Hi. Here goes. I've got a hp laptop that just keeps restarting when switched on. (Don't ask if it's vista/7 etc. I haven't got a clue.lol) I've tried the old f8 safe mode but all it does is nothing and a bit of beeping. Any help to get this silly things working is much appreciated :) thanks.

count the exact number of beeps on start. 1 long 2 short for example

that will give us a clue as to why its not starting.

Does 13 sound right? Lol. Comes up black screen with hp/intel/f9 f10 and f11 in bottom left corner. Then black and round and round in circles. :/
