Lights come on but nobody's home.

I'm working on a neighbors Laptop and things have gone from bad to worse. I think it has to do with Power Settings but can't figure out how to fix it. The Laptop will power on every time you push the power button, but it only boots up about 1 out of 5 times. When it does boot, it works but if it goes into sleep or hibernation it won't come out of it. I don't see anywhere to adjust these settings in bios.
It will not re-start. I went through the procedure of a factory restore with 4 CD's and it did not restart...now I get NTLDR is missing, press control alt delete to restart. It wouldn't restart before this either.
Here are the Specs: hp pavilion dv2000, amd turion 64 x2, 1600 mhz, 1gb ram, BIOS F.3D
