Okay, so I have an HP ZV6000 that did not have a power brick. I go to a local place, and see that they have one for $45. Not wanting to spend that much for no reason, I go get the laptop, and plug it in and test the power brick before buying it. The laptop pops up to an old installation of XP. Cool, I'll repair it when I get home. When I get home, I boot it up with the repair CD (which it had booted from not 10minutes before), and nothing. Just a little blinking cursor in the top-right.
I've tried every BIOS setting there is, reset the BIOS, and I've tried booting from every CD and thing in the house. No CD-ROM boot, no HDD boot, and I don't have an external floppy or the ability to network boot.
1GB of RAM, ATi graphics, Athlon 64, DVD drive, 100GB Hard drive.
Please help me.
