I have a H P Pavilion dv5 laptop that has windows 7.. I cannot access windows 7 or any of the recovery methods.. I've tried a system restore disk i burned from my wifes computer and it didn't work ... I cannot access anything except the systems configuration, boot options etc... Tried tapping the f8 key.. f11.. still no luck. At startup the HP logo comes on for a second then goes to a black screen with a flashing bar in the upper left hand corner of the screen.. Can you help me solve this problem please?

Even before doing the above, does the BIOS (Setup) even detect the hard drive? If the BIOS includes a hard drive diagnostic you could try that one first.
