Question about Computers & Internet
Well, it sounds like your re installation windows wasn't complete. When you re-format your Hard Drive, you're erasing everything from it, that includes software and your operating system. If you used recovery disks to perform the format, they should have immediately started to unpack windows files onto the hard drive afterwards to allow you to go through the set-up process as if it was a new machine.
If you're not seeing a windows logo whatsoever, chances are your windows installation did not complete successfully. That can be caused by several reasons, most commonly due to recovery disks that are incomplete or damaged.
I would suggest re-trying your installation of your operating system using your recovery disks. If it doesn't work, you can call 1-800-hpinvent and ask them to send you a new set (usually about $15). Try those, and if you still can't get your system back up, I would have to say it's looking like a fault on your Hard Drive. If you take the unit to a Best buy store, they can tell you if your Hard Drive is functioning properly with a series of tests.
Hope that helps.

Have you upgraded your system in anyway since first purchasing it? I had this same problem after formatting because I had installed a new graphics card and more RAM on my compaq machine. All I had to do was remove the additions before reformatting.
