My wife's HP-CQ60 lost the HD. I put a new HD in and attempted to restore using original HP restore disks. CD-ROM spins but then shuts down. Screen is black. I gave up and got new copy of Windows 7. Same problem. CD drive spins on load and then stops - like it is waiting for me to input some answer. Screen is black.
I was wondering - - all my drivers etc are gone of course - - how the heck to I rebuild? Maybe if I can solve the CD problem I can go back to install disks?
Thanks - I'm ok with this stuff but am currently stumped.
