I have a Compact Presario AMD athalon with 40 gig HD 640mb ram.XP home
I am trying to reinstall windows using the recovery CD's. The recovery gets to 60% and the system freezes.
I ran a diagnostic of the hard drive and it showed that it was good. I then wiped all data from the hard drive. I tried to install windows with a set of recovery discs but the system would freeze. I purchased a NEW set of recovery CD's from Compact. Wiped the hard drive and ran those with the same results as the first set. I dont know what else to do.:confused:

Have you installed any new hardware prior to running the recovery CD’s? If so remove the hardware and bring the system to its original state and run the Recovery again.
