What are the steps to install new disk for Compaq Presario Notebook 61-420US

I bought a Western Digital Scorpio Blue 320 GB Sata Hard Drive to replace the original fried.  The drive is installed.  After turning on the laptop computer, the error message was "no boot device found".

I turned off laptop and you press F2.  I am running a test drive, the first version short then long.

What are my next steps?

I have the HP recovery discs?

Thank you!

Hello

The error message indicates that there is nothing to start, it means that an operating system is not installed, or the MBR is corrupted, that is not your case. The hard drive is ok, but you must restore the system using the recovery disks, you got.

It's simple, change the startup option in the BIOS to CD/DVD-ROM as the first one (press ESC on startup, press F10), then you can insert the No. 1 disc in the optical drive recovery. Save the settings of the BIOS (reboot), then follow the instructions (click on factory reset). It worked for me that way...
