I've seen this happen multiple times when a hard drive is failing and getting frequent I/O errors. Unfortunately, the fix is to replace the hard drive and restore the system from DVD or CD recovery media.

Hopefully, you created recovery disks and stored them away for a rainy day such as this. If not, you can usually purchase recovery disks from the manufacturer for a (hopefully) reasonable price.

Trying to reformat Compaq Presario CQ50


Did you create a set of Recovery discs for this machine, before you wiped out Vista and installed Windows 7? There is a utility to do this and it relies on the original windows to work. When you formatted Vista, you erased the Recovery links from the windows partition, that allows the recovery to take place. The Recovery has to 'see' the original OS to confirm it is on the correct machine. It is known as a 'fingerprint' and is checked by the BIOS to make sure it is not being Pirated. If you have the key on the bottom, you may be able to download a new copy of Vista just for Compaq machines, and it will legally activate.

System Recovery


If you've upgraded from xp or another earlier version of Windows, you cannot do a recovery. Recovery only works on recovering the present system.
If you have upgraded I would suggest saving off all your important files to a DVD, flash drive or onto another partition and then format and reinstall xp or whatever you had before.

Compaq presario recovery commands


try starting the computer with the disk in the drive, I had to run the recovery disk on my compaq a few years ago, I think the disks pretty much tell you what to do. If you want to wipe it clear and lose everything type fdisk in the start/run prompt field. Then the recovery disk puts it all back to factory .
