They should accommodate you with new recovery CD's with an adequate explanation from you. What happened to the second recovery CD you made?

May be a small charge for the disc from HP but worth the time and effort.

Hope this helps!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
