Have a similar problem with my HP Pavilion. It has been running hot but being my first laptop I didn't think anything of it. Then last night it came on with a black screen saying HP Invent and press escape for menu. That didn't work.
Took it into Staples this morning, first thing I got was why didn't you buy extended warantee? Laptop was exactly 1 year old 2 days ago.
Anyway to make a long story short, the guy messed with a few things then said it is probably the motherboard since there seems to be a lack of communication on the machine. He took the hard drive out and said they could create a backup for $100. The motherboard would be at least $300.
This could be your problem also, hope not.
