I have an HP Pavilion dv1000. I put a new hard drive in the laptop (model and part number are correct). I have the operating system CD in the CD drive.
When I power up the computer, I get a screen with the HP logo and the options of changing the boot order (esc), entering setup (F10), or booting from LAN (F12). After this screen appears for about a second, it goes right to a black screen with the blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner. From here nothing works.
I have tried changing the boot order to boot from the CD first, but that doesnt work. I ran the HP HD test, and it passed every test. If I put the old hard drive back in the laptop, it loads properly. Any suggestions?
