Make sure that system is set to boot from DVD drive first. Sometimes during the reinstall it calls for a restart but it may be trying to boot from the partially installed OS.

Run Memtest to see if your problem is a bad memory stick.
Run hard drive test using utility from the hard drive mfg's site.

Did you try to use the built in recovery partition (see online manual for details on this), unless your original drive was replaced or the recovery damaged it, your system was built with a recovery partition and the factory restore feature would wipe the drive and restore Window to its factory shipped condition.

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

Thanks all, i have tried to do the recovery but it seems the recovery disk is bad and i have tried many option i saw but it seems not working. I dont know what to do. And when i saw the recovery disk package that my friend brought i saw the same error code on it, maybe the when they try to make the recovery disk, the system gave the error. i am now looking for a new window 7 OS to install afresh. SO i need an original window 7 OS to install with the key. Please if you have kindly help me to put my friend laptop back to working.
I will appreciate any help ok.

Thanks

First Test the Hard Drive and the Memory. Without testing you could be wasting a lot of time and coming up with the same errors through different media if the problem is hardware related. The problem could VERY possibly be RAM or HD related. Test first!!!

Pressing the f11 key during startup on a computer with an HP factory image will start the system recovery process even if the prompt is not displayed.
this should allow you to complete a full restore to the day you bought the machine, it will however delete all files on the C;/ drive, so backup first.
if F11 fails
reboot the computer and start tapping the F10 function key as soon as the HP/Compaq logo appears on the screen. That should also give you a screen with recovery options.


i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
