Sorry, but i think the only thing you can do is reinstall windows vista, you'll need to buy a copy.

Sorry, unless someone else has an idea....


HP will sell you a recovery disk.
If this is just a driver problem, all the drivers are available at the HP site.

Normally you cannot use DELL Recovery CD's on other computer systems than DELL systems, as DELL verifies it
(something with an OEM-BIOS) ...

But normally you can buy a new recovery cd from HP ...
