hp 2000 notebook won't boot

Have tried all the diagnostic tests on board. Everything checks OK.


When you turn on power button, the hard disk spins and the fan comes on; however, the screen immediately goes blank with a flashing cursor in the top left corner of the screen. No matter what I try, the result is the same. The operating system (windows 7 home premium) will not boot.

Re: hp 2000 notebook won't boot

Is your hard drive recognized in the bios?  I assume it is because I believe you have run the hard drive test?  Your computer is not seeing your operating system on the hard drive.  One reason may be that the bios was reset from AHCI to IDE? Did you recently have to reset the time and date? Did you have a power problem? If you find the SATA Type or mode, tell me what it is set for in the bios.  This probably is not the reason so next is to take out the hard drive and attach it to a desktop machine and have someone that is familiar with computers attach it for you and run a check disk on it. Is this machine under warrantee? Just asking just in case but I think it is a software problem with the hard drive.

Re: hp 2000 notebook won't boot up to turn on screen
