SOURCE: start up problem
It sounds like your Hard Drive may have went bad, My dell C640 did the exact same thing, I was able to get it to work a couple of times by taking it out and shaking it a little its kinda hit and miss if you can get it to work that way, But if you can save all your files to a storage device right away so you don't loose it all, and thats if you can even get it to fire up for you. I am almost positive thats the problem. You can get a new one from the manufacture or off ebay. Hope that solves you problem, The reason it won't boot off the install disk is the hard drive is not working anymore, Alright take care If you need help finding or how to write me back

I'm not completely sure on what you are exactly asking here, but I'll do the best I can. If you have the Recovery CD, you need to boot from the CD and run the Recovery. When you go to do the recovery you will have two options, the normal recovery or the destructive recovery. If there is nothing important and everything can be wiped, run a destructive, but if you need everything run the other one. If you do not have a Recovery CD but have a Windows Vista disk that matches the version on your computer (IE: Windows Vista Home 32 bit is on your computer and you have a Windows Vista Home 32 bit disk) and you DO NOT need anything saved, just reinstall Windows. There is a product key for Vista on the sticker attached to your case. If you have neither, then you can probably get a new recovery disk by contacting HP (since they bought out Compaq). If you can not get a new Recovery CD, you will need to go out and buy a new copy of Windows Vista.
