In that case after following the steps above, delete E and Resize C to the left to take up the space.

What is Titan? If it's a Linux distro you may need to uninstall GRUB first.

Sara have you thought about getting the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

HP's have the worst load of factory crapware and useless utilties in the industry. Getting a Clean Reinstall is better than getting a new HP.

We can help you get it perfect here.

If it's bootleg then I would wipe the HD using Diskpart Clean Command from the installer's Command Line, before Clean Reinstalling.

Sara,
Are you willing to make a backup of all data on the computer dear to your heart and then make a 100% clean install of Win 7 which will remove all HP traces from your laptop?

Greg has performed and helped others perform a 100% clean, sans HP software, on HP laptops numerous times.

I did not know that HP laptops were sold with Win 7 Professional preinstalled, which doesn't mean that they aren't. Generally, they come with Home Premium installed.

My suggestion would be to wipe the disk clean and then install Win 7 fresh. The last HP that I had in my hands where I did this was about 5 years ago and the HP came with Vista installed.

Hello Karl ,

yes I think that I will follow all the instructions that Greg gave me . But there is one more thing , how about the different Drivers ? when I bought the Laptop they did not give me anyone , they told me that I don't need them and that everything is on the Computer , is that right ? when i reinstall win 7 will all my peripheriques work correctly ?
