    Hello,

    did you checked your Recovery CD/DVD for scratches? Also it can be that your HDD has some faulty sectors which can be checked with Scandisk!
    Scandsk is a DOS based tool which is on every MS bootdisk. You will find different bootdisks at www.bootdisk.info
    When you will connect a FDD USB drive and start the notebok, you have to press F12 for boot menu! Choose FDD USB and the bootdisk will start. Then you can use scandisk.
    After that you can use a tool called format.com
    This will format your HDD.
    When you finished and cleaned your recovery CD you should try the recovery again!
