Start your notebook and start tapping the F2 key. In the diagnostic screen perform the hard disk diagnostic. If the diagnostic reports a hard disk smart test fail, then your hard disk is failing and must be replaced. That is the only way you will be able to return your notebook to useable condition.
If hard disk is ok I suggest you goto HP support Forums at

Hi,

If the battery of the HP laptop is not in a good condition, sometimes booting problems might happen. To remove any static charges accumulated in the battery, you would have to remove the battery and press the Power button for about 25-35 seconds. Then reset the battery. Even after this, if your laptop is not booting up then you could perform the battery calibration and press F8 key to boot in safe mode.

I would like a user manual for my HP desktop computer, or one that I can download and read it. Product No. BV574AA#ABA HP S2031a


Unfortunately the product info you have given is from your monitor. Don't worry though, here are the instructions to find your desktop's model.
1. Press the start button and type in dxdiag, one search result should show up, go ahead and open that . (If for some reason it didn't work or you're using a version of windows older than Vista, press the windows flag on your keyboard and the R button at the same time, so windows flag+R, and type in dxdiag)
2. Check under systeminfo and look for your system model (for me it's "HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook PC", so it would be listed as simply "HP Pavilion DV6")
3. Go to this site and look for your system model you just found. Click on it and it should allow you to download the manual

Shut down the computer.
Turn on the computer tapping F10 key on your keyboard.
You will see BIOS comming up.
Go to the option SMART and Run HDD Self Test.
If it passes then get another set of recovery disk for HP Pavilion.
If test fails, replace hard drive.

Disk error searching for boot rercord from CDROM not found


Hi rmirish,

The hard drive has built in SMART diagnostics to check itself to make sure all is well. If the SMART is showing status BAD then the hard drive is either either starting to go out. Your best bet is to try to backup any data (if you have any) on the hard drive and replace the hard drive.

Hope that helps,

Take care,

Michael

Clacking noise hard drive on HP Pavilion dv2700 Laptop


Laptop hard drives can be a bit louder than the new desktops and because you're closer may be more noticable. The sound from that youtube is about normal - this video is the sound of the heads crashing - mechanical drive failure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRj6dP1Pi1Q
Just to be safe - BACKUP your important data and if you don't have the install disks, make a set.
