hi guys, firstly i'm new here however have always looked here for help with any issues and found what i have been after.
ok, so i'll jump right in.. I use my laptop to dj with 4 nights a week so as you can imagine it is very important to me and a vital part of my income.
a few weeks ago i had an issue where i had somehow picked up a virus and it forced me to do a complete format and reinstall of windows. however since then it has been running very hot and cpu usage has gone through the roof.
and bios are up-to date and the laptop is fully optimised for audio processing.
the specs are as follows:
hp g62 450sa
60gb ocz vertex ssd (with os on)
500gb 7200rpm hdd in drive bay (music only)
i have read that another complete reinstall may fix the problem, which i am prepared to do.. however onto the next problem, i left a cd walled in a club last week which had my recovery discs in it, when i went back the next week it was gone!!
has anyone got any ideas on how to get around or sort this, or is there anywhere that i can download a copy of the install discs. i have spoken with microsoft and they are willing to re-authorise my product key when i re-install.
sorry to ramble on, i appreciate its a big first post, but im pulling my hair out here.
