Question about HP Pavilion a420n PC Desktop
I had to do system recovery on my computer. now when it gets to the last page of setup where you push finish, it just freezes on that screen, but the computer is making noises like it trying to work. what do I do
Quick and dirty here we go, before you click finish see if the hard drive light is on, if it is is it on steady or is it flashing. Doesn't matter so long as it is on, go have coffee for 30 minutes or so and then come back.
Check to see if the hard drive light is still flashing if it isn't then do this press ctrl+alt+del this will bring up an screen. On windows 7 you want to click on task manager then open the applications windows, look and see if there is anything there that says not responding. If not click the finish button and let it run for awhile.
Thing you have to realize about this system of installing is that everything is compressed and needs to be unpacked and this can take awhile to do this, also make sure that network cable and phone cable are disconnected from the computer.
Hope this helps

Insert the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive, or a system repair disc, and then shut down your computer.
Restart your computer using the computer's power button.
When prompted, press any key, and then follow the instructions that appear.
On the Install Windows page, or on the System Recovery Options page, choose your language and other preferences, and then click Next.
If neither the Install Windows page nor the System Recovery Options
page appear, and you're not asked to press any key, you might need to
change some system settings. To learn how to do this, see Start your computer from a Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive.
If you are using the Windows installation disc or USB flash drive, click Repair your computer.
Select the Windows installation you want to repair, and then click Next.
On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.
