Windows 7 Premium, starting to really play up

  martin p 15:53 22 Oct 2013

I can't find my original recovery 7 disc, not sure if it might be burned onto hardrive what can I do.

Everything is backed up so need to freshly install windows 7 64 bit by the way.

Any help would be appreciated

Just download Belarc Advisor. It's free and gives you all your |PC details including all licence numbers. Anyone's W7 disc will do as long as you use your PC licence and not any other

I have used it for years

Anyone's W7 disc will do as long as it is the same version as the one that is on the machine to be repaired. You cannot use a 32 bit disc to restore a 64 bit application, nor can you use a Professional or Ultimate disc to repair a Home Premium set up.
