If anyone has a way with laptops, PM me, email me or just reply to this. I have an HP Pavilion that I can't get to boot. My last attempt to boot from the install CD led me to reformatting the HD (long version) and got an error message that said something about not being able to reformat because of a HD error.
I have had problems of late bringing the machine out of hibernation. It would get 80% through the startup and then give me an error message that I had to destroy the recovery data and start over (reboot).

I'm sorry can't help you. I have about the same problem. Though I can boot, but lappy works fine for about 15 minutes or so and then starts to make funny sounds. Now I know the problem is the harddisk so I had the chance to back (almost) everything up. But I'm afraid I will have to replace the harddisk. Luckily it's all within the warranty, so.. I hope you will get yours fixed too. GL!
