Hi,

I have an HP Pavilion DV6700 Vista Home Premium. A few weeks ago the disk drive was not recognized by the device manager nor the BIOS. I tried to fix by removing the filters using regedit but that didn't work so i left it as it was working fine otherwise.

Today the machine crashed and attempted a reboot. Lights go on for about 3 seconds and then it starts over. Pressing <Esc> and F-10 seem to freeze the computer with the lights on, allowing me to hold down the power off button and shut it down but all other function keys do nothing. I have not installed any additional hardware and i am running the Norton suite. Any advice would be appreciated.

Oh - lastly, I removed the hard drive and same thing when I power on. I also removed the battery and booted off the power cord - same thing.

Thanks for any advice.
Rgds,
Mark
