The laptop will turn on fine it will run and have a while to enter the BIOS if necessary. Its a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. It will go to a black screen where it says "We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose last known good configuartion to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due toa power faiuure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose start windows normall."
It gives me 5 options 1. Safe mode 2. safe mode with networking 3. safe mode with command prompt 4. last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked) 5. Start Windows Normally
I've tried each one the first three will show a bunch of text and reset while the last two will just reset the computer.

5. Under System failure uncheck Automatically restart.
Another cause for random reboots is that the computers processor is getting too hot. To check this, enter the computers bios during boot (usually by pressing Delete, F1 or F10 when the computer just starts) and there will be an option about the computers temperature (often under "PC Health").
U can have registry error.Run a registry cleaner reg in out .
First restart the computer and tap f10 key on keyboard to enter bios, and check wethere the screen flickers or not you can even try to tilt the screen and check as the drivers doesnt works in bios screen ... if the screen flickers then it is a hardware issue .. if it doesnt then log on to safe mode with networking by pressing f8 as the notebook restarts and then go to device manager by typeing device at the start search and the uninstall the video driver and then reinstall it from hp.com support and drivers ..issue will be resolved if not then do a bios update from hp.com, support and drivers.
FIRST OF ALL CHECK THE DEVICE DRIVERS ... IN DEVICE MANAGER.. UPDATE THE DRIVES FROM http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html ( PLZ PUT THE PRODUCT NO OF UR PC AND SELECT THE OPERATING SYSTEM ) FOR THE WEB CAM .. DO A BIOS DEFAULT ( KEEP TAPPING F10 DURING START UP .. ONCE IN BIOS TAP F9 AND YES AGAIN TAP F10 AND YES TO GET OFF THE BIOS )
