... see if you can post those white words, try to time it [press] the pause <key> when they flash up again (if it'll let you)

... did you have an operating system on the pc or was it formatted?

... try tapping <F8> <key> @ bootup "without" the cd in the tray

... do you see a menu? ... if so select "safe mode" .... post back

... does look like a memory anomaly doesn't it(?)

... your other thread post mentions graphics card problems maybe a link there!

... also you'll need the sata driver (extract from):
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software7/COL19692/pv-51944-1/sp35039.exe

... which is offered @ early installation <F6> <key> prompt

... or slip streamed into installation package: http://www.nliteos.com/guide/part1....
