comment Pavilion zv5200 graphics issues - Hardware or driver?
On your original HP driver link page, it has a link for "Previous versions available" with an older V4 driver. Have you tried that one? Also is there a setting in your BIOS that sets the video memory? Possible that the bios video setting doesn't match what the driver expects (so when it writes to what it thinks is video memory, it writes to system memory and causes random crashes). There might be a "reset defaults" option to verify that idea.

BTW Instead of building your own virtual image for each version of IE (and OS combination), Microsoft makes pre-built virtual images available at this site: modern.ie/en-us

comment Troubleshooting USB Boot issues
For the plop Linux CD, are you saying it ignored the CD boot and went to windows? Otherwise it should have booted the CD and shown a 2nd boot menu with USB. If the 2nd plop boot failed, it would just spin.

comment OS grub page not Loading
Yes, it seems likely if you can't get to the BIOS, that the HD is not the problem and should be fine.

comment Troubleshooting USB Boot issues
Have you tried using a Plop Linux boot CD? This boots from CD and loads a minimal Linux bootloader to memory, that allows booting from USB. It's useful for machines that aren't able to boot from USB sticks (like older laptops, unlike yours). The site is plop.at/en/ploplinux/usb.html

comment OS grub page not Loading
If you can't get to the BIOS setup, that the laptop motherboard must be freezing before it gets to the bootloader that would display the Grub menu. Are there any LED blink diagnostic indicators or beeps at this time? Best hope is that some motherboard component is partially connected (memory for example).

The progress of startx is logged in "/var/log/Xorg.0.log". If you want to debug what is failing when starting X, check this log file for hints.
