    I am posting this so if anyone else may have the same issue, maybe this will help.
    Computer is a HP Pavillion Laptop Model 5320, just over 3 YOA. Problem surfaced about 3 weeks ago, on startup, blue screen full of white lettering-just a flash-then black screen. Tried all known and reccommended methods to reboot, all resulted in the same blue screen with writing-just a flash, too quick to read anything-then black screen. Took it good local PC repair shop, diagnosis-the hard drive failed. New HD installed, new install of WinXP, all is well. The computer was 10 days out of extended warrantee when failure occurred. My luck. Cost of new HD was about 90$, also had RAM increased, total with labor and tax was 360$. This was a 1200$ PC when new, so it was worth it to me to have it fixed.
