Hello, I have a HP DV7-1273CL laptop I received from a friend. The problem is there is no hardware being recognized in the BIOS, no HD, no Bluray drive and no USB drive when I insert one. The laptop will show the HP splash screen and then goes to a black screen with a message No Bootable devices insert disc and press any key. I have a brand new HD inside which means I can't do a recovery. How can I install a OS, or install any drivers if I can't access any of the hardware on the laptop? I've changed the boot order to have it boot off of the DVD drive first but no luck, also tried using a USB drive with the same results, nothing. Am i up a creek with this laptop, or is there any saving it? Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

problem was in the hardware, the dvd writer was not reading disc. Bought new drive now works perfectly.
