Hey guys, long time no login :P

I had a question and maybe you guys have some insight into this. Trying to use the restore disks for his HP Pavilion dv5000 did not work, because once the software was finished installing, the computer would get stuck in a loop and restart every time it saw the xp load screen appear. I figured this was a fluke, so I tried to install Win7 on it, and it comes back with a "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation." Next, I tried a freshly burned Ubuntu 9.0 disk, and that one is the most strange, because no matter what you do at the screen, it will restart after about a minute or so. Any ideas/requests for more info are greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
