Question about HP Pavilion dv8000z Notebook
Could it be the Boot (Sector) Virus? I was having the same problem, and a co-worker was able to remove the Boot Virus.

Sounds like it's either bad memory or else a heat issue.

Your windows might be corrupt. If you have a windows xp cd, boot to it.
Press R for Recovery Console. It will take you to a command prompt screen. Press 1 to select the C: drive. It will ask for Administrator password. If there is any, enter it. If there is none, just press enter.
Next type in "chkdsk c: /r" and then press enter. Leave it to run through the processes and when it completes, type EXIT and press enter.
Now boot to hard drive and see if it will boot up. If it still doesn't boot, get back to me!
Thanks and good luck,
