i got an old laptop – how do i reinstall windows? – RedFlagDeals.com Forums

I bought my Dad a computer from BestBuy in Jan. I\’m guessing Windows is pre-installed in all laptops from there.Dad has decided to give me his laptop. Great!Windows is registered under his name. I\’d like to either re-register it to me or reinstall Windows. I think I\’d prefer the latter because the computer seems a bit slow and I\’m hoping a reinstall will fix that. But if I can just change the name maybe I won\’t be as tempted to do so :)Anyway Dad doesn\’t have a CD for windows. Doesn\’t remember receiving a CD for it with the computer.What are my options for Windows?

There is probably a recovery partition on the drive with Windows. Google your brand/model and see how to enter recovery and just refresh the system.
