Specs: Windows XP
replacing OS on HP Pavilion m9040n. Ran xp disc and ran format. After format was complete, rebooted. Reboots to HP Invent Blue screen with options at bottom of window - then freezes. Cannot enter bios set up. Tried clean reboot, (unplugged for 20 seconds), same thing. There are no other devices plugged in except keyboard, mouse, monitor.
Any suggestions?

Are you using an OS disk that came with the computer? If so, do you have a different disk without all the extra crap HP puts on it?

If builders built buildings like programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.
