One of 2 thingsIt sounds like a bad OS or failing hard drive to me.
One of 2 thingsIt sounds like a bad OS or failing hard drive to me.
 
noThis netbook should have a recovery partition. To use it press ESC at startup and select System Recovery. If it's still there and works then it should work.
If that doesn't do it, then it sounds like the recovery partition is damaged or it's going to be the hard drive. Try reloading the
OS from the recovery media and see if it holds. If it does, it's the recovery partition. If it gives you any problems then the drive is dead.
This netbook uses Win7 Starter. Get a Windows 7 32-bit ISO from a place that grabbed the Digital River ISO and download it. Once you do that run it through a tool that does a ei.cfg removal. I have found it for you. You can get it [https://ibanniebtechsupport.wordpress.com/2011/01/15/windows-7-isos-and-ei-cfg-removal-utility/|here].
I have a ISO I did this to but this is easy. Mine came from Digital River.
The ISO needs to be 32-bit to work. This will not work on a 64-bit ISO as Starter doesn't come in 64-bit.
If you have a XP version of this netbook, then get Windows 7 Home Premium or install Linux on it. Use Xubuntu on this. Ubuntu is too heavy for netbooks.

dead HDDNo matter what you choose, you will need an USB external DVD drive. You can find one [http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SE-208AB-TSBS-External-DVD-Writer/dp/B005KQ0S8S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1334317890&sr=8-2|here].

This laptop/netbook(they are the same thing to me really) have a recovery partition, press ESC and select "system recovery", and try this

If that is no help, replace the HDD in it, and get a copy of windows 7 home premium 32 bit, you need it, the key is for starter, not home premium

here is a drive(I picked a 160GB, there are other sizes on this
Should your hard drive too)

trust me, you don't need the support,if you do, pay per incident(i tell people to buy the builder's when they get rid of XP or Vista)

Here is the HDD guide if it's the HDD at fault

[guide|4023]

If that fails, there are some resets and little tips I find work at times with HP laptops

Remove the battery and press the power button on the unit to drain excess power from the netbook, and this may solve it, but this is not necessary most likely, i am including this in case

All else fails, motherboard is going
be bad, I found a cheap working one

note you will need to reload windows after a motherboard swap, the OS "marries" the motherboard, and the key is no good after

If you cannot find a motherboard cheaper then this, buy it, otherwise this thing may just be worth a visit to eBay for parts, just pull

All else fails, motherboard is going bad in this thing, and as much as I prefer repair, netbooks are NOT worth trying, unless it's REALLY cheap!
