Press windows Key third key on bottom left and press R key at the same time. Type last known good configuration in box and hit run. This should clear it or you can set it back to a known last configuration as by date and time you knew it was working properly.

SOURCE: presario v4000 will not boot up
i got something that might work but for you guys, i had a similer problem.
what you do is do a full format and load windows xp, pref sp2, then connect your laptop to the internet via an ethernet cable (larger lookking phone cable) and go onto hp's website and select your model and ONLY download the drivers for every piece of hardware that is relivent to you and once you've done that install the drivers you downloaded one by one and restart where applicable.
When restarting go into the bios via the F10 key as the system starts up and change your boot order to 1: cd rom 2: hdd 3: doesn't really matter here onwards.
after installing all your drivers and and configuring your bios restart one final time and everything should be fine. But i have experienced on problem that happens upon start up for me, it won't boot off the hdd. solution - have a windows operating system cd in your drive when booting (only tested with xp and vista discs) it will say press any key to boot from cd, don't press anything and once it goes away it won't boot from the cd and will then continue to boot of th hdd. go figure.
reformat and install xp (vista will work but complicates things with some drivers)
download drivers and install one by one while restarting where applicable
change bios boot order via F10 key to 1:cd rom 2:hdd
if any problems load a windows os disc (xp or vista) and where it says 'press any key to boot from cd' or something like that DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING. afterwards it will boot into windows
good luck all

First, if you can run hard disk drive diagnostics, because many times a windows failure is based on the Hard Drive failing. If the Hard drive checks out, since you cannot access the Windows enviroment, you'll likely be re-installing Windows and loading drivers again. I hope your data is already backed up, otherwise it may be gone

Tips for a great answer:
Hello, doing a "last known good
configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:
1. Make sure your computer is powered down.
2. Turn your computer on and immediately
start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot
3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to
select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.
4. Press Enter on your keyboard
and cross your fingers.
