Just put the Recovery Disk in the drive and the system should start booting from it. If not, pay close attention to the screen and when it shows you which key to hit to change the boot order or boot sequence hit it. Change the boot sequence to read from the CD drive. This is a temporary change on the boot sequence.
If you want to make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence you will need to hit the key that says enter Bios or System Setup and change it there.
Since the WARRANTY still is valid, the easiest route is to exercise the warranty.
Or, use the supplied "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs to reload Windows (this will wipe-out any data from your 'C:' disk-drive).
It might be possible to temporarily remove the disk-drive, connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in another computer, and then to copy all your files onto DVD-writable disk(s), before sending it in for warranty service.
It sounds like the computer may be trying to boot of of a CD or USB drive. Make sure no discs are in the drive and that nothing other than the AC cable is plugged in when you turn it on.
If that doesn't fix it, it's probably a problem with your Hard Drive and/or the BIOS. In either case, the best thing to do is to send it in to HP to be fixed, as there is a 1 year manufacturers warranty.

They will send you a box to put your computer in, and pre-pay postage.
On startup press f2 and go to the boot section menu and select your harddrive as first boot device to stop the anoying message.When the laptop next boots it will load from the hdd and not search for a boot disc.
it would be easy...i think you can do that alone..if file missing only...try to repair your windows....first, what operating sytem do you have? XP or vista?....i hope you have the oroginal cd for that...if you have,then no problem.....lets start....
1.go in bios setup..change the setting into the CDrom boot.
2.insert the OS disk and save the setting in the bios and amke restart.
3.you can boot now into the OS cd and press any key to continue..and you will install now the windows....
No, the DMI issue will remain. It has to do with the recovery operating system being linked to the machine's serial number. Purchase an operating system disc and that will take care of it. The only catch is that you will need to install some drivers for your machine after the install. All the drivers can be found at Toshiba's support site. Keep in mind that the hard drive not booting may be a hard drive failure in which the drive may need replaced, but just a new hard drive will not solve the DMI issue.
