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?
