I wanted to go back to the factory installed Windows 7 using HP recovery manager. It started a format of the disk and got hung in between. Now the notebook does not even boot. I didn't create recovery disks.
How do I restore my noteback? I also checked on HP support site if I could order recovery disk. There were no recovery disks for this particular model and my notebook's serial number.
Appreciate any help.

Please call HP Technical support and order for the Recovery disc.
If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
If you are in another part of the world, start Here.
Before calling please try these steps to check if your Hardware off the unit is working fine. Once unit is powered on Keep tapping the F10 key go to Diagnostics Run the Hard drive & Memory test check if any part fails you might have to replace the part. If both the test passes then you can order the Recovery disc.
