They you need to see if you can create one. Or if you have a hidden partition that is used to restore or purchase them from the company you bought the computer from.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Supply system info or go to online full manual on mfg's website to find out how to access your recovery partition through recovery console and do a factory restore.

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

If you get really desperate you can download an .ISO of Windows 7 here then activate it with the licence key that should be stuck to your computer. You may have to go through the telephone activation of reciting eight groups of number and getting another eight back to activate but it does work.

This time last week I was in the same position and managed to change from the 32 bit the computer came with to 64 bit. You will need the same type of installation that your licence key refers to, that is Home Premium or Professional.

This installation will completely erase anything on the disk during the installation. One advantage of this is that it doesn't install all the Dell OEM crap the computer came with

While Stuart is right, you will also lose any software that was bundled that you value. Like a light version of office or Some HP programs for scanning or printing.

I recommend you perform the factory restore and then burn the restore set before doing anything else. Then you can delete any HP crap you don't want.

OtheHill posted a link to the hp forum that tells you how to proceed in his first post.

They also have a link to help you buy a recover dvd (set). They may charge like $20 or so.
