Please help: Windows 7 auto recovery failure, now I'm worse off than before..

Hello all,
I need some guidance with my Compaq cq62 laptop. I bought the Windows 7 recovery disc pro edition yesterday. Ran virus scan, which cleaned out some Trojans. Then ran auto repair for my C drive which was successful and rebooted. Now it is stuck on the Q logo splash screen (the one that says to press esc for startup options) but pressing esc only causes the laptop to emit that awful beeping. Of course I only loaded from CD on a one time basis; I did not change the BIOS settings to load from disc every time.
Please help? All hot keys fail and laptop just beeps at me.
Thanks in advance...
