    I want to reinstall my Laptop as it is starting to run slow after years of bad practice on it!
    Anyways, i don't really know how to get them, i have a genuine version of Vista installed (it came with it when i bought it from PC World)

    Anyone know where i can get another reinstall CD from that will still mean i have a genuine copy of Vista?

    Its a HP Compaq, on the bottom it calls it a Presario F500. And a litle lower from that it says: F504eu. Need any more info let me know.

    Is it anything to do with this page?
