I have a Compaq Pressario CQ60-418DX. It's a major heat maker (I still have a mark on my leg from the burn) and then it started acting goofy and throwing Blue Screens. After one such BS, when I got it to restart half of the programs were messed up and things weren't working right at all and errors that came up pointed to damage to hardware. I ordered the restore disks, as the ones I made are in storage far away from me.
I bought a new hard drive for it, but nothing much happens when I go to run the restore disks. It does the basic start up and I did go in and tell it to boot the CD/DVD drive before the HD, but all I can seem to get it to do is have the blinking cursor. I can get into the BIOS, but I don't know what else to do. I've been searching around for an answer and so far haven't been able to find anything yet.
Anyone know anything?
