Question about HP Pavillion ZV6000 Athlon 64 3500+ 15.4in WideScreen w/ 512MB/80GB/DVDRW/Flash Slot (PCLHCA6435512WWD) PC Notebook
Could be a software/driver problem or a hardware problem. Try booting into safe mode by pressing the F8 key when the Windows screen first appears. If you are able to get to the desktop then the problem is most likely with a driver or some software application. Check for any installed updates or driver changes. Also check for spyware or virus problems.
If the computer won't boot into safe mode either, then the problem could be hardware related. Reseat the memory and try to post the system. If you have more than one stick of memory, try booting Windows with only one stick at a time installed.
Make sure you power off the laptop and disconnect the AC adapter before removing or installing memory.
Other causes of the problem could be a corrupt Windows file or a defective hard drive, or a heat related problem (bad CPU fan or blocked cooling ducts). One way to verify the hardware function is to boot from a live CD like Knoppix or Ubuntu Linux. You can find out more information on either of these operating systems by Googling for them.

As it boots up depress the F10 or the F 8 key till the bios comes up, there should be a restore feature. Try to restore computer to original configuration...
