I noticed a bios update for your laptop from the hp site

It is dated 8 of 2008 and it may or may not address your problem. I would try this first befor I would replace your screen.

SOURCE: cannot start up the laptop
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.
Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

SOURCE: won't boot up on first try
Whenever you do get it booted into windows, run the command prompt and in there run "chkdsk /f". That will check your disk for errors and repair them. Yours sounds like a boot sector problem, chkdsk should be able to fix that.

Thank you for contacting Fixya. This is Anil.
I understand that your computer is infected with Malware and now the computer is not booting to normal mode.
I can uderstand how frustrating this could be and I assure I will try be best to resolve this issue.
From the statement I understand that it may happen due to hardware failure, BIOS mismatch or due to static charge. Let us try the basic troubleshooting. Turn Off the Computer, remove all the devices attached to the computer, the power cable and battrey, now holdon the power button for 15 secs (make sure adpater and battery are uplugged) it will drain out all the static charge. Now, restart the computer and keep on tapping F2 (some computers "DEL or Delete" key), you will enter to BIOS setup utility, press F9 (click "Yes", if you are prompted) and then press F10 (Click "Yes", if you are prompted), it will restart the computer to Normal mode. If still it is not booting to normal mode, then we have to perform a full system recovery & it is a distructive process as you will loose all the datas on the computer. To do so, Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.
I believe the above resolution should resolve the issue, however, if the issue still persists, please contact us. We will be glad to help you.
