How to use my recovery cd?

Question

I was doing a recovery, and my pc locked up. I had to shut down power to unlock. In doing so, this destroyed everything on the hard drive. Can I or how can I reload the recovery disks I have using only the key board to access my pc? Also I think I lost some drivers, because I get a message to load dlls. I do not have a reboot disk, and I can not get my pc to reboot from a cd .

Can't boot from a CD???? Restart your machine push the button to enter setup (usually del key or F2) From there you can change the boot squence to have your machine look in the CD-rom first Exit and save the changes Your machine will restart (try to have the recovery cd in the drive by now) It should work then.
