How to Repair Windows if you have lost CD that came with PC / Laptop

You may not be able to repair Windows if you have lost CD that came with PC / Laptop. The dics that comes with you PC is often a taylor made CD / or DVD which has all of the drivers for you computor.

The best thing to do it this:

  1. Go on ebay and buy a copy of windows, you may buy an install disc from another computer which will often work just fine. Example.
  2. So next start up[ ypuir PC and insert the disc, an option to repair may pop up. If not you may have to re-install.
  3. Re-install windows using the disc. Swith off PC, put in the disc and then turn back on. Follow on screen instructions. For windows 7 these are particulalry clear.
  4. You will then need to install drivers for your PC, as it is unlikly thety will be included on the windows install cd.
  5. Vist the download / sipport section of your PC manufcaturers website. and down load the drivers you need. 
  6. INstall these drivers, and some antivirus.
  7. Start using your PC.
This process takes around 3 hours, and if your PC is from a smaller manufacturer drivers may not be avaialble. So it may be worth finding a direct replacement for your repair disc. Again look on ebay.

A very cheap HP computer can be purchased from ebay. HP have very good web service for download of drivers.
