Looks like I'm going to geek squad after all.

Short of formatting and bringing the system back to factory settings.

It turns out there was what amounts to a Silent Recall of nearly all HP dv-series notebooks (by "silent," I mean HP never told the public, and, according the the computer store manager, it takes some pushing to actually get HP to act on the recall.) There is a problem with the motherboard, and an update for the BIOS is supposed to fix that. the manager is going to restore my data from my hard drive, then send it to hp to fix the motherboard problem.
And it won't cost nearly as much as going to Geek Squad. They would have charged me 70 bucks just to tell me what the manager told me for free!

Make sure you have backup in hand and verified.
With that we can at least make sure of no lose of your important data.
Please keep us informed as to the progress and results.
We will continue to monitor this topic for your updates and good job finding the problem.

The manager said it would take two weeks for HP to fix the problem.

Two weeks to flash a bios.
Normally takes about a minute but I guess with shipping time and the amount of systems they probably have to work on, that makes sense.

In all honesty most won't do the backups either.
They normally say that is your responsibility.
I'm glad to see there are some who are there for their customers and not just for the money.
