I have an HP Pavilion 2000 and recently, when I turn it on, it won't get past a black screen with a blinking dash (it would go past an HP logo, though). I have tried a system restore with f11 but it didn't work; I've also tried taking the battery off and putting it back on.
Does anybody have any advice about this?

Reinstalling would be the next best option, if you're using Windows Vista or higher, just run the install process and don't format and all your old files will still be saved on the hard drive in C:/Windows.old
