Together with my laptop I got a product recovery cd, which I used. After starting the laptop, I pressed f12 and selected the cd/dvd in the following window. So far so good, windows started to load the files. Now here comes my problem : After loading the files, nothing happend. There was a black screen during a long time. I tryed it a few times, but everytime the same problem.
Do you use self created DVD?
I don’t know what the problem can be but somehow before HDD activity starts everything blocks. Maybe the HDD is troublemaker.
Anyway, set BIOS to default settings and test it again.
Try to obtain original Microsoft installation disc and check if windows setup will have full access to the HDD.
Please post some feedback.
I didnt create the cd by myself, it was delivered togteher with the laptop.
Can you tell me how to set BIOS to default settings?
I will try to get an original Microsoft disc as soon as possible. Is it important to use an disc with Vista or can I try any operating system?
