Hp pavilion elite installing windows seven from wiped hard drive

Upon installing windows 7 on a hp pavilion elite from a wiped hard drive I encountered a few issues. First I loaded everything as usual and when it came to partitioning I assumed it would have selected the correct one automatically. There were a few there two primary an u allocated space and one labeled hp. I believe the hp one was selected initially. It went on and completed the first step and was restarting. When it booted it up it went to a black screen with a _. I tried to troubleshoot using forums for similar issues no luck. So I reloaded windows seven and hit repair computer. It told me it recognized an error and asked to repair and restart. I did so. No change. Restarted computer with windows disc and reloaded install setup. This time I used a YouTube video to select proper partition. This video had no previous partitions so fed up I deleted all partitions that it would allow me too. It continued to the screen where it saves files then expands then load features etc. this time the computer froze at 28% expanding files. I left it for a while and no change the cursor wouldn't even move. So I shut off computer. Now when I turn computer on the monitor displays no signal. I have checked and rechecked cables it's all right and proper. The go symbol lights up on coy and I can hear fan but no matter how many times I restart it it still displays no signal. Please advise

How are you doing the install? Are you booting a Windows 7 install DVD?
Follow this tutorial: Clean Install Windows 7

When in Drive Options, delete all partitions until the drive is completely unallocated, then click Next. The install will create and format the partitions it needs.

I loaded win7 via DVd. I did delete all partitions that it would allow but as I said at the end of my post after doing so it froze during install. now monitor displays no signal and I know all cables are working properly.

Sounds like a hardware problem to me, power, memory or hard drive.

Power off, unplug the power cord.
Open the case.
Remove the CMOS (CR2032) battery.
Press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Reinstall the CMOS battery.
Plug in the power and try booting.

Power off, unplug the power cord.
Remove half the memory.
Plug in the power cord and see if it will boot.
If not swap the installed and removed memory and try again.

Since it's a Desktop PC, could also be the power supply. If you don't have a replacement take the computer to a reputable repair shop, let them check it out.

If there were a bunch of factory partitions left on the disk then it was not wiped and there was no Clean Reinstall - far from it.

It explains this as well as everything else needed to get a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 in the blue link. Over 1.5 million consumers have followed it without a single complaint. They have the best installs of Win7 in the world.

How much did they charge you?

You could have followed Clean Reinstall Windows 7 and saved the money, plus you'd have a better install than anyone else can do besides us.

Let us know how it performs.
