Yes it should and ebay is a good place to start. Must be the same version as the one originally installed, but are you sure there's no recovery partition on your machine?

Once you have a CD, yes. The only difficulty sometimes is finding some of the drivers that aren't part of Windows.

If you made a recovery disc, that should include the drivers. If you did, why are you asking where you can get a recovery disc from????

You need to run a disk check on your drive.

Download and burn ultimate boot CD click here
bot from the CD and run the disk checks
