Computer Won't Load Up?

So My HP Pavillion , which i've had since 2007, was completely filled with files i didn't need, it was running very slow, and i couldn't even open something without lag. I decided to completely format my harddrive, whilst using a sata-usb cable. It deleted all recovery files, and now when i try and turn on my computer, it can't load anything because the hard drive is blank, and i can't find any recovery disks for the, help?

Is your computer in the USA or out of the USA? What operating system did you have? 32/64 bit? Vista/windows7? home/premium/ultimate? USA/Canada:

Here are the specs for your HP Pavilion Desktop Computer and it's "Software and Driver Downloads" page. Unfortunately, neither HP nor it's UK preferred partner, Best2Serve, have HP Recovery Disc Kits available for your computer. Please perform an internet search for a provider of HP recovery media in your area.
