Question about HP Pavilion a620n (PC028A) PC Desktop
If the disk looks to be ok it probably is. If the disk were at fault, I would expect some other error reported. So the problem must lie in the laptop. If you can boot into the Bios, look to see if the new Hard Drive is properly detected, if not, the shop that sold you that bill of goods should have another chance to get it right. You can also try loading the Bios Defaults (remember to "save and exit") and see if that helps. If you take it back, will they load the OS and drivers for you?

All of the information that is needed for the recovery disks to work will be on the old hardrive in a hidden partition. As you have changed the hard drive the recovery disks will not work

HP recovery discs can be used to return a computer's software configuration to its original condition. HP provides a recovery solution on the hard drive, but it is still a good idea to keep recovery discs stored in a safe place in the event of a hard drive failure. Use the sections in this document to obtain a recovery solution that works best for you.NOTE:HP computers designed for commercial use, such as Workstations or Pro series, use "Operating System" or "HP Restore Plus" DVDs. To order these types of discs, go to the HP Replacement Part Store . Recovering your computer without recovery discsYou may not need recovery discs to recover the software on your computer. HP provides a recovery solution on a separate area of the hard drive. If the hard drive is still functional, you can still perform an HP system recovery from the hard drive as long as the recovery information has not been destroyed or corrupted.To do a software recovery from the hard drive, turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. If your computer originally came with Windows XP or earlier, press F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.If you are simply trying to restore the computer to factory install, you may not need the recovery discs.
