Correct (although strictly speaking I guess its loaded to RAM, as opposed to a physical disk). Symantics aside though, run that and lets see what it finds.

Well, after doing a chkdsk on an other PC and then booting this HP to the CMOS setup it recognizes BOTH the DVD and harddrive. I will come back and edit this post shortly.

Gaaaahhh....
After leaving the CMOS it hung before even trying to boot. So I F10ed into the CMOS again and now it shows no HDD or DVD!

Doing another out-of-body chkdsk. I might have fibbed, the HDD LED was blinking up a storm.

Now I've tried two other hard drives I took oot of other computers and this stupid computer will not get by it's pre boot screen, ie. the press F10 for setup, F11 for recovery, ESC for boot menu

this HP is crap...thinking a bios update...gee, how will I do that. I cant boot to a DVD RELIABLY.

Sounds like the MB is bad, not any thing new for a HP laptop, I guess I can't complain about HP products as they do keep me busy since I am a certified HP tech

It's a desktop. Gonna try removing partitions on one of them and see if windows will reload. This unit is less than a year old. What is the warranty Mr HP tech?

I see that you say you have a p6329f, I am not aware of this model for the US, the p6329de which I believe was sold in Germany and the p6320f would be the US version.

Have you added anything to the system since you have had it?

First thing to do is look at the MB for any leaking or buldging capacitors on the MB.
Link to pics of leaking caps: Capacitor plague - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If there are no leaking caps then remove all the ram and then power on the system (note: disconnect the AC power and hit the case power button a couple of times before removing/ installing ram to discharge the capacitors otherwise damage to the ram may occur), you should get a quick series of beeps, this will indicate the BIOs and CPU are good. Now place one stick of ram in and try booting up (try all sticks one at a time), if you can now boot up then you have either a memory module that is bad or a possible bad memory slot.

Post back with the results and we can go from there.
