Computer not booting up

Specs: Windows 7
I have tried to boot my computer from the recovery disc but it will go as far as the windows and then it tells me there is a windows file missing and it will not go on to complete the recovery. Now I can not get into the computer.

I'm having the same issue
The machine boots only into recovery mode, where in the end only is stated that a file is missing. Same happens when you start using the Windows boot disk.

It's weird, since ha CAN boot, but doesn't want to re-install Windows, cause there is a file missing. That doesn't make sense.

Re #2.

If your issue on the other thread is the same as this one then you should have told us on there that you were trying to boot the computer from a recovery disk.

"It's weird, since ha CAN boot, but doesn't want to re-install Windows, cause there is a file missing. That doesn't make sense"
As ddraeg is doing a recovery then part of this automatically includes re-installing Windows, which I would have thought he did want to do.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

By "recovery disc", I must assume that you are using a factory recovery disk set that was either supplied by the manufacturer for your computer or made by you from that computer when it was new (If not, let us know).
Please tell us why you are using a recovery disk.
What is the problem with the machine that you hope to fix?
Have you tried other methods of repair first?
Did you make a Windows Repair Disk?
Do you have a back up of all of your important files?
Have you tested your memory with Memtest?
Have you tested your hard drive with the hard drive mfg's utility?
Have you monitored your internal temperatures (HWMonitor)?

Answer these questions and include detailed system specs so we can help you.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I don't see how a file can be missing and cause the problem when setting the computer back to like it came from the factory. I've bought and put in my computer a new blank hard drive and using the Recovery CD I made I installed Windows 7.
Their was a different time when my computer didn't accept the Recovery CD. While on the phone HP had me to unplug the computer from the power source and let the power drain. After that the computer accepted the Recovery CD.
