Try resetting your BIOS.

Unplug the machine and remove the BIOS battery on the motherboard and wait a minute and then re-install the battery and plug it in and fire it up.

If you need to change the bios, go into them on boot and configure the boot order to allow the cd drive, this should already be set by default but if its an old system then who knows how its set up.

Usually to get into BIOS you have to hit F1 or Delete, or F2 to get into it, it usually tells you on the splash screen on boot.

I want to upgrade my hpdv1000 pentium M processor whats the maximum upgrade allowed for this? i have upgraded it to 2gb ram from 512mb and 250gb hd from 60gb and its doin fine.

You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it.
The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to one of them...

PLEASE NOTE:
In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop:
(1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor
(2) the laptop chipset must support the processor.
(3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz.
(4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.

So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479

Cannot use intel pentium processor

you can only use socket 370 (Intel Celeron/Intel Pentium III) processors on that motherboard. Your maximum cpu speed is set by the bios.
