    hey guys~

    ive recently created the recovery disc from the recovery manager, ive installed it, say it would turn my laptop to the original factory setting, after i installed it, everything is clear, as i expected, but however, now my laptop performance shrink ALOT! i mean ALOT! i cant even run Need For Speed Undercover properly in the lowest graphical settings, do anyone know whats the problem here?

    ive checked the graphic card to see if its installed properly after the recovery and it is install and working properly, do anyone know the problem here?

    however after the recovery, i didnt seen to care about the window update that much, could this be the problem?does updates make a difference? my laptop has Intel Dou Core @ 2GHz and has 2GB RAM, and graphics NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS, my laptop now cant even run games at high graphics setting where prior to the recovery i can and very smooth

    Start by updating all of your drivers.

    EDIT:
    and yes, windows updates can make a huge difference. For example, no windows updates, no directx.

    1) go to windows update and get your OS up to date.

    2) Go to www.nvidia.com, click on the support/drivers link and get your video drivers up to date.

    3) will probably have to go to HP's website to grab the latest sound and other drivers.
