I am trying to fix my mom's laptop. It's a dv6000 series hp. It was running slow and having problems. then I took it home and it would boot poorly and I did a system restore. it now wont boot. I tried to wipe the drive and reload the os. The pc will not give the option to boot from disk. I had the same laptop series and tried to swap the HD, my laptop wont work bc of the following. It was having issues with the graphics card. I had my ex(not at the time bf who works in IT) do a reflow and gave him the instructions on how to do it as I had never done one do a reflow to the graphics card which is on the motherboard but he failed to listen to me when i said DONT OVER HEAT IT... (it is better to underheat it and have to reheat it then to over heat it and make it unfixable for good) and I heard a POP and turns out, YEP! I WAS RIGHT!!! (FRICKING DUH!!) he overheated it and screwed mine forever!!! so i swapped my HD for hers which was compatible and it still wont boot so wasnt her HD. now it still wont boot(hers) and i still cant boot from a disk, any help??? I desperatley want to fix it as i am a CISCO ACADEMY student and single mom, my mom is single and much older, we both cant afford a new pc for her even thought i now have a new pc, but i9t's my mom and i know someone out there can give me an answer or help me trouble shoot this. I am not far along, but I have experience in classes with hardware(not much) and am in cisco acad and with oracle certs on the way also. this is deeper in the computer hardware area than i have experience with. please help.
