Specs: Windows XP Media Centre, not sure
A friend's Media Centre is plugged into the mains and will play DVDs - but when asked to load Windows it starts showing the logo screen and then goes straight into hibernation mode.

I can't seem to get it to go into Safe Mode.

It's a HP Pavillion DV9000.

It was working fine before I had to change the mains adapter because it was faulty.

Please advise what troubleshooting I should do ? At the moment the user doesn't have the original CD so I can't try that, and I only have CDs available for Home and Pro versions, not Media Centre. I'd like to get a CD (no need for a licence key as it's on the laptop), but I'm not sure how to.

No need to double post. It causes confusion.

Yes, double posting is confusing. But my two posts on the forum have completely different subject ines and body as they're about different computers with different booting problems. It's just a coincidence both computers run Windows Media Centre.

I hope to receive some replies soon as I'd like to know what could cause this problem.
