I have an hp pavilion dv6000 laptop that gives me this error 0x000000f when starting up. So I tried to reinstall windows using the recovery partition and that makes it to 11% recovery and then freezes and wont go any farther.

I have tried memtest and Ive tried booting with only half the memory but it still doesnt work. Any ideas?

I would guess your hard drive is faulty; as you're already doing a reformat you can just buy a new drive! There is software which will test it for you (I won't recommend any as it's off topic here), just search Google for SMART test or hard drive test.
