Question about HP Mini 1000 Netbook
You either have an error with your hard disk or with the Windows partition files.
Some HP Mini Netbooks have a hard drive self-test feature. In order to check for a hard drive problem, turn on your computer and press the "F10" key during startup. This will open the Setup Utility. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Diagnostics" menu, then highlight "Hard Disk Self Test". Let the test run fully. If it reports an error(s), then you have a damaged/defective hard drive, and you will need to replace it by either contacting HP through their support site, or by replacing the drive yourself with a new one.
If the Setup Utility cannot detect your hard drive at all, then you either have a defective hard drive /or/ a defective SATA controller (this is what connects your hard drive to the computer). Unless you can connect your hard drive to another computer, it is very hard to determine which is causing the problem. You should contact HP if you are under warranty, or check in at a local computer repair shop if you are not.
If there are no errors reported with your hard drive, then either your hard drive only fails some of the time (and you should be able to boot into Windows at the moment), or there is a problem with the partition (section) on your hard drive that handles booting up. You will need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows in this case.
