My mom just had a similar problem. Either take it to your local computer shop, or if you registered with your computer dealer (If you bought it from say HP like we did or a similar service) have them send you a recovery disk. Usually they will only charge you shipping and handling. Your local computer shop will charge too much and put a generic version on your computer lacking programs that came pre-installed.. I'm just babbling :oops:
