I have a HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop, bought in July, 2006. When I press the power button, the laptop shows me the 1st screen (with the HP logo). However, instead of proceeding to show the Windows logo and such, it shows me a black screen, with a white square in the top right corner, and two words ("English" and "Deutsch", with flags that don't name the language). As of that moment, I get no response from individual keyboard keys (though the ctrl+alt+del combo works).
If I press the power button, it shuts down immediately. In the 1st screen, I can access two menus - "Bios Setup" and "Boot Menu" (F10 and Esc. I have no response from F8 or F11). This is the info I can obtain from those menus.

Due to the 5 years time, I no longer have the original CD. I appreciate all the help I can get.
