I have an HP pavilion dv9000 laptop with Vista Ultimate 64 bit OS. When I start the computer, I get no options to enter bios or setup options. I can't even boot from a CDRom. I get about 7-8 columns sometimes less which have different colors (some black,white,blend of color) instead of the black screen with the setup options. After a long delay on this screen, the Windows loads and everything works fine for a while until it crashes. I have tried everything I know in my limited knowledge but I can't figure out what is wrong. I thought it might be the bios so I tried to update it but it says I don't have this kind of bios which confuses me because it is from the HP web site for this dv9000 model. Anyone have any ideas for a fix to this issue? I was going to do the recovery and repair options for windows but I can't get to it.
