  • Hi,

     

    Please refer Carey’s link above to obtain the CD/DVD.

    ·         Also, if the system is preinstalled by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and the manufacturer did not include Vista disks, there should be a Recovery Partition on your Hard drive. At the bottom of the splash Screen at startup/power on, there usually is a Key number, F10, or F11, to hit to start Recovery Process, to take it back to factory standards (out of the box). Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a factory standards recovery by selecting the Repair computer option. See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website or contact their support for info on how to do a Recovery. Each manufacturer has their own way of doing a Recovery to factory standards.
