Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
When u say setup screen I assume you mean the bios setup screen;which probably means ur hard drive is corrupted.
Make sure u have a os cd in drive and turn pc on to boot from disk,if you get a message in the black screen saying no operation system or no drive,turn off pc and remove hard drive ,check for dust and bent pins and replace making sure its seated(fitted)properly.the action of removing hd and refitting usually does the trick due to small particles of dust which act like conductors and can cause shorts.
if u dont see that message but have the option to install ;go ahead and install in next screen(blue setup)sys checks for exististing os ;if it finds one it asks to confirm install or repair,you can choose either one,both options take about the same time.though I always prefer to install clean (new) copy and delete partition,create new partition and format before install.
