Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I own a HP Pavillion zv6000 running on XP. The computer won't boot. It starts, but it won't go past the windows xp screen. I get the windows did not start successfully screen, but cant start in safe mode or anything. I have the recovery disk, but I don't know if the disk is working. I went out and bought an external drive, but can't get it to boot from there either. What is wrong? How can I wipe my computer clean and start over? thanks in advance.
If you get to the Windows splash screen, but no further you have a software problem, perhaps something easy. But if you can't get into safe mode, then you will probably have to reload your operating system. I can't tell why the OS won't load from your external drive. I would try to see if you can boot from the external on another computer. You don't have to run the whole program, just see if it will boot from the disk. Also, if you have access to another computer, see if you can download and burn a Ubuntu Live disk. That way you can test your external drive on your machine and eliminate everything but your PC hardware.
