Try run from DOS the fixmbr and fixboot command to fix any boot file errors.

Check the PSU as well.

Hope this helps!

Also check the boot order in BIOS. It may have lost it's settings

Do you have a known good HDD?

Re: dead hp pavillion dv2119tx 80 80

Try resetting your BIOS to default settings. Then if not, it appears that one of the Windows drivers is corrupt, invalid license, corrupt Service dependency.

You should be able to start in SAFE MODE and try disabling services that are not critical, and work from there.
