I purchased an HP dv2225 notebook in Feb. '07 and haven't had any problems so far with the Vista OS, and made the recovery discs immediately. Yesterday, I was trying to launch a game I downloaded from Yahoo Games and the screen went black with little white lines on it and there was no way to get out of it (esc, ctrl alt del, etc.) and i let it sit for a little bit to see if it would come out of it on its own, but shut it off when I had to leave for work. When I got back, I turned the power on and all the lights came on like normal and i can open the CD tray, but nothing happened and the usual booting sounds were absent.
I've tried to boot it with the system recovery discs, but nothing happens.
Thanks for the help!
I went ahead and had it sent in to HP since it is still covered by the Mfg. warranty. Thanks to anyone who read and tried to help!
