Hello, Thank you ahead of time for taking the time out of your day to help me with my problem. Laptop information: HP Pavilion dv2000 AMD 64 Athlon x2 Windows Vista I am attempting to troubleshoot my laptop, it will not boot past a blank screen. I have tried the following troubleshoots already. 1) Connected external Monitor. 2) Performed a hard reset. 3) Disconnected the battery. 4) Checked the RAM connections 5) Checked the CPU connection. 6) Checked warranty with HP (expired of course!) So far, the furthest I got was when I started it up ONCE, it said "Operating System Not Found" which was flashing. It never happened again, just once. I read on a forum that the AMD motherboards in this computer were recalled but I cannot find that forum again, nor can I find any relevant recall information on HP's site. Anywho, just wondering if any of you have any ideas for me to help resolve this issue. (If possible, I would OBVIOUSLY like to retain the files on my computer. I am a realist and realize this probably is not possible, hahaa) Thank you ahead of time, Newman4185!
