Windows Vista Recovery Disc failure

I have an older HP G60 laptop that will not boot up. I just get a blinking cursor on a blank screen. I downloaded and ran the Windows Vista Recovery disk, and the initial diagnostic script appears to run fine, but at the point when the screen text reads "testing midori status", the text disappears from the top of the screen down and the screen goes dark. I've tried running the disc again, but I get the same result every time. Is there any fix for this? Thanks!
