IF YOU STILL CANT FIND THE RECOVERY PARTITION.. CONTACT HP THROUGH THEIR SITE AND YOU CAN ORDER A NEW SET OF RECOVERY DISKS FOR YOUR SYSTEM . OR PREFERABLY JUST INSTALL VISTA AND GET THE DRIVERS FROM HP.COM

    no the best solution would be to get those trojans out .. why dont you try a latest antivirus program and get it updated so that the trojans are removed from the system ... if it still doesnt work then reformatting is surely the best option .. however do consult me before reformatting ..as if it is not done in a proper way the trojans might not get deleted.. hope your system gets normal soon

    BEFORE REFORMATTING I WOULD SUGGEST USING MCAFEE 8.5i ANTIVIRUS .. INSTALL OT AND UPDATE THE VIRUS DATABASE AND THEN GET YOUR WHOLE SYSTEM SCANNED (MIGHT TAKE A LOT OF TIME BUT WILL SURELY WORK).. AND IF THE PROBLEM STILL PERSISTS CNTCT ME WE WILL HELP YOU REFORMAT IT

When you turn it on, watch the screen carefully. Many times recovery is contained on a small partition of your hard drive. When your computer begins booting, watch for a short message that says something like, "For recovery press F11". It could be another F key. You will only get a couple seconds to choose it. Choose an option that does a full restore which will reformat the drive.

My HP Compaq 6735s.I got it as a present from my


I hate Compaq since HP bought them out yrs ago. Anyways a few suggestions.
1 unplug it and take the battery out and wait say 5 minutes put it back in and all and turn on. Still nothing? Try leaving the battery out and just plug it in and turn on..... No? Put any disk in the drive and try both with battery and plugged in and without battery.

I've had this irritation with my Dell a few times. I turn it on and nothing but a blank screen. If you have anything plugged into it such as phone or other usb devices unplug them. they do sometimes interfere. The dvd/cd drive Did the same to me even when I first bought my unit but after a while of just leaving a disk in the drive it quit. I asked about that problem myself and it's nothing to worry about. If the problem does persist I would suggest running a few system scans updating drivers and scanning for spyware trojans malware virus' and so on. these can cause such problems
