So when you got your computer back from the geeks, it worked fine with Vista? Why did you send it to the geeks to begin with? Were there any hardware problems? There are several tests you can run, but first I'd like to know what the repairs were.

Also, please be specific on your HP model.

the first time i sent it in was because i would put the windows 7 or vista cd in and during the installation process my screen would flicker and go black and the pc would stop reading the disk they sent it back and said they repaired the lcd screen and the cd rom drive. i have recieved the pc from the first repair request and the same day i went to go pick it up from best buy and bring it home it was still having the same problem installing my os that i listed above so i sent it back for the second time today i got it back from the second repair request they said they replaced the hard drive this time and it had windows vista on it they installed vista useing the cds i loaned to theam but when i try and install vista or seven myself i still have the same problems i listed above the type of pc i have is an hp dv5-1125nr/core2 im not sure if that answered your question on the model

When you install Win 7, are you trying to do an upgrade or a clean install? What kind of Win 7 disk do you have? Is it an upgrade, full retail or are you referring to the restore disk?

Let's start off by flashing your firmware (bios).

**EDIT** Win 7 is supported, so that shouldn't be an issue.

i tryed to do a clean install so theres no os on the pc i read the directions for the link you just gave me and i think there would have to be a previous os on the pc in order for me to do this.

When you try to boot from dvd to install OS does it get to the BIOS/post screen?
