HP zv6000 won't boot

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.

Gateway MP8708 Won't boot past BIOS and won't boot into CD/USB/Safe Mode on XP - Blank screen with keyboard dead - Num locks on and wireless light


Somehow your MBR (Master Boot Record) likely got corrupted or possibly your hard drive went bad coincidentally.

Simply, you will start your computer from your Windows CD/DVD install disk, then when at a DOS prompt ( D:\ ) you will then type: FDISK /MBR (press enter).

Find your Operating System install DVD and start your computer with it, then follow instructions within this discussion:
Restore Windows XP MBR without Windows XP disc

Alternatively, review my search results for other instructions:
fdisk mbr windows xp Google Search

Driver requirement


There is a program you can find called "system restore" It will completely erase the operating system. Than you can do a fresh install and it will be like a new computer.

If you can find the "system restore" make sure it is burnt on to a disc. Or just find a disc to buy.

The disc will have to be in the rom drive before starting the computer.
