  1. Hi :)

    Most laptops have a built in recovery system....use that...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Try to use options during boot. There is a key that can be pressed during boot (it varies among different vendors) that can launch the recovery.
    Alternatively, you could contact the support section of the manufacturer for a copy of the system disk. They provide that for a fee, some of them for free.
  3. I tried everything! I went into the recovery thingy but i can only restore it to like last week, i got my laptop for like 1 year! But now i found somthing, im asking if this would work. If i downalod Win7 proffessional 64 bit from this http://www.mydigitallife.info/download-windows-7-iso-official-32-bit-and-64-bit-direct-download-links/ then put it on a flash drive, would it work just like if i had an installation disk?!?!?!?!?

    Not windows recovery... you want your manufacturers recovery tool.. Usually a key you press as the machine is booting... which initiates the option.
    They dont make it too easy to find - or muppets would be wiping their machines by mistake.
    Whats the make and model o fyour laptop?

    Cheers
