Re: lap top hp notebook series
One of 3 things have gone bad, either the hard drive and/or motherboard and/or the drive ribbon cable. First try removing the hard drive and reinstall the drive and try booting the laptop, if it still does the same thing, then it is time to send to the repair center. BPCS

I would do a complete operating system reinstall.
The M15x uses a program called Dell Datasafe Local Backup for factory restores. You can access this program from launching the application from within Windows (it is on the Start Menu), or by using the F8 Windows Boot Options menu. Press F8 after the iniital POST screen (Alien Face), but before you see the Windows logo on the screen. There should be an option to repair Windows, which will launch you into a recovery mode that allows you to restore the system. This option is available even if you have uninstalled the Dell DataSafe Local Backup app from Windows (I did, as its constant polling causes stutterin in Blu-Ray playback). Good luck!
Either press the "Reset Button" on machine. hold down the CTRL-ALT-DEL all at once. Remove/Turn Off Power. Or if at desktop from the "START" button and click on the Padlock at bottom and choose it from there. OR press CTRL-ALT-DEL and task manager will pop up... then choose reboot from the Shutdown Tab.
okay what you need to do is if you have the system restore cd use that , it will reformat your lap top even if it cant reboot just put in the cd when you start up the computer and it will restore everything you may lose alot of things but atleast your lap top will work after , if not then Reply to me at Jonk3y at Aol.com and i will gladly help you with your problem
Open the Windows Task Manager (in WinXP) by pressing and holding down
CTRL-ALT-DEL. In the Applications tab, highlight each program and click
the End Task button. Once the Applications tab is empty, close the
Windows Task Manager. Then, launch AOL again. (If you’re using an
earlier OS, such as Windows 98, press CTRL-ALT-DEL to open the Close
Program window, and close every program except Explorer and Systray.)
Some very old Sharp PCs require a Setup Diagnostics Disk to access BIOS.
Shuttle - Glamor G-Series, D'vo, Prima P2-Series, Workstation, X Mini XPC, Surveillance
Press F2 or Del on startup.
Sony - VAIO, PCG-Series, VGN-Series
Press F1, F2 or F3 after turning on the computer.
Toshiba - Portégé, Satellite, Tecra
Press F1 or Esc after powering on to access BIOS.
The following companies are either closed for business or no longer manufacture or support mainstream computers systems so verifying the following BIOS access information is nearly impossible. I have included what I could dig up for anyone who might be interested: ARI / ALR / AST (Advantage) - Press the Ctrl+Alt+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Del keys. Cybermax - Press the Esc key. Tandon - Press the Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys.
