Re: comp won't start
This is because a file from windows is missing so your computer will keep restarting on its own. this means that you will have to acquire an operating system cd to re-install windows and that should fix the problem. I had this same problem recently.

Try to restart the system and then keep tapping F8 key before windows logo appears. You will see a list of boot option, in that highlight the "start windows normally or normal mode" and press ENTER. Your system will boot in the normal mode.
When was the last time you were able to use your computer? Did you installed any software recently in your computer? Try pressing F8 on startup and use the Last Known Good Configuration. May be that will help.
was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.
Unplug all additional devices, printers, external drives, network cards, etc. If it won't boot into safe mode, you will need a windows disk. Load the windows disk, and if it's Vista or 7, get the advanced repair options, and do a system restore. If it's XP, just do the computer repair. Windows vista also has a startup repair you can run from the Windows disk. We need to know the operating system to help you
windows is thnking that you have a problem with the system
start windows in safe mode and troubleshoot and see what the problem is if all else fails you might have to to a system restore
or take it into a tech and see what they think
hope this helps
If your Usb port works, then the mobo is working, so possible graphics problem.
Try booting up in safe mode(normally pressing F8) on boot up then highlight 'start windows in safe mode', to see if Windows will load with only minimal drivers, if so restart again, pressing F8 again, but this time highlight 'start windows with last known good configuration'
Doing any of these 2 things can be done in any order, either last known good config first or safe mode.
