Got a HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop thats sick.
It boots up loading the desk top however it goes no further allowing no use of any keys, if you hover over the task bar you get the hourglass, only thing i can do to reboot is to hold the power key, ctrl/alt/del dont work.
I have tried booting from cd however it goes no further than loading kernels etc and gives a message of missing files and corrupt files, so if I must re-install XP it wont allow it from disc?
I have just managed to get it to start in safe mode however it wont allow me to use system restore, I can choose restore points but I click next and it goes no further?
Not sure if i can use any software while in safe mode to try repair, or can you suggest a way to re-install XP, not much on here I will lose.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
