    Default Laptop help

    This is probably a stupid question but if your hard drive is wiped out and all is left is the memory on it, what do you do to get windows?

    Not a stupid question at all. You need to have a Windows installation disk or USB drive. You boot from the disk/USB, instead of your hard drive, and you install Windows.

    If you have access to another computer you can download it for free, and then burn it to a disk. Just make sure to get the one you have a key for. The specific Windows version and key for it should be on the bottom of your laptop.

    Yes, you burn the iso image to a disk using software like IMG burn. Be sure it's the Windows you legally have a key for on the back of your laptop.

    Has to be a DVD. A CD's capacity is too small.

    DVD-R or DVD-RW
