Hello, I'm new here. I have an HP Laptop running Windows ME. I've been having so many problems with it, the CD drive and the power source....but that's a whole other thing. Right now I'm trying to Restore to my factory settings so I inserted the Recovery disk and walked through all the prompts. After loading through 1/2 it prompted me to put in the second cd to finish. Well my cd drive works once in awhile but not all the time. When I go to try to run the second CD it doesn't recognize there is a disk in the drive so I cannot finish recovering. I've tried this 3 times now and everytime I go to put in the second disk it does this. Now when I turn my computer on it says there is no operating system...what steps should I take in restoring my computer or should I just toss it!
