Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My two year old HP desktop crashed two weeks ago

\015 My HP desktop crashed two weeks ago and I can't get the system recovery disks to work! I ordered them from Computer Surgeons so they ought to be the right ones but I can't get the first one to run since my prior attempt caused a freeze on the third disk. HP said that I might need to return it to their factory to have the motherboard retattooed but they never replied to my email about the price so I fear I've got an expensive piece of junk that I can't afford to have repaired. The computer is a Media Center with added memory and the model number is a1612n. Help!!\015

Answers :

Your best option at this point may be to just try to reload the OS from sratch. You will loose all of your data but at least your PC will work again. If you have the original HP OS disk or Windows Media Center disk just put it into your CD/DVD drive and turn your PC on. Then when prompted, press any key to boot of the CD. Follow the on screen prompts to reload.
