    Hi there

    i have a hp pavilion dv 6000 laptop and it is playing up bad.. it started having a few problems when i restarted it, and something prompted me to run a chkdsk because something was wrong when i restarted it, but i didn't know what that meant so i left that, and scanned the computer, and a few system 32 things came up but did not appear as threats, but under 'change'.. when i shut the computer down and turnit on again, it goes to a black screen where it asks if i want to start it in safe mode, two other safe modes, the last known good config. or start windows normally, but for all these, it goes to a blue screen for a second and then reboots itself.. if i press f10 at the first screen and check the hard disk it passes everything, and if i boot from the xp cd, and try to repair it, it says that it does not detect a hard drive..

    any help with this would be much appreciated..:confused:

    Check all your cables
    also test your ram using memtest
