Laptop Cuts Off/ Fatal System Error

Hewlett-packard Pavilion dv6-1230us note...

Okay, so here's the problem:

I have an HP dv6000 series/ model dv6910us laptop.
I hadn't used the notbook in about 2 weeks because I was moving to college so it was in my car for a day. When I decided
to boot it up everything worked fine...except the internet. It wouldn't pick up a strong wireless signal or the LAN. I
am sure they both worked because my suitemate's worked in my room. So, I played around with settings and it still didn't work.
I then decided to use the System Recovery on my laptop. Right in the middle of system recovery, it just cut off. No warning or
anything, it just cut off while the recovery was in process. I then turned it back on (after about 5 or 6 tries) and there
was the black screen (white writing) which stated that 'BOOT MGR is missing'. I tried to run a diagnostic on it and it would only cu
off. Then, I ordered the recovery dvd from HP and it still wouldn't work so I bought a new hard drive and ran the dvd's with it.
I got through the recovery and it launched FBI GUI and kept stating that the computer would shut off itself and restart but it
wouldn't so I ended up turning it on about 7 seven times.
Each time that I turned it back on, the FBI GUI would appear on the task bar and installations were taking place and new icons
would appear on the Windows 98 style desktop. Finally, it got to a point where it said to insert the recovery disk again. I did.
It then said, FATAL SYSTEM ERROR on a light blue screen. Now, I am basically back to square one at the black screens again.
The computer won't boot. Sometimes there is a black screen with just a blinking cursor when the recovery dvd isn't in the
cd drive. Any clues? Any pointers? Please help!

Are sure that the battery is fully charged? I have a friend with the same laptop and the battery life is pretty poor after 2 years of use. Does the charger/ac adapter have a good connection?
