I have a HP Pavilion dv 1000 laptop that I had installed a new hard drive so then I can reinstall windows. But when I turn on the laptop it will not leave from the the very first screen where it says "HP invent", where you can choose to go into the bios, change boot sequence or boot from LAN. I would try to get into the bios and it will just stay on "please wait". I would choose change boot sequence and it will say and freeze: Phoenix NoteBIOS 4.0 Release 6.1 Copyright 1985-2003 Phoenix Technologies Ltd.

Thank you in advance for any adivce.
