I think the problem is with DRAM(memory) it is either not properly mounted or it is not working already. If it is not working already the best that you can do is replace it with new one. If you do have more than one DRAM you should check which one need replacement, you can do that by plugging the new one together with the existing one. You can identify which one isn't working anymore because the older that is combined with the new one will not boot the PC and the good older one when combined with the new one will boot up the PC.

    P.S. when replacing consider if it is DDR, DDR2 or DDR3....DDR3 is the latest and also speed of the DRAM should be the same as required by the motherboard..

If you know how to dis-assemble the parts of your PC, then try to clean connectors, display card, memory. The CPU mounting... be careful to remove the cooling fan then move the cpu retainer arm back and forth that is to regain better contacts of cpu leads. if you have an spare keyboqrd, try replacing it, if you have sa defective keyboard controller then you will have failure to boot sometimes. after cleaning the PC pheriperals, put it back and reset your BIOS/Cmos and configure as you neede, basic fail safe setup.

Wont read HD

It could be that the the HDD controller on the motherboard is gone, that's why it does it with several HDD. By the way go under the BIOS and check the Boot sequence, make sure that HDD is first, because pxe error occurs when you select to boot the computer through a network device. If it doesn't find it, that's what it shows on the screen, it can find the MBR.

Wont boot even with factory cd

When you swich on the laptop push f10 to get in to bios, there is a feature to test the HDD(there was on a hp laptop few days ago), see if that says anything useful (that should take a while), and try to change the boot sequence at boot options, first should be the cd/dvd rom than the hdd. This way your pc will try to boot from cd first, if nothing than Hdd is next.
Than you should be able to boot from your CD, if not than open up your PC case and chack the cables, take off the power and data cables and reattach them, sometimes it does the trick.
Worst case scenario is that your HDD is dead, if you got warrenty left than use it, if not than buy a new one from the local store or order one from ebay or zipzoomfly, just check what type do you need, the size is up to you, even 500GB drives are quite cheap nowdays. You need to open up your pc and check what type of cable is going to the HDD it can be IDE or SATA to know for sure what type of HDD you need.
