I tried starting my computer this afternoon and it would not boot it would go through the initial start up wher eit says press f2 for this f11 for that then comes a messege that says "windows is loading files..." then it shuts off and restarts again going no further.. when i put in my recovery disk or try to load the internal recovery it gives me a black screen with the messege"the file is possibly corrupt. the file header checksum does not match the computed checksum." i can get into the pheonix bios set up utility but thats it . my computer is a hp pavilion dv6500 now i figure it was some type of virus and imagine i will end up having to replace a hard drive but i'm trying to avoid going that route if possible any help at all will be greatly appreciated

The situation has been resolved, it seems i had a bad virus that killed my HD and fried my RAM (as close as i can figure anyway) after installing a new HD and new RAM the computer is working fine now thank you anyway
