    Windows 7 HP 64bit, Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64BIT


    Just a FYI, MS Office 2010 has built in labels from a bunch of vendors including Avery so no need for the Avery wizard. Open Word, Mailings, Labels and select Options.

    I had thought of that, Jim, but not soon enough. But I'll remember it once I get all my software reinstalled.

    the above is an indication that no OS is seen by the bios; it DOESNOT mean the hdd is non-serviceable; and what it tried is probably to connect to the net to get the boot files?

    from your postings I understand HP is doing system recovery;

    all the best

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully, I won't need it again. I'm still stumped over why Recovery wouldn't work.

    Yes, thankfully, the packaging for the computer should be here today and she'll prolly be on her way to the computer hospital tomorrow.
