    It was the correct Bios as advised by HP. Is there any way to roll back the upgrade or even go back to factory settings ?
    Thanks

    Went back to shop today and the guy in the shop produced an e-mail from HP extending the warranty on my type of laptops. The e-mail was intended fot the USA, but appearantly it is valid world wide. Makes one think of dodgy batches. Anyway the shop took back my lap top and have sent it to be repaired. I guess HP will just replace mother board. So if anybody ther has a problem out of warranty, it might be worth cheching your serial number.
    Once again thanks for your help and advice and so long for a while from Ireland.

First make sure you have the correct file, then you need to make sure you know how to do that. A botched "flash" will ruin your entire system. also take out the battery and only use the power cord.

    no, not like your thinking. You must re-flash (upgrade the BIOS) to correct it. The only other way is to replace the chip on the system board and that needs solder. there is a DOS version -flash on the HP site. Try that one, you boot right off the floppy with that (I hope you have a floppy drive). See if you can boot off the cd drive with maybe your restore cd, if you don't. IT won't fix the BIOS but will get you started, (you have nothing when you boot now, except for power? Is that correct?

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Dv6000 will not startup ,Black screen , hd isnit being accessed


When you first turn the laptop on is there a HP splash screen? Can you enter the BIOS (normally by tapping F2 or Del key). If so then it would seem the BIOS updated OK. If when you turn it on there is nothing the BIOS flash probably went wrong and the machine will need a new BIOS flash chip installed.
If you can access BIOS then it may be a simple problem that the new BIOS reverted to default values. The most common issue would be the boot mode of the HDD. Look through the BIOS menus and there should be an option for boot which will say AHCI/IDE/Compatibility. Try changing it to another option, save and exit BIOS and see if that helps. Try this for each option.
Alternatively tap F8 continuously when you turn the laptop on and see if the advanced boot menu appears, if it does try selecting Safe mode with networking.
Finally to test if the HDD is actually working, try downloading Hiren's BootCD and boot to it. Then run some HDD diagnostics to see if the HDD is operating correctly.
Hope this helps,

New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD


Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.
