Hi,

 

I would suggest trying the following procedure - this should tell you whether there is a physical ( ie Hardware ) problem with the notebook or if the issue is with the Recovery procedure.

 

If you have ( or can borrow ) a retail Windows 7 installation disc that is exactly the same version as your original OEM installation - ie as your notebook came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit this is the exact retail version you would need.

 

If you don't have access to a retail disc, you can create an installation disc yourself on another PC - just download the correct Disc Image from the link below and use an application such as ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly to a blank DVD - a guide on using ImgBurn to write an ISO to a disc is Here.  These Images are clean and from a well-respected source, however there are only limited versions available.

 

Windows-7 sp1-iso-official-32-bit-and-64-bit

 

Use the disc to perform the installation, enter the Windows activation key found on the underside of your notebook when requested and when the installation has completed, use the 'Phone Method' detailed in the link below to activate the OS - this method supported by Microsoft and is popular with people who just want a clean installation of Windows 7 without the additional software load normally bundled with OEM installations.

Any additional drivers you may need can be found Here.

 

Does this install Ok?

Thanks and appreciate the solution help provided.

I will be starting downloading the exact ISO file from the link provided. Can I write that downloaded file on the CD with any application?? (you have suggested "ImgBurn")

Regards

Hi,

 

A couple of points:

 

1.  Given the size of the file, you will need a blank DVD.

 

2.  You can use any application that is capable of writing a disc image ( .ISO ).  An ISO file has to be created in a particular way which is different from the usual way files are burned to a disc.
