Do you have a Windows 7 Installation Disk? If you do not this is going to be a difficult fix.

What you need to do:

1) Boot using a Windows 7 Installation Disk (If you need help with that, let me know)

2) Right after the BIOS Splash screen, start hitting "F8" repeatedly... like a lot.

3) You will be prompted to a menu, choose "Repair your Computer"

4) If it asks for which installation choose, Windows 7

5) After the automatic System Repair is finished, it will ask you what to do next.

6) Choose "View Advanced Diagnostic Tools" (Or something like that, I am doing this from memory lol)

7) In the next menu, choose Command Prompt.

8) Once there you need to type this exactly, without quotations, also each "_" represents a space.

- "sfc_/scannow_/offbootdir=C:\_/offwindir=C:\windows"

This scan may take quite awhile. What it does is scan all of your essential windows files and components, and will automatically repair them. You will get a message at the end telling you if it made a repair, or if it did not find anything.

9) Next you are going to run CHKDSK. To do this type: "chkdsk C: /f /r" This will run Checkdisk and it will also scan, and repair any Windows files.

10) Restart your computer after everything is done. Generally this is an hour to 2 hour process.

I hope this helps.

All you really need is a DVD/CD RW I can give you a link for a good windows 7:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Foru...

On that link there is 2 different versions of Win 7 HP SP1. I used those isos to create a few system disks here at my shop.

For all of you out there who have Win 7, I suggest creating this disk, or going further and creating an All-In-One Windows 7 Install disk which has all versions 64 and 32 bit.

How to make an ALL IN ONE bootable CD

Every Windows 7 Install Iso

Good luck!

Unfortunately, you can't use Dell-brand recovery software on an HP.

However, per what flogo2003 said, you should be able to get into the recovery

management option via a Windows 7 recovery disc.

If you know anyone with a pc that has Win 7 on it, you can have them burn

off a recovery disc for you to use.

Go to a computer with an internet connection, go to HP's website, under support section, (you may be asked for model number), enter that. You should be able to find the drivers under network link (this will be more than likely going to be wireless) download that unto a usb drive and then stick it in the machine and run the app from the usb ( this may take several tries as manufacturers use different components across the same model)

This may not be the best option, but do you know anyone who uses Torrents and could get you a fresh copy of Windows 7?

Bear in mind, I *strongly* discourage such a method, but it *is* out there...
