First thing that comes to mind is have you downloaded all of the updated driveras from the manufacturers web site? Most apps won't work unless you do.
Have you downloaded all the Windows updates?

Let us know what the OS is and then we will be in a better possition to advise.

    Software has no warranty, so even if you were able to take it back, they wouldn't do anything about it.
    Check those drivers!
    Good luck with it and I'm sure you'll fix it in the end.

It sounds like your reformat of the Hard Drive wiped Vista Gamer Ed and nothing is left on the system but ROM BIOS. Two fixes - (1) rewind time by extracting your HDD and installing it into a working system, then UNFORMAT the HDD, and retry Win7 install after booting into Vista Gamer Edition, or Better Solution:(2) retry Win7 install by installing Win7 from a bootable CD. It has to be a bootable Win7 install CD, since your computer is no longer bootable from the (reformatted) Hard Drive. How you know this: noisy beeps when you press any key to select any boot option or try to run the HP diagnostics.

Heres where HP lets you order bootable recovery CDs:

Hello,if this is the first time that happens its OK but if every time you play or you stressed the CPU shutdowns or restarts the you should take it to a repair shop.You can download a program to monitor the temperatures to see if its a CPU or graphic cards overheating.As i can see your graphic card is low-mid range and on-board so don't stress it, putting high resolutions or high details and make it overheating and stress more your CPU.

Recovery required but no CD available

Boot into bios, setup to start on a cd.
Burn from another machine first:
a WinPe, BartPe, Ubuntu, Knoppix, etc. Bootable CD.
Boot with any of these and see what happened to your files.

You never even stated what OS you had.

Sounds 2 hot.
