I have an HP Pavilion dv6500 laptop. It has been running good for over 4 years. Couple of days back, windows VISTA stopped booting. I see starting windows frozen logo and nothing appears afterwards.
I have tried the following:
1) Run memory and hard drive test (comprehensive) - Both passed without issues.
2) I can run ubuntu from a live disk (usb).
3) Same thing happens if I try recovery using (f11) - starts and freezes at loading files
4) I have tried changing RAM (even though RAM test from bios did not detect any problems, same with memtest86)
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
