  • If your laptop came with Windows 7 on it, there should be a Recovery Partition on the hard drive.  Read your Owner's Manual or contact the Technical Support for the laptop and inquire as to how you activate the Recovery option.

    You can also contact the laptop manufacturer and request to purchase a Recovery DVD.
