    I have a 2 year old HP Pavillion DP6000, where the CPU failed. Fixed that, but now on start up does not recognize any hard drive installed and won't boot from CD.. I tried multiple SATA drives with some intermittant success where I can get to the Windows did'nt start correctly so run recovery message, but then goes blue screen on me.
    Any ideas?

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    How did the original CPU fail, or what made you think the CPU had failed? Its possible that if the CPU failure was due to something like a PSU blowing, then it has actually damaged alot more than just the CPU.

    Hi Tanis,
    Actually, I must correct myself, the CPU fan failed, and when I went to repair/replace, their was hardly any grease at all. Performed CPU tests and reported everything OK. I did get an I/O error once on boot up. I've tried to change the SATA connections to see if it was a faulty connector, but it will recognize the CD unit, just not a HD. I tried to boot from USB but no luck as well.
