How can I reinstall with a windows 7 upgrade

Hey Forum
I bought a acer TravelMate 7730 almost 2 years ago.
it had some problems with freezing.
and it is now so bad that I cant do anything on high power, without having it shut freeze. so here is the problem:
The computer came with windows vista and i rushed to get a windows 7 upgrade.
Now it has gone so bad with the computer and I wish to make a clean reinstallation, so I can start all over hoping this might solve some of the problems.

but how do I reinstall it?

Back up your files, Boot the DVD, follow these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

The DVD at boot will see an OS on the HD and allow use of Upgrade version key, even if you go on to use Custom>Drive Tools to repartition.

If you wipe the HD clean or use a new HD, you'll need to leave the Key blank up front and then do one of the workarounds given here to activate Upgrade version after it's installed to a blank HD: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Have you tried these troubleshooting steps yet? I'd at least run the hardware tests to make sure the issue is with Win7 and not hardware. Back up your files first.

You can easily google and find the legit download side for Microsoft .isos (run and managed by Microsoft). Download the one pertaining to your license version, and then you can do a fresh install....activating with your own legit key once the install is complete.

Remember...your license key is what makes you legal and legit.
