After you formatted it, everything was removed from the drive. You need the install CD now. What program did you use to try to partition the HD?

See if it will get to Safe Mode by tapping F8 during start-up (probably not).
You could try XP repair but if you screwed up the partitions that won't work either:

You are probably heading for either a reformat and XP install (if you have an XP disk), or HP restore if they have provided a facility either on the HD or with a CD.

If it goes that way you might be able to get your data onto a flash drive using a Linux Live CD, but if that doesn't see the HD you are a bit stuck.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I doubt this will help but just in case something has got stuck in the motherboard chips try this:

Remove the mains plug (if it's a laptop remove the main battery too). Now hold the power on/off button in for about 20 seconds. Restore everything and see if that helps.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Reset the BIOS to defaults.
