Sound like there is virus in the software that you download from web.
Try go BIOS and check if the HDD still there?

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

I downloaded a hard drive deletion piece of software on to my pc so i could wipe a laptop i am selling. on restart it shows up as an operating system and windows xp wont start. it gives me blue screen...


I think the software has made your window files corrupt or it has deleted the window files. To solve this problem, I think you need to do a fresh windows installation. In the process of the installation, you could save the files on your hard drive, that is if they are still there.

Best wishes.

Black screen after loading windows logo


If you buy new then you don't need to install Windows XP
If you buy used then you need to reinstall all drivers

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.

no its a software problem.....I believe you are using Windows XP. can you tell when it loads or starts to load it stops at the windows loading part only does it go near the boot screen ie; XP loading........like that or straight to blue screen. Ive seen this before its not a hardware its a software. Have you got the installation disk XP if so.....insert it in the CDrom and start the machine up from scratch. Allow windos to go through the rig ma role of installation until it cant go no further. Press "R" for console go to the DOS line and type chkdsk /p allow windows to repair the problem when done remove the disk and start up again.....if Im right it should go pass that nagging "loading windows screen"...I hope it works for you, you'll be elated.
