Specs: Vista
I have a 3 year old HP Pavilion laptop, model #dv6700 running Vista. Two week's ago I had a tech reformat my hard drive becuase of some problems I was having with my computer. He also switched me to Firefox because IE was giving me other problems. It worked fine for a week. Now when I turn it on the lights go on and off and I hear a clicking sound..I tried taking the battery out and plugging it into another outlet but still no luck. Can anyone tell me what could be wrong.

Do you see anything on the screen at all?

Sounds like your hard drive is failing, or has failed.

nothing comes up on the screen and the only way I can shut it down is to hit the F10 key, that makes the lights stop going on and off and then I am able to shut down.

No, the screen does not light up and the only way I can shut the computer off is to hit the F10 key. Then I can shut it off by the power key. Thanks for your help.
