Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Hi there- my husband has a HP Pavilion dv 1000. Recently when we start it up, it takes ages. Sometimes it just sits there with a black screen and never starts up... Anyhow- we are guessing that it's a virus- but none of the 4 programs that we have installed have found anything, and neither of us are computer masters.
So- we are thinking that our best bet is to reformat the machine and start over. BUT- we're not sure if the computer has start-up CD's that we'll need.
So- can anyone tell me if this laptop needs start-up CD's that we need to get? The last thing we want to do is start to re-format it, and then be stuck with a useless machine!! Thanks loads
