Enter BIOS setup by tapping/holding the F10 key immediately after powering on the laptop.Use Diagnostics to test your hdd.
If hdd passes Diagnostics,try booting with a utilty cd to delete all partitions, create 1 partition & format hdd. I have had good results with the free Partition Wizard .Download the Bootable CD iso here .Get ImgBurn here to burn the image to cd.
After all operations with PW are complete try booting with your Recovery disks again.Be sure to unplug any external devices such as printer,etc. Only have kbd,mouse & monitor attached.
