When I power on my N3150 notebook it gets to the 'Pavilion' splash
screen and goes no further. I haven't added any new hardware. I've
tried removing the battery as well as disconnecting AC power for
several minutes.

Anybody experience the same problem?

I would then try the start of the machine with the Windows XP or restore CD
and see if that will get you going. You make a repair via the Restore
I would hazard a guess that something is not loading properly and I would
opt for the full restore back to factory specs.

HP "Makers of Junk Computers" and "Terrible Support"...But your experience
may be different.
