Try booting from a Knoppix CD to see if it works, if not, make sure your bios is set to boot from CD...

IF Bios is good and/or Knoppix works,then bad CD, if neither work, check your CD Drive...could be bad

Next try one of your "burnt discs" in another machine, not to install, just to boot.

Worst case, if our drive is good, google your Model and you can find a few people selling Recovery CD's that HP/Compaq no longer offer.

Also may want to make sure your HDD didnt go out...just a thought they MAY or may not have been overlooked

Good Luck
