Specs: Windows 7, intel i5/4gigs ram
I only get 2 options from system restore go back to previous restore point or reinstall windows. I made recovery disks once i got the laptop so i could have recovery disks because it did not come with any. if i go with the second option can i just use the recovery disks to reinstall windows and drivers that came factory?

✔ Best Answer
If you already made a set of recovery discs (very sensible, good man) all you have to do is insert the first recovery disk into the CD drive and restart your laptop. It should boot from that CD to start factory recovery (including all the drivers).

If the laptop doesn't boot from the CD, you will have to go into BIOS Setup and set your CD/DVD drive as the first boot device. Then save and exit BIOS Setup.

Reply #2 above definitely should work for you. Congratulations in that you are probably among the 20% of users to made the recovery disk set when the computer was new. Very good.
Your computer also should be able to launch the Recovery Console by tapping the F9 key during the boot up. From there, you also should be able to begin the Factory Restore. The only differences between starting the recovery from the recovery disk set is that it will even work with a new hard drive in the event that the hard drive is bad, or if the recovery partition has been damaged (F9 recovery) and will not start.
Three things to remember:
First, All programs and files that you added since you purchased it will be lost so back up all of your files to an external drive and gather program install disks and downloaded installers so you are ready.
Second, This should be your last resort, so if you are not absolutely sure that there is no other way to fix or recover your system, wait and explain what your problem(s) are and see if there is another way.
Third, As soon as your recovery is finished, you will need to manually start a Windows Update (possibly multiple ones) to get all of your updates back, uninstall all of the useless programs that the factory assumes you absolutely need (or accepts money to include), install your preferred antivirus program, and then begin the task of getting it back all of your settings, preferences, programs, and files.
Good luck

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
