I have started running a recovery on my compaq pc but it has be at 74%for 12hrs. What can I do?
this is very strange. Might be your recovery cd have bad sectors which your laptop could not be able to read.
are you using recovery cd that comes with your compaq or you have created your own recovery cd after installing the windows.
if this is origianl cd and your laptop is in warranty just pick it up to the nearest service center and show it to them.
sorry one thing more there might be a problem in your DVD or CD drive. if you can change the cd drive and try again. thanks
