanks,

Doug

Have you visited the HP support page for that system?

HP Pavilion...is only part of the system model data.

AMD Phenom X-4...is the CPU.

It will facilitate matters if you supply the complete model of HP Pavilion system you have.
