Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
After turning power on, the HP logo flashes on the screen, followed a short time later by the Windows XP logo, followed by a single pointer that lasts on a black screen for 10-15 seconds. The screen then goes black and is unresponsive to any input. During all of this the HD light flickers on & off (even after the screen goes black). I've tried F8 with various settings, but no luck. My guru friends have tried reseating ram, emerg. dics, checked fans, ac adapter, etc., all to no solution. Suggestions?
I would suggest checking your hard drive to see whether or not it has a bad sector on it.

This is usually caused by a software error ,imcompatability or conflict .you need to uninstall the last software..if was done via win update it could be near to impossible to determine what was last installed requiring you to reinstall windows ..unless its bad sectors on hd reinstall or repair os and it should sort prob out.
when you reinstall os; system will not find/detect wireless,blutooth,possibly modem and possibly video until the programs/drivers for them are installed..this is normal so download the software/drivers and save them to disk(saves a lot of headaches)
