Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
My advent is frozen switched it on and there is a black screen that says intel to one side and pheonix in the corner. at the bottom is a grey stripe that says press f2 or f12 nothing happens. there is a blue bar that shows it is 3/4 way through a job but even detaching the power does nothing
Repeatedly tap the F8 key when booting up. This will bring you to a black screen. Chose the option to use the last known good configuration.
please do not forget to rate me.

Your laptop should have been supplied with a Utility CD which contains a copy of the user manual and all the drivers. There is also a copy of the drivers on the laptop itself, you can find it by browsing to the c:\applications\drivers folder. Finally you can download some of them from The Tech Guys website.
The Wireless LAN card uses a Ralink RT72 chipset so if you're struggling to find drivers then the "USB(RT257x/RT2671)" ones on the Ralink site should work - http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php.
Memory Upgrades This laptop has two memory slots. One slot is accessed by removing the cover underneath the laptop (see the "Bottom of Laptop" section below)
