Laptop turned off during factory reset.
Hello, a few hours ago i decided to hard reset my hp pavillion g6 laptop, it got to 2 percent then turned off, now it wont start and when i press f11 on boot to get to recovery screen, clicking reset again just turns it off, also i dont have any restore points so thats not an option, i dont have a cd either that came with it as it came with preinstalled windows 8. I was just wondering what i could do to fix my laptop. Thank you for any answers.
Thank you for your answer, i did what you said but the laptop turned off halfway through, now i have a boot device not found. Hard disk (3F0) issue when i boot up and anything i do leads to an unexpected power off. I dont get it my laptop would barley ever randomly turn offby itsself before i tried to factory reset. Any idea on what i can do?
Okay so i turn it on and the fan gets loud but gives out cool air (not hot air). Then it turns off, i think thats to do with the heatsink not being attached to other components properly. Correct me if im wrong. And then also when it does turn on for the few seconds it shows the Boot Device Not Found
Please install an operating system on your hard disk.
Hard Disk (3F0).
Now once i get the power issue fixed i just want to find out how i can reinstall windows on my hard drive. Since i have no disk and also cant get to the recovery option because of the corrupted files on hard drive. Please help if you can. Thank you

Hmm, when did you buy the laptop, and what make, model, and year is it?
[update -- edit]
Did you make sure to clean the top processor before you applied the paste? Did you make sure to clean the heatsink block as well? Also, how much thermal paste did you apply? It should only be a very, very thin layer. Anything more than that will cause inefficient heat dissipation (i.e., heat transfer to the heatsink/pipe/fan).
Thank you for all your answers, i'n the end i opened the laptop back up and applied thermal compound instead of silicon grease, this made the laptop not turn off anymore. As for my corrupted hd with no recovery partition and no os on it, all i did was put windows 8 on a usb and booted it. I didnt know this but if you have windows 8 preinstalled on your hd then it doesnt ask you for a key, but youl need to have the right version i.e. 8/8.1 64/32bit. I hope my solution can help someone else too as it took me 5 hours of sitting down and working on it to completely fix.
