Question about PC Desktops
The issue you are facing could be with the hard drive or with loading the OS where the recovery disc could be corrupt. You disconnect your ethernet cable, printers, scanners, webcam from your computer. Restart the computer and keep tabbing the F1 key (or F10 if you are using Windows Vista). You would see the BIOS main screen. Here the mouse won't work so use the arrow keys to go to the harddrive listed in the main screen. Could be the primary drive, secondary drive or so on and would have a alpha-numeric number. The others would have CD or DVD mentioned on them so you can understand. Select the hard drive, press enter. Select smart support on the new screen you would see and press enter. Select short smart self test to test the hard drive. Press enter to run the test. If you get any error message, you would need to replace the hard drive which should be corrupt, if its successful, then press F5 insert the recovery disc and press F10. Your system should restart and run the recovery. If that still fails, the disc should be corrupt. So you would need another recovery disc.
