Hi, ive tried all the basic stuff (turn off and on, unplug charger, unplug battery hold power button put battery back in) but it just says the HP symbol and then the loading icon and then a blank screen. Its not completely black so I know the video card is fine. Ive tried plugging it into a moniter but still the same thing. Please reply

Hi Somethingwizard,

Is it possible to enter BIOS. If it is, restore it to its default settings. Is the mouse active on the black screen? Do you have a Windows installation DVD? If you do, try booting from it. If it boots normally, you may be facing a hard drive issue. If the laptop is under warranty, contact the manufacturer's support.
I leave you an article from the manufacturer's knowledge base. It may be useful to you.

Hope this helps
