Try formatting a new version of Windows into the system if you don't have much to loose on it but you try this
switch off the system
remove the battery
press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
insert the battery without releasing the power button or plug directly to power source if putting the battery back will be hard for you
Then release the button and switch on the system

or google "how to clear black screen"

If you forgot Windows password, you can create a Windows password reset bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset your lost or forgotten Windows password, i have created a bootable CD with the tool Windows Password Breaker and reset my administrator password successfully.

means that it cannot read any information from the first boot device.
normally your hard disk..
however if you have plugged anything in like a penstick maybe, then it tries to boot from that.. so check you simply have not left a penstick or usb device with memory in (mobile phone). in the good old days it was usually somone had left a floppy disk in the drive...but I assume you have not got one of these in it???
if thats ruled out and thats your error. go into the bios (F2) I think but it tells you when you first switch on press [whatever] to enter setup...whatever it is press it.
look for the menu that tells you about your hard disk...MAIN
should look something like this 2pagescouk.jpg

ignore the red square
but see where it says 1st drive and then a model number...check that there is a model number there if not, theres probably something serious wrong with your Hard disk take it to a repairer or if your confident replace yourself and reinstall windows and all your drivers...plus you have probably lost all the data on there...hope you made backups
if there is a model number there, odds are the Operating system is corrupted, a repairer may be able to save your data (documents pictures) and reinstall OS or repair it. but thats not guaranteed.

You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!

Dissemble the laptop and find bios battery. It is smaller than desktop bios battery. Usually covered by plastic wrap. Remove it and replace with new one. Observe the polarity of battery carefully.

Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

If you go into bios and change the boot sequense to the cd rom first than the c drive than you should be able to just put the cd rom in the drive and turn off the computer and restart and when it turns back on it should say pressany key to boot from cd rom
and to be perfectly honest with you as long as this is a bootable cd rom you should just have to put in thecd rom and reboot the computer and it should come up just like i said earlier ok?
but if not do like i said and change the boot configuration so the computer boots from the cd rom first ok?
I hope that this has been very helpful for you
best regards mike

try this out,
remove the battery from the back of the laptop, and power it on without the battery inside first, then if it comes up, change your battery. if it doesnt, kindly let me know so that I can tell you what next to do.

some laptpos can be connected to tvs or external monitiors in which case it's possible to select different configurations -i.e. only ext. monitor, ext monitor and laptop or only laptop. for some reason, my unit took a while to acknowledge its default setting of laptop only. unfortunately, i no longer recall with which button or menu this is selected, but i think it's one of the hot keys.

ok, take the battery out and leave it unplugged for a few hours.  Only plug the ac adapter in after.  Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.  Does it still do it?  If it does work, then chances are your mobo has bit the dust or you have knocked loose an internal charging part.

You have the wrong sound drivers installed - I had the same problem with my Evo N410c.  Go to
HP's website and download the ADI Soundmax Audio Driver  and your sound will play at normal speed.
