Computer can't boot up

HP Recommended
Model No. s5703w
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I replaced the hard drive and don't have recovery discs for Windows 7. Error NVID Boot Agent 249.0542 comes up in DOS screen. How can  get a recovery disc or download? Microsoft said that I would have to go through the manufacturer because the computer came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed.

Sorry, but most likely you can't -- because HP no longer stocks the older Win7 recovery media.
